THE PARADOX OF POWER

THIS WEEK'S BIBLE LESSON on "Spirit" explores Christian healing from the standpoint of God's omnipotence and omnipresence.

Section III states, "Thine, O Lord, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty" (I Chron. 29:11, citation 6). Then, paradoxically, in the Lesson's Golden Text, Spirit's majesty comes "not by might, nor by power" (Zech. 4:6). The first sentence of the Responsive Reading—"I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ" (Eph. 3:14)—suggests a solution to the paradox. It's when we go on bended knees to God, in meekness and humility, that we gain true power.
