Finding Strength in Our Weakness


Finding Strength in Our Weakness

Priest Clement
“But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” – 2 Corinthians 12:9

Dear brothers and sisters, today I wish to speak about something that many of us grapple with in our daily lives: weakness. At face value, it seems a burden, something that hinders us from reaching our full potential. Yet, in the divine perspective, our weakness becomes an opportunity, a chance to open ourselves to the transformative power of God’s grace.

We often hide our weaknesses, fearing judgment and shame. But remember, our Lord God created us as we are, full of strengths, yet with weaknesses too. Our Savior, Jesus Christ, was not unfamiliar with weakness. He was human, felt pain, sorrow, and fear, but He trusted in the Father’s plan.

In the Apostle Paul’s message to the Corinthians, he relished the chance to boast in his weaknesses, knowing that it was through them that the power of Christ would shine most brightly. This is a radical teaching, one that upends our worldly understanding of strength and weakness.

Embracing our weakness does not mean accepting defeat. Instead, it’s recognizing our need for God’s grace, and in doing so, we invite the Almighty to work within us, transforming our weaknesses into testimonies of His greatness.

Closing Prayer

Heavenly Father, we come before You today, in all our frailty and imperfection. We are not without our flaws, and we acknowledge our weaknesses. Yet, in You, we find strength. Your grace, O Lord, is indeed sufficient for us. Help us to surrender our weaknesses to You, confident in the promise that Your power is made perfect in our weakness. May we testify to Your greatness through our transformed lives. In the name of Your Son, Jesus Christ, we pray, Amen.
