Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 04/03/11

This week’s scripture is from 2 Corinthians:

But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”      (2 Cor. 12:9)

When the world comes hard against us and our lives are plagued by misfortune, grief, sickness, sin, or temptation our weaknesses are evident, our strength fails us. Though we are saved by God’s grace, we live in a fallen world, but the Lord extends His grace to us, and His grace is powerful and strong. Our strength comes through Christ alone, for there is no other who stands for us against the enemy of our souls. At His name and in His name we are strong, for it is in His name that we live and move and have our being. Thank you, great Lord, that your grace is sufficient.

May grace and peace be to you from God our Father and our Lord Jesus Christ.
