2 Corinthians 12.9-10 – July 2, 2020

2 Corinthians 12:9–10

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 about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.  (2 Corinthians 12:9–10, NIV)

What more do we need than the grace of God?

Thought Questions:

What is your initial reaction when you hear the statement: power is made perfect in weakness? How do you think most people think about power?

Why do people think it weak when we have to rely on someone else or depend on their strength?

In what ways have you been able to delight in weakness, hardships, or difficulties? How have these things served to strengthen your faith?
