Christ's Power In Our Weakness
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. – 2 Corinthians 12:9
The world shames any sign of weakness. At best, they will pity weakness. At worst, they mock it, boasting about their own strength.
We humans in our sinful nature love to boast about our own strength. We are selfish and only care about what we can do.
But when we fixate completely on ourselves, we are also limited by ourselves. That's what happens when we boast about ourselves.
But when we remove ourselves from the picture and boast about Christ, we uplift Christ while humbling ourselves before Him.
