The world ‘s way of thinking leading & accomplishing is like a giant magnet. This supermagnet is always switched on; it is always pulling you; it is always seeking to attract you away from God ‘s ways; it is relentless in pulling you away from Christ ‘s true north. I keep veering away and need to be continually realigned with God. I need 2 Cor 4:7 to realign me to Christ ‘s true north for three reasons:
I am prone to treat Christ & the gospel as ordinary
I am prone to think of myself as great
I am prone to limit God ‘s power.
I trust that we may find great joy in being realigned with the truth that God shows His glory most prominently through ordinary people just like us!
