Where Christ shows his gracious power

Richard Sibbes, in The Bruised Reed:

“When blindness and boldness, ignorance and arrogance, weakness and willfulness, meet together in men,

it renders them odious to God, burdensome in society, dangerous in their counsels, disturbers of better purposes, intractable and incapable of better direction, miserable in the issue.

Where Christ shows his gracious power in weakness, he does it by letting men understand themselves so far as to breed humility, and magnify God’s love such as they are.”
