How hard it is to receive that the work of God, and of His Christ, is always in weakness! The rulers of the people saw in Peter and John unlearned and ignorant men.
The thorn in the flesh made Paul despised, and he conceived it would be better if that were gone.
It is God’s rule of action, if we may so say, to choose weak things. Everything must rest on God’s power; otherwise God’s work cannot be done according to His mind. For the work of God, we must be weak, that the strength may be of God; and this work will last when all the earth shall be moved away.
