2 Corinthians 12:2-10 Discover the Power of God’s Grace in Weakness.

Core Message:

In a world that values strength, success, and self-reliance, it’s easy to forget the power of weakness. Yet, in 2 Corinthians 12:2-10, the apostle Paul reminds us that weakness can be a powerful tool in the hands of God. In this passage, Paul describes a personal struggle that he faced, a “thorn in the flesh” that he pleaded with God to remove. But God’s response surprised Paul: “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9).

What does it mean for God’s power to be made perfect in weakness? 2 Corinthians 12:2-10 Discover the Power of God’s Grace in Weakness. How can we find strength and hope in our struggles and weaknesses? In this study of 2 Corinthians 12:2-10, we will explore these questions and more, as we dive into the rich truths of God’s Word. Through this passage, we will discover that our weakness is not a hindrance to God’s plans, but rather an opportunity for His grace to shine through. So, let us embrace our weakness and trust in the sufficiency of God’s grace today.

Opening Prayer:

O God, sustain us in the complexity of our humanity
as you sustained David–
playing the harp of youth,
throwing stones at giant problems,
loving our friends beyond wisdom,
dancing worship, mourning children,
breaking our hearts in psalms, and
longing for warmth in our old bones. Amen.

Scripture: 2 Corinthians 12:2-10

I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven. Whether it was in the body or out of the body I do not know—God knows. And I know that this man—whether in the body or apart from the body I do not know, but God knows— was caught up to paradise and heard inexpressible things, things that no one is permitted to tell. I will boast about a man like that, but I will not boast about myself, except about my weaknesses. Even if I should choose to boast, I would not be a fool, because I would be speaking the truth. But I refrain, so no one will think more of me than is warranted by what I do or say, or because of these surpassingly great revelations. Therefore, to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from 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 about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. 10 That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
