Jesus enters into our places of sorrowful weakness and makes them places of His strength. (Luke 22:39-46)Mark Bernthal, March 24, 2019
Part of the Lent series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
Sermon: LUKE 22:39-46
Jesus enters into our places of
sorrowful weakness and makes them places of His strength.
I: Jesus struggles in prayer to do the will of His Father.
II: God’s love is stronger than our weakness and, because of the death of Jesus for the forgiveness of our sins, in our weakness is God’s strength.
