God has reconciled all things on earth and in heaven;
so we preach Christ to all the world.
New Testament Reading - His Grace is Sufficient
9Each time he said, “No. But I am with you; that is all you need. My power shows up best in weak people.” Now I am glad to boast about how weak I am; I am glad to be a living demonstration of Christ’s power, instead of showing off my own power and abilities. 10Since I know it is all for Christ’s good, I am quite happy about “the thorn,” and about insults and hardships, persecutions and difficulties; for when I am weak, then I am strong — the less I have, the more I depend on him.. . . . . 2 Corinthians 12:9-10
