2 Corinthians 12:9-9 9) He has said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest on me.
2 Corinthians 11:30-33 30) If I must boast, I will boast of the things that concern my weakness. 31) The God and Father of the Lord Jesus, he who is blessed forevermore, knows that I don‘t lie. 32) In Damascus the governor under Aretas the king guarded the city of the Damascenes in order to take me. 33) Through a window I was let down in a basket by the wall, and escaped his hands.
2 Corinthians 12:1-10 1) It is doubtless not profitable for me to boast. I will come to visions and revelations of the Lord. 2) I know a man in Christ, fourteen years ago (whether in the body, I don‘t know, or whether out of the body, I don‘t know; God knows), such a one caught up into the third heaven. 3) I know such a man (whether in the body, or apart from the body, I don‘t know; God knows), 4) how he was caught up into Paradise, and heard unspeakable words, which it is not lawful for a man to utter. 5) On behalf of such a one I will boast, but on my own behalf I will not boast, except in my weaknesses. 6) For if I would desire to boast, I will not be foolish; for I will speak the truth. But I forbear, so that no man may account of me above that which he sees in me, or hears from me. 7) By reason of the exceeding greatness of the revelations, that I should not be exalted excessively, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, a messenger of Satan to buffet me, that I should not be exalted excessively. 8) Concerning this thing, I begged the Lord three times that it might depart from me. 9) He has said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my weaknesses, that the power of Christ may rest on me. 10) Therefore I take pleasure in weaknesses, in injuries, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ‘s sake. For when I am weak, then am I strong.
John 1:14-17 14) The Word became flesh, and lived among us. We saw his glory, such glory as of the only Son of the Father, full of grace and truth. 15) John testified about him. He cried out, saying, "This was he of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me has surpassed me, for he was before me.‘" 16) From his fullness we all received grace upon grace. 17) For the law was given through Moses. Grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.
