Sufficient


And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me.  II Corinthians 12:9 NASB

The truth is, Jesus never needed anything from me.

In the very beginning, all creation was created through Jesus.

After facing a terrible scourging, Jesus carried His cross to Golgotha where He spent several agonizing hours on that cross.  He took on all of our sin and faced the complete wrath of God over it. Jesus descended into Hell to release the prisoners.  He took the keys of Hell and Death from Satan.  After doing all that, He raised Himself from the dead, just to prove to all of creation that He has power over life and death.

Jesus did all this on His own.

If I genuinely want to be like Him, there is not one whit I can bring to Him.  By His grace, and through my weakness, all I have to do is get out of His way, and let Him empower me to be Just like Him.
