Power Made Perfect In Our Weakness
On Sunday, John said that everyone has their “highlight reel” that they show the world but they don’t tell the whole story. The “highlight reel” only show the good stuff like our strengths and abilities, but when it comes to our weakness they stay hidden and out of sight. When you look across culture how do you see this idea playing out? What examples come to mind?
Read 2 Corinthians 11:4-5. Paul is confronting these “super-apostles” because they are pulling the church away from the simplicity of the Gospel. John said they were doing this by raising the value of appearance and achievement (the highlight reel) over authenticity and obedience.
Read 2 Corinthians 12:7-10. Paul was given a thorn in the flesh that kept him from becoming proud and boastful. Three times Paul prayed for God to remove it but each time God response was the same. God said his power is made perfect in weakness. How does weakness show God’s power?
Think about the areas of your life that you feel weak in, those areas of your life that are filled with pain, hurt, unforgiveness, regret, etc. How would it feel to know that those are the exact areas where God’s power wants to be released?
What is one step you would be willing to take to allow God into that area of your life where you are weak? How can this group encourage and pray for you?
