2 Corinthians 12:9 says “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Paul reminds us that in our weakness we can still glorify God. Sometimes our human responsibility is to be humble in the light of God’s provision.
Galatians chapter 5 gives us a good barometer for measuring our hearts and our actions. When we move through our faith walk, this is a great place to check in with God. Human responsibility includes being accountable for our actions.
Divine Sovereignty and Human Responsibility
Where does God’s part leave off and my part pick up and vice versa? Does God even need me to do anything for His kingdom here on earth? After all, He’s GOD! Study with us as we explore these questions and some answers from the Bible.
We open with the core scripture for this study, Esther 4:12-16. We love Esther’s final words in this exchange, ‘If I perish, I perish.’ As you open this study with us, pray that God will help us all accomplish that level of faith!
