Weakness and Strength

As Americans, we value strength and shame weakness. We want a strong economy, a strong military, and a strong currency. And it is very common for men and women to frequent the gym to maintain their personal strength. But in 2 Corinthians 12, we find something else being celebrated: weakness. Why? Because as followers of Christ, when we concede our weakness and trust God for strength, the power of Christ rests upon us!

Suffering With Christ

While Jesus’ life was one of difficulty, His final week leading up to the crucifixion was one of extreme and intense suffering. He would be betrayed, arrested, forsaken, lied about, tried, beaten, scourged, and then crucified. And yet despite knowing all of this, He rode into Jerusalem for the joy set before Him.

As we continue our series on the reality of afflictions, we look to the sufferings of Christ, and find examples for us in our own suffering.

The book of Isaiah among one of the most cited sources from the Old Testament, and for good reason. While Isaiah deals with contemporary issues to Israel, he also foretold many world events as well as giving many details about the coming Messiah, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Another theme of Isaiah, as we explore in today’s program, is the concept of God’s identity and sovereignty. Amidst a backdrop of coming captivity and restoration, God reveals His power, to the comfort of His people.
