Muscles are overrated! Seriously, how many hours at the gym, money spent, and protein shakes do we need in order to feel secure?! We invest in our bodies to build a façade that won’t hold up under spiritual pressure.
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. Corinthians 12:9-10
This is the goal right here. Not just to look strong, but in humility to recognize how weak we really are so that we can put on His strength. In our admission of weakness, we can be strong in and with Christ.
