Limitations: The Key to Usefulness

From Series: Lessons For Life, Volume 2

2 Corinthians 12:1-10  (ID: 2922)

Have you ever considered the possibility that your limitations and weaknesses are actually the key to your usefulness in service of the Lord Jesus Christ? In 2 Corinthians, Paul boasted of his weakness in order to testify about God’s strength. Alistair Begg reminds us that difficulties in the Christian life are inevitable but useful. When we realize our own insufficiency, we are left with the knowledge that we are dependent wholly on God, and that He alone is worthy of praise.


Paul's Visions and His Thorn

1I must go on boasting. Though there is nothing to be gained by it, I will go on to visions and revelations of the Lord.
