FORTHCOMING TITLE, ETA AUGUST 2024
This overview of the theme of weakness in the Bible offers readers practical encouragement and hope as they learn to view their frailties as part of God’s plan and purpose for their lives. Our culture—and sadly, the church too—deifies strength. Who has the most successful ministry, the largest congregation, or the godliest family? Our misplaced faith in human strength is a false hope with no basis in Scripture. Conversely, we associate weakness with powerlessness and personal failure. But a closer look throughout Scripture reveals the central role human frailty plays in the redemption story. From Genesis to Revelation, when God’s people are at their weakest, his power is made perfect. Far from an undesirable defect, God designed our weakness to draw us closer to Jesus. As you learn to accept the good gift of weakness, you will experience true strength, the kind that only comes from a loving and infinitely powerful God.
