Wednesday - WOD for God

The reality of my weakness hit me this past week as I recovered from a brutal WOD. I had to rest extra long and take time off. Even as I type this, I am reminded of how sore I am. My whole body throbs and aches. This pain, though not tragic or life altering, is a good reminder that I am weak, not just physically but also in every other way.

But there is hope for my weakness. This is not an eternal condition. I am not locked into this weakness. It doesn't define me and it doesn't rule me. Jesus came to become weak for me. He took on frail human flesh and lived in this world of sin. Completely perfect, he faced all the temptations I face but never sinned. He felt the weight of weakness that comes with humanity but always obeyed. He trusted his Father, relied on the strength of the Spirit, and bore the weight of my sin on the cross.

Jesus was made weak so that we could be made strong.

Be strong today.... in body, mind, and spirit.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life
