Sufficient

October 19, 2011 Leave a comment

What’s the good word? In 2 Corinthians 12 Paul reminds us that Christ says, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” I don’t know about you, but sometimes for me that is just too hard to remember. I mean, why is it that we don’t often feel as though Christ’s grace is enough for us? Or, for that matter, why is it we don’t think that Jesus is enough?  I wonder if we really know what we have in Jesus? For it is our faith in Jesus that can cause mountains to move.  There’s nothing that can supplement the Savior- no program, no software, no ministry. Nothing! And even when we feel we aren’t doing well, or that we may not be up to the task at hand, we are reminded that God’s power is perfected in weakness.

It’s hard to live out a grace dependent life; we want to get to heaven by the work of our own two hands. It’s a hard pill to swallow- being really helpless and needy before the sight of God. He is not for feeling good or for comfort, but rather for life itself. May we refuse to forget where we came from and what we are capable of.

Had To Share

What’s the Good Word? Well, not so much a word this time, but I was recently at the Catalyst Conference in Atlanta last week and saw these guys and saw this video. Out of the blue, one of my members sent it to me not knowing this at all. As such, I believe it’s divine intervention telling me to share. So, nothing serious this time, but have a laugh, don’t take it seriously, and have fun! Here’s the link:

And that’s the good word for today!
