My Spiritual Resume

“But he (the Lord) said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” (2 Corinthians 12:9)

In our modern world it is common to write a resume. It might be to apply for a job or even as a volunteer. Our resumes highlight our accomplishments, skills, experiences and goals. I would say that it is expected that we should brag, at least a little, on a resume. I doubt that any HR professional would encourage us to list our weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions or difficulties. A resume is the place to highlight our strengths.

But for the Apostle Paul, it was his weaknesses that exalted Jesus. His goal was to show Jesus’ greatness. Paul had learned that Jesus’ grace was all he needed in life. In fact, his personal accomplishments were not all that important. He could be brutally honest, even about his weaknesses because he was all about Jesus, not himself.

We too can know such freedom. That same sufficient grace of Jesus can be ours. We do not need to pretend to be strong and self-sufficient. We can know Christ’s power when we, like Paul, see how much we need Jesus and ask Him to work in our lives, problems and all.

Question: Have I been afraid of weakness or have I discovered that they are the perfect place for Christ to work?

Challenge: Quit faking it and bring your failures and hardships to Jesus.

Prayer: Jesus, I put my life in Your hands, weaknesses and all.
