verse 4: “For indeed He was crucified because of weakness, yet He lives because of the power of God. For we also are weak in Him, yet we shall live with Him because of the power of God directed toward you.”

Think on these statements:

“He was crucified because of weakness”…Jesus took all the sins of the world, our sins, upon Him on that cross. Do you think for one second He couldn’t have come down from that cross and said “Forget it!”??? He could have…but that’s how much He loved and loves us.

“yet He lives because of the power of God”….yes, Jesus died on that cross, the perfect sacrifice. Yes, God raised Him back to life. It’s because He lives that we have the promise of eternal life in Heaven.

He was not weak, as we see weakness. He willingly became weak by taking on the sins of the world. When we become weak to Him…when we throw away all the pride and ego and sin that we, as humans live in, and submit to His authority….then we are living in the power of God.

Let me be clear: submission is not weakness, as we define weakness. To our proud, independent, haughty minds, submission may seem like weakness. But it’s God way, not your way! The best decision you can ever make is to strongly submit to God and accept Jesus as Lord and Savior. Now you’re talking about power-living!

Have a blessed day!
