Power Disguised in Weakness

by Chip Brogden

December 2

“The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit,
a broken and a contrite heart—these, O God, You will not despise.”
-PSALM 51:17

We must never seek the power of Pentecost without first tasting the suffering of the Cross. The Cross is Power disguised in Weakness. There is a saying, “Absolute power corrupts absolutely.” We can just as well say that spiritual power obtained apart from the weakness of the Cross will corrupt also.

This is why the Lord leads us first to Calvary, then on to Pentecost. We dare not bypass Calvary in our haste to experience Pentecost.
