Two weeks ago, my friend, James Acree, preached at his church on 2 Corinthians 12:9-10. This has been a precious passage to me the last 10 years or so. Among others, the Lord has used it to completely reorient my faith. (For my thoughts on these verses, click here and here).
I really appreciated what James had to say on these verses. He talks about how our instinct is to escape or get rid of weakness. Yet that instinct is often fleshly. The alternative James explores is trusting Christ to be our ability even in the midst of weakness. Such truth is ever-relevant to the human condition.
I would encourage you to listen to James’s message. It starts at about the one hour mark. If you listen and have any thoughts, please leave a comment!
