Why does God say, “My grace is sufficient for you?”
And what does it mean that God’s power is made perfect in weakness?
Ponder, for a moment, all the ways God displays his power. He controls the raging, torrential storms and the crippling droughts. He causes pompous, blustery dictators and kings and presidents to rise and fall.
Occasionally, he puts the laws of nature in detention and does the miraculous, like when a woman in our church was healed from terminal Stage 4 breast cancer.
God isn’t like the insecure, overly pimpled high school bully who constantly feels like he needs to establish his dominance. He’s quite confident in his power and has an infinite variety of ways he can flex his figurative biceps. Throughout scripture, God makes it clear that we should have a healthy fear of the Lord.
All of this makes God’s preferred method of showing off his power rather strange. God’s grace is sufficient, and his is power is made perfect…
