2 Corinthians 12:9-11
And He has said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ’s sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong. I have become foolish; you yourselves compelled me.
When I have depleted all my inner resources,
When I am weak physically, emotionally and mentally,
then the Spirit has a chance to work through me.
Even though I feel ineffective
The Holy Spirit rises up from my deepest self
in strength and power.
When I am no longer strong enough to get in His way
When simply BEING is all I can do
He does is free to shine through me.
This is Presence Evangelism.
It is like lighting a candle in a dark room and simply letting the flame conquer the darkness
