|“...we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.”|
“...there was given me a thorn in my flesh...Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”
Paul the apostle,
The Proof: (8-9)
The Paradox: (10-12)
When has God used a weakness of yours to demonstrate His strength?
When did you feel inadequate and God’s adequacy came through?
Were you first attracted to Christianity by God working through someone else’s weakness?
