Fragile — Christ for Creation Series
Summary: Through fragile things, Jesus Christ perfects his power.
Key Scripture: “[T]o keep me from being too elated, a thorn was given me in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to torment me, to keep me from being too elated. Three times I appealed to the Lord about this, that it would leave me, but he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness.’ So, I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. Therefore I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities for the sake of Christ; for whenever I am weak, then I am strong.” — 2 Corinthians 12:7b-10
Key Scripture: “And [God the Father] has put all things under [Jesus’] feet and has made him the head over all things for the church, which is his body, the fullness of him who fills all in all.” — Ephesians 1:22-23
Key Scripture: “God saw everything that he had made, and indeed, it was very good.” — Genesis 1.31a
Life Application: Consider how Jesus uses your weaknesses to do his work. How does thinking about this change your understanding of what you consider to be weakness?
