In this conversation, Michael and Dr. Guthrie discuss:
- Paul’s Christology
- The gift of being comforted, that we may comfort others
- The illuminating affect of growing in Christ
- Momentary suffering
- The Resurrection
- What it means that God’s power is perfected in our weakness
“At the end of the day, we’re limited. We are weak in the face of the dynamics of this universe. Realizing and embracing our limitations is a foundation-stone of true life in ministry. It gives us space to live in the grace of God, and find that the power of God is in that space of grace.“
