Weakness and the Gospel

How do you respond when you are weak — maybe it was your sin, maybe it was someone else’s sin against you, but your humanity is being demonstrated in bold colors for all to see through your situation.

Pastor Erik Raymond addresses that very question through a meditation on the life of Adonijah:

But what do you do when weakness and apprehension show themselves through circumstances?

I know what I often do. I like to retreat into problem solving mode. Too often I worry. Other times I pity myself. Still other times I criticize others. Most often I forget.

What do I forget?

1. I forget the Sovereignty of God.

2. I forget the Goodness of God.

3. I forget the Gospel of God.

Read the entire post at Ordinary Pastor.  It really is well worth the investment of 3-5 minutes of your time today.
