Reading: Ezk 2:2-5

A spirit came upon me as he spoke and kept me standing; and then I heard him speak, ” Son of Man, I am sending you to the Israelites, to a people who have rebelled against me; they and their fathers have sinned against me to this day. Now I am sending you to these defiant and stubborn people to tell them ‘this is the Lord Yahweh’s word.’

“So, whether they listen or not, this set of rebels will know there is a prophet among them.”

Reading: 2 Cor12:7-10

However, I better give up lest somebody think more of me than what is seen in me or hear from me. Lest I become proud after so many and extraordinary revelations, I was given o thorn in my flesh, a true messenger of Satan, to slap me in the face. Three times I prayed to the Lord that it leave me, but he answered, ‘My grace is revealed in weakness.”

Glad, then, will I boast of my weakness that the strength of Christ may be mine. So I rejoice when I suffer infirmities, humiliations, want persecutions: all for Christ! For when I am weak, then I am strong.
