I’ve seen two recent blog posts that mention our weakness:
I learned something about weakness on our trip as well. Missionaries (neither short term nor long term) should not be placed on pedestals. Neither should pastors, evangelists, elders, or other church leaders. Any work is a work of God, and God will and can work through any of his children.
But, and here’s the connection to weakness, God will work through those who are weak in themselves. And, he works as we are obedient… not before. When we know that we can’t do something, and we begin to obey anyway, that’s when God strengthens us and works through us.
