1 Corinthians 2:1When I came to you, brothers, I did not come with eloquence or wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God.Â 2For I decided to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.Â 3I came to you in weakness and fear, and with much trembling.Â 4My message and my preaching were not with persuasive words of wisdom, but with a demonstration of the Spiritâ€™s power,Â 5so that your faith would not rest on menâ€™s wisdom, but on Godâ€™s power.
Dear Fellow Page Turners,
Yesterday I took a step to face disabling fear and in my brokenness encouraged others struggling just as deeply.
We do not know who is on the edge of hopelessness. It is not in our achieving “Christian perfection” God uses us for the most glory of his kingdom. We become oaks of righteousness in our knee-knocking-obedience.Â
Be real with your faith. Be bold in obedience. Be open in your weakness.
