J.I. Packer has a new book coming out on the topic of weakness, Weakness Is The Way: Life with Christ our Strength
Weakness is the Way by J. I. Packer from Crossway on Vimeo.
An interesting book to see the announcement for today, a day when once more I find myself as do so many others caught in the throes of weakness and impotence in the face of evil. Looking forward to this one.
So to keep me from becoming conceited because of the surpassing greatness of the revelations, a thorn was given me in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to harass me, to keep me from becoming conceited. Three times I pleaded with the Lord about this, that it should leave me. 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 of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong. (2 Corinthians 12:7-10)
