Human Weakness and Strength
I am going to write about human weakness and strength in doing God’s work. Our heavenly Father indeed knows how weak we are; He knows we are made of dust. He knows our carnal mind leads us to death. But God has shown us that He is a God of love, mercy and grace in the way He has worked with prophets, disciples and His beloved Son, Jesus Christ of Nazareth. The God of the Bible, the God of Israel, the God of our fathers, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob and the God of David, has revealed His character to us. He has provided us with the way to make a friendship with Him, that is to follow the example of Jesus Christ.
Jesus was tempted, tested and tried, leading to death on the cross. After three days and nights in the grave the God of our fathers raised him back to life. The God of the Bible uses the example of Jesus Christ to show how human nature can be transformed to strength and eternal life.
My appeal to all brothers and sisters is to let us make use of our human weakness to do God’s will and follow the perfect example of our Lord Jesus Christ. Scriptural references reveal his work: Philippians 2:5-11; Hebrews 1:1-4; 2:9-18; 4:14-16; 12:2-3; 1 Peter 2:2125; Romans 8:31. “If God is for us, who can be against us?”
