Power in Weakness

Morning Service
Mar 19, 2023

In 2 Corinthians 12, Paul recounts the gospel paradox: power in weakness. We experience God's grace and see his power not ultimately when he removes hardship from us, but when he strengthens us to walk through hardship. God is sovereign, wise, and good, and there is no weakness or affliction that he brings upon us that is ever wasted. It is precisely this picture of power made perfect in weakness, that reminds us of what Christ accomplished on the cross—a once and for all victory over sin and death. 

Topics: Affliction, Contentment, Suffering, Sovereignty of God

2 Corinthians 12:1-10
