Spiritual Strength For Each Day

“For though he was crucified through weakness, yet he liveth by the power of God” (2 Corinthians 13:4).

Jesus is also called the Lamb of God to reveal the nature of His victory, for the victory of Jesus is a victory of the Lamb. He won it completely apart from all human efforts, for “He was crucified through weakness.” This is why these words are so mighty in their divine contradiction, “Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world!”  The weakest thing of all did the greatest thing of all! We see just how weak Jesus was on His way to Calvary when He collapsed under the burden of His cross. But when He hung on the cross before the amazed and trembling invisible powers of the world, the greatest revelation of power of all times began: the Lamb of God carried away the sins of the world! What power enabled the weak Lamb to bear all the sins of the world? Here is the answer: the world-embracing love of God was behind Him. It does not say, “Behold the Lamb,” but “Behold the Lamb of God”! The Lamb is capable, through the power of the love of God, to accomplish what is eternally valid: to carry away the guilt and sin of all men. Those who follow the Lamb will experience the same thing: in the greatest weakness He accomplishes the most difficult.  In this light the Word of the Bible, “My strength is made perfect in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9) gains greatest significance.
