In this video J.I. Packer addresses how Christian weakness is a way of life. A life of faith is one that trusts God. The Apostle Paul recounts his own struggle, asking God to take it away. He tells us God’s answer to him:
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 of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong. (2 Cor. 12:9–10)
Is this the way we characterize our Christian life?
Christians who can no longer listen to one another will soon no longer be listening to God either. ― Dietrich Bonhoeffer
