“You know that because of physical infirmity I preached the gospel to you at the first.”

 

You know that because of physical infirmity I preached the gospel to you at the first.

When Paul came to preach the gospel for the first time in Galatia, he came with physical illness. Paul did not come to Galatia with personal power or strength; he came with “physical infirmity,” depending on God’s grace.

Principle:

Handicaps help grace.

Application:

When we feel we have little means to preach the gospel, we must depend on the Lord’s provision. Handicaps help, not hinder, grace.

“And He said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong” (2 Corinthians 12:9-10).
