Powerless instruments

"Where there is weakness, my power is shown the more completely." 2 Corinthians 12:9, Phillips

"The power of Christ manifests to the full its irresistible energy and attains its highest results by performing works of power with powerless instruments."

Geoffrey Wilson, quoted in D. A. Carson, From Triumphalism to Maturity, pages 150-151.
