Strength through Weakness

This weekend I’m scheduled to preach at Blanchard Road Church in Warrenville, a message on how to appropriate divine strength through our human weakness. While preparing, I came across this recently filmed testimony by JI Packer. Having had the privilege of meeting Dr. Packer on several occasions over the years, I find his testimony to be forceful precisely because his words match his life. Thank God for mentors such as he.
