How wonderful are your ways O Lord

"God chose things despised by the world, things counted as nothing at all, and used them to bring to nothing what the world considers important.  As a result, no one can ever boast in the presence of God."
(1 Corinthians 1:28-29 NLT)

“My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ can work through me.
(2 Corinthians 12:9 NLT)

Be Doers of the Word
