Weak Made Strong

About this series

 

So many of our choices are driven by our desire to gain strength and avoid weakness. We seek money, intelligence, popularity and power to secure our strength. However, strength and weakness aren’t always at the opposite end of the spectrum. Maybe we don’t have to secure our power, knowledge and resources to be strong. Maybe through God, we have another way to be confident, strong and flourish in life. We must learn not to rely on our own strength, but in the strength of God and in the community he has given us. It’s not about moving from weak to strong, it’s about God helping us become strong IN our weakness.

About this message

Like many of our own stories, the Biblical story of Jacob began with struggle. He grows up always trying to live up to his brother, seeking any power and privilege he can gain. Like Jacob, when we don’t feel loved as we are, we pretend to be someone we’re not. Many of us have gotten really good at pretending to be someone we’re not. We pretend because we don’t want to feel week, so we put on a mask and build a façade. But with Jesus, we don’t have to pretend anymore. With Jesus, we can stop pretending to be strong and finally admit our weakness, so that we can allow God to work in our lives authentically.
