Recovery in the Bible (RIB)

The Paradox of Powerlessness
He was crucified through weakness, yet He liveth by the power of God (2 Corinthians 13:4).

In nature we see that all the grandest forces are best expressed through the frailest mediums. The awful energy known as electricity works most effectually through slender wires. The mighty magnetic stream is revealed in the trembling needle. Thought is not located in an organ like a man’s fist, all bone and muscle; its chosen seat is the delicate brain, and it best acts through fairy cells and attenuated films compared with which the gossamer is coarse. Life does not reside in the massive skeleton, but pulses along the silver cord of alarming delicacy.
