Mighty Men?

4 11 2011

We have a big conference held in South Africa every year called the ‘Mighty Men Conference’, where a great number of men gather together for a time of fellowship and meetings. I didn’t give the name of this conference any thought until today as I read this following verse:

Gal 2:7-8 KJV  (7)  But contrariwise, when they saw that the gospel of the uncircumcision was committed unto me, as the gospel of the circumcision was unto Peter;  (8)  (For he that wrought effectually in Peter to the apostleship of the circumcision, the same was mighty in me toward the Gentiles:)

Did you notice what the verse said? It says that God works in Paul mightily. It does not say that Paul was mighty and that he did all these amazing wonders and works through his own amazing ministry! It says that God in him was the mighty One doing the works!!!

In the light of this, maybe the organizers should call the conference, “Mighty God in men”, next year? Our focus should be on ‘God in men’ and not on ‘men with God’. Big difference don’t you think???

Php 2:13 KJV & Col 1:29 KJV
