The Strength Of Weakness

From Series: The Pastor's Study, Volume 3

2 Corinthians 12:1  (ID: 2245)

As fallen creatures, we tend to think that we are most effective when we are strongest. The Bible, however, reminds us that any spiritual strengths we have are gifts from God and should not become a basis for boasting. Like Paul, we must learn to accept that our weaknesses can and will be used by God. Alistair Begg warns us not to rely on our own power, but instead to embrace our utter dependence on our heavenly Father.

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.
