2 Corinthians 12:10
That is why, for Christ's sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions,in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
With Christformation in us, we can remain broken before the LORD all the time we spend on this Earth. If we call upon His name without Christformation in us, it would be very difficult to remain broken before Him. We will continue with arrogance from the sinful nature of the Devil in us. Remember, there will be no Christformation in our born again spirit if, we do not consciously put to death that sinful nature within us. We must put it to death on the cross of Christ provided for us. The Lord Jesus Christ provided us with that propitiation. He showed us the way. He is the way, the truth and the eternal life of God. Anyone who has Him filled in His born again spirit, will be filled with eternal life. What we sow with our lives, we will surely reap. If we sow with brokenness, we will reap Christformation. If we try to sow with the arrogance of the sinful nature of the Devil in us, we will reap destruction only. We can never fool God. We can fool men, but we can never fool the LORD. He knows it when we still obey the sinful nature of the Devil in us, while still outwardly professing the name of the LORD. He knows it when we deliberately choose to continue walking in the arrogance of the sinful nature of the Devil in us. Our mouths may say we don't, but our actions still show we do obey the sinful nature of the Devil in us. Where is our delight directed towards? Towards the things of the LORD or the things of this world? We cannot fool Him." I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in persecutions and in difficulties" says the apostle Paul who was filled with the Spirit of the LORD and who fought the good fight till the end. He pledged a good conscience towards Christ and all that He had commanded. He made a good confession of his faith before all men. He also fought a good fight of the faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. He never wavered in his faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.
2 Corinthians 4:7-12
But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed. We always carry around in our body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be revealed in our body. For we who are alive are always being given over to death for Jesus' sake, so that his life may be revealed in our mortal body. So then, death is at work in us, but life is at work in you.
