“And He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.” -2 Corinthians 12:9-10
When it comes to the Christian life, admitting that you’re weak is not nearly as risky as pretending you’re strong. -Paul Tripp via Twitter
“Blessed are those who keep His testimonies, who seek Him with their whole heart, who also do no wrong, but walk in His ways!” -Psalm 119:2-3
The secret to freedom from enslaving patterns of sin is worship. You need worship. You need great worship. You need weeping worship. You need glorious worship. You need to sense God’s greatness and to be moved by it — moved by who God is and what He has done for you. -Tim Keller
“And Solomon went up there to the bronze altar before the LORD, which was at the tent of meeting, and offered a thousand burnt offerings on it.” -2 Chronicles 1:6
Solomon sought to worship God and had a choice of where he would do so. You also have a choice of where to go worship. How do you choose? Go where the Lord is and where He meets you. Make sure the Word is central. Go to a church that loves the Lord, loves people (both saints and lost), and seeks after God.
-Steve Wainright (excerpt from Sunday Evening Sermon from 2 Chronicles 1:1-17 — “Solomon’s Good Start“)
