The potency of Paul’s apostolic ministry was not in his strengths and savvy religious credentials but rather, in his profound sense of weakness.
It was there – in weakness – that God’s power came into full effect…
And He has said to me, and His declaration still stands, my grace is enough for you, for power is moment by moment coming to its fill energy and complete operation in the sphere of weakness. – 2 Corinthians 12:9 (WUEST NT)
In this message, we explore characteristics of the apostle Paul and those who received miracles from Jesus during His ministry on earth. They have this one thing in common, weakness.
Are you trying to be strong or hot or zealous for God? The Pharisees were like that, and they received nothing. There is no flow towards human will-power. That leads to exhaustion, disillusionment, and bitterness.
Grace is not a religion.
Grace is a person, and His name is JESUS. Rest in Him, and let His grace be your sufficiency.
We pray this message blesses you.
God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble – 1 Peter 5:5
