The power of weakness

Adoration_of_the_shepherds_reni
The omnipotence of God

is shown in the fact
that he can assume
the form of human
impotence and
can triumph
in this form.

The gospel story line

maxresdefault

Out of the cross comes the resurrection.
Out of weakness comes real strength.
Out of repentance and admitting
you are weak comes real power.
Out of giving away and serving others
comes real strength.
Out of generosity and giving
your money away comes real wealth.
That’s the gospel story line.

–Tim Keller
