Hillsong Worship


Hillsong Worship - I Will Boast In Christ - Christian Music Videos

Bragging and boasting about ourselves and our possessions is generally not the best way to win people over. You’ll only annoy and aggravate. People will avoid a braggart like a plague. However, Psalm 44:8 states that “In God we boast all the day long, and praise your name forever. Selah.”

We all have our shortcomings and failures and have made our fair share of mistakes. In Paul’s letter to the Romans, he reminds us of this fact. Writing in Romans 3:23,” For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” 

However, a song from Hillsong Worship tells us that we do have reason to boast. It’s not because of ourselves or due to anything we own. No, instead, it’s because of Christ and because of what he has done for us. 

The song’s first verse tells listeners what exactly Christ has done for them. The lyrics mention the price he paid to release us from the bondage of sin and death.

And it’s because of that act of Christ, his dying on the cross for our sins, that we are able to boast in his name, as the chorus states.

“I will boast in Christ alone
His righteousness
And not my own”

Later in the song, the musicians go on to mention the power of Christ’s blood that he shed for all sinners. As the song says, Jesus Christ’s spilled blood has the power to take away our sins and mend our broken lives. 

As the video shows, a stadium full of people is hearing and singing along to this song with lyrics telling this message of the redeeming power of Christ’s blood, which he shed for you and for me.

Galatians 6:14 “But far be it from me to boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.”
