Lent 2017: Power in Weakness

IMG_0616

You taught humility
In the face of defeat,
God-become-man on a Palestine street.
You had the power to end it
There and then,
To throw away the last ditch plan
Yet you went ahead,
You took the strife
To give us everlasting life.

Having power and not using it
Is a strength that confounds me,
Laying down your life for free,
A noble, humble sacrifice,
God-became-man, hung on a cross,
Man’s gain, heaven’s loss.
Crucifixion the only plan:
Humility and grace packaged as one
Power in weakness for everyone.

2 Corinthians 12:9 ‘My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.’
