Wednesday’s “Worth Looking At” Article

May 26, 2010

Pastor Ray Ortlund:

“The Spirit helps us in our weakness.”  (Romans 8:26)

Last week at the meetings of The Gospel Coalition, one of the men pointed out that Romans 8:26 does not say, “The Spirit helps us in our weaknesses” but singular “weakness.”  Our problem is not just weaknesses.  More profoundly, our problem is weakness.  Weakness is not just one more experience alongside our other experiences; weakness is the platform on which we have all our experiences. . . .

Please read the whole article (very short) at http://thegospelcoalition.org/blogs/rayortlund/2010/05/25/weakness/. While written by a pastor to pastors, the principle of building others up can be taken up by us all and will do vastly more than a single sermon will do.
