“The Weakness of God”


“The weakness of God” – this is, indeed, a captivating phrase penned by the apostle Paul in his letter to the Church. (1 Corinthians 1:25)  This “weakness” is God’s chosen “methodology” from “before the foundation of the world – in “the Lamb slain”, in His choice of Israel and Gideon’s company, in the cross of Christ. The Lord revealed to the apostle Paul that He DWELLS in our weakness. And, since the Church is the DWELLING PLACE of God, the Church is supposed to be “weak” – in contrast to the “the rulers, the powers, the world forces of this darkness, the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places”. It is the wisdom and the power of God for each individual follower of Christ, and the very calling of the Church – namely, to make known (demonstrate) this wisdom to “the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places”. The pre-requisite to be numbered among “this people being formed by the Lord” is “MEEKNESS”.
