THE PARADOXICAL ROUTE

"Jesus is the One who shows us the paradoxical route to meaning in a chaotic and hostile world. It's the paradox of the gospel: Strength is found in weakness. Control is found in dependency. Power is found in surrender..God uses the frustrations of this life and the hurt of relationships to compel us to look beyond what we can control to the God who controls all things in order to woo us to himself. As we move from control to surrender, we move from chasing the wind under the sun to embracing God above it."
