Audrey Assad - New Every Morning ... ♪♫♪♫♪♫♪♫


In the beginning You hovered over the waters: 
You broke an unbroken silence: You spoke light into darkness
And there was light

In the beginning we were made in Your image
We were naked without shame til we fell for the darkness
And there was night

Your mercies are new
Your mercies are new
New every morning [x2]

In the beginning there was the Word and he was God
And the Word was with God and He dwelt among us 
And there was life

In the beginning the Lamb of God was broken
And His blood was poured out for the sins of the world 
And there was life

Your mercies are new
Your mercies are new
New every morning [x4]

At the cross, at the cross, where I first saw the light
At the cross, at the cross, I received my sight
At the cross, at the cross where You laid down Your life

Your mercies are new
Your mercies are new
New every morning [x4]

Jesus: Para Os Fracos # Jesus: For The Weak


O que significa ser fraco? A fraqueza a que Paulo se refere é mais do que apenas uma fraqueza física, mas uma fraqueza moral e emocional. No texto de hoje, Paulo está a falar sobre as nossas lutas e a nossa vulnerabilidade.

A pior coisa que os Cristãos podem fazer é parecer como se fossem muito fortes. Mesmo o Cristão mais forte tem fraquezas e lutas. Talvez seja uma luta moral com luxúria ou pornografia; talvez seja uma luta emocional oprimida pelo medo, ansiedade ou depressão. Se formos honestos, todos lutamos de uma forma ou de outra.

Paulo está a dizer que, ao reconhecer as nossas fraquezas, podemos apontar para Deus como a fonte da nossa força. Esta vulnerabilidade remove qualquer critica que alguém possa sentir devido às suas próprias dificuldades. Em vez disso, estás a ir ao encontra delas onde estão, como igual, mesmo que as tuas áreas específicas de fraqueza sejam diferentes. É nestes momentos de verdadeira e honesta vulnerabilidade que proporcionam oportunidades para partilhar como a força de Deus nos ajudou a ultrapassá-las.

Todos lutamos; a única diferença é que um seguidor de Jesus pode apegar-se à força sobrenatural de Deus quando o fazemos. É um dom que vem ao darmos os nossos corações e vidas a Jesus. Então, quando se trata das tuas fraquezas, estarás suficientemente vulnerável para admitires as tuas lutas? Porque é na nossa fraqueza que a força de Deus brilha. ESTA é a mensagem que queremos partilhar com aqueles que estão a lutar: Não é sobre mim, mas o que Deus faz comigo.

~ 1 Coríntios 9:22

What does it mean to be weak? The weakness Paul is referring to is more than just a physical weakness, but a moral and emotional weakness. In today's text, Paul is talking about our struggles and our vulnerability.

The very worst thing Christians can do is to appear as though they’ve got it all together. Even the strongest Christian has weaknesses and struggles. Maybe it’s a moral struggle with lust or pornography; maybe it’s an emotional struggle overwhelmed by fear, anxiety or depression. If we’re honest, we all struggle in one way or another.

Paul is saying that by acknowledging our weaknesses, we can point to God as the source of our strength. This vulnerability removes any judgement someone might feel due to their own struggles. Instead you are meeting them where they are, as an equal, even if your particular areas of weakness differ. It’s in those moments of honest, real, vulnerability that provide opportunities to share how God’s strength got us through.

We all struggle; the only difference is that a follower of Jesus can cling to God’s supernatural strength when we do. It’s a gift that comes with giving our hearts and lives to Jesus. So when it comes to your weaknesses, will you be vulnerable enough to admit your struggles? Because it’s in our weakness that God’s strength shines. THAT is the message we want to share to those who are struggling: It’s not about me, but what God does though me.

~ 1 Corinthians 9:22
