People love power. Whether it is the power of a position or the power of influence, we love to be in control. In relationship with other people, we want to be the stronger, the more capable, the leader. We’d rather be the wealthier, the one with greater possessions, the attractive one.
And sometimes God takes away what we love.
Why? That’s the focus of this passage, and of this sermon. Listen to how God reverses our fortune to make us desperate for the One who is truly valuable.
