There are two enemies of our christian walk, one is boasting the other is belittling. Boasting is an evidence that we are pleased with self; belittling, that we are disappointed in it. Either way we reveal that we have a high opinion of ourselves.
The sermon could be award winning of the New York times version but if it only bloats our ego (strength) and amplify the weaknesses of others, we have not done any noble work.
The sole purpose of strength (financial, moral, professional, marital, sexual, intellectual etc) isn’t to preach but BEAR. God measures strength by what we bear. CHRIST’s strength went all time high when he bore the sin of the whole world, no honour greater.
If your strength in any capacity is not bearing anybody up, you are actually weak! To show your strength, Bear weakness, bear burdens, bear fruits!
So, while we boast or belittle ourselves we may be perfectly sure that the cross has not yet done its perfect work within us.
What will you bear this week?
