…sufficient grace. I don’t seek to be weak but realize that I am weak and in my weakness, let the sufficiency of God’s grace be my strength. When I seek to be weak in order to be called strong I am unable to rely on God’s sufficient grace and indeed be made strong.
I am consistently faced with this question: upon whom do I rest and draw strength? My own self and actions or God’s gracious work within my soul, opening me and shaping me to become a new human being, a resurrected person yearning for the resurrection itself and placing a resurrection way of life into lifestyle expression.
This new way, new lifestyle is passive yet active. It is passive in that I am affected to live a new life. It is active in that I am the one living and expressing this God-life that has been and is being breathed into me.
