Here's a short sermon excerpt from Bro. Paul Washer. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-BcGgLbvM64 Thought he had some good points: -the amount of time spent in the word and prayer will show how weak we truly are. (iow, if we don't spend much time we are trusting in self) -we have to recognize how truly weak we are. -weakness should be a catalyst to spiritual power. -we are all weak, some use it as a an excuse for sin. -our weakness should drive us to God, our problem is we don’t recognize our need or we stay where we are at. -genuine Christians want to be something they are not yet, but we can’t just wait around, when we sin we have to run to God and believe his promises, believe we are out of condemnation, realize we are free!
