When Can I Boast?

2 Corinthians 12: 9-10

And He said to me (Apostle Paul),
“My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.  Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” **



Paul told the believers in Romans 8:6-11

For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace. For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God’s law; indeed, it cannot.  Those who are in the flesh cannot please God. You, however, are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if in fact the Spirit of God dwells in you. Anyone who does not have the Spirit of Christ does not belong to him.  But if Christ is in you, although the body is dead because of sin, the Spirit is life because of righteousness.  If the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, he who raised Christ Jesus from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through his Spirit who dwells in you. (esv)

I thank my Father in heaven for His amazing promises!  The promised Messiah, Jesus Christ who was/is the only One able to bear “sin” for the world, to redeem us from the penalty of an eternity without God and thus reconcile us to the Father through Him.  Only one requirement ” You personally accept the atoning blood of the Lamb of God as yours, by faith in Him (Jesus Christ) and repent of your sins before a Holy God.

Then and only then do we have a new life in Christ with all the promises of hope, joy, peace, eternal life with God and our Father’s sanctification.  Read and study God’s Word–pray always–share the Gospel of salvation through Jesus Christ–love others. 

** When I am weak –then I am strong!  Only because of the gift of God .May all of you be blessed … ♥Streim


There is joy, hope and peace in knowing the Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. Everyday is a new day to share the the glorious Gospel message of grace and forgiveness; the blessings of hope; the Father God's eternal promises; and the importance of living daily in the will of God according to the Scriptures, especially now with the world in chaos and uncertainty. My life before I repented of all my sin, was washed clean by the blood of the Lamb of God-- Jesus Christ and was born again; was one of utter selfishness in every aspects of my life. I lived for ME and only me! Now I live for my Lord and soon coming King, rejoicing daily. I earnestly desire to share the message of the Gospel, encourage sisters/brothers in Christ by fervent prayer and studying the Holy Scriptures more each day.
