I’ve often looked at my faults and wondered if God can use somebody as imperfect as me. Then I read scripture like this one, written by Paul (who used to be Saul), and I remember that God is in the redemption business. He can and does use tarnished vessels for His glory. None of us can do anything of lasting value on our own strength, but through His strength? That’s a completely different story. In God’s mercy He empowers us to glorify Him in our words and deeds. I am so thankful for His strength and presence. In my weakness, HE is strong.
