“They are weak, but He is strong.”
Remember singing “Jesus Loves Me” when you were a kid? Whenever I hear this song, I think of a group of little children singing the words at the top of their lungs– sometimes out of tune– just because their hearts are so proud and filled with Jesus’ love that they can’t help themselves.
How fitting. More to the point: when you are dealing with weakness in your life, how easy is it to be depressed and sad? How easy is it for you to shake your fist at God and ask, “Why are you doing this to me?” How easy is it for you to try to take care of the issue without the help of God through prayer, his Word, or Christian friends who just want to help?
When we sing that line from “Jesus Loves Me,” that says “They are weak, but He is strong,” it ought to remind us that in weakness– spiritual or otherwise- we need to rely on God. He channels his strength into us through his holy Word.
This weekend in our worship, we will see how God’s strength is seen in our weakness– to his glory, and for our good. We’d love to have you join us!
