When we have a relationship with Jesus, He empowers us to serve Him in His name. It has been said that William Wilberforce (1759-1833) would not seem like much of a man of stature for those who knew him. He was under medical care for 20 years. for that reason, he had to take medicine to keep his health in stable standing. Though limited, he would not let his infirmities keep him from pursuing the end of the British slave trade. He accomplished that goal. Only one month after his death, the Emancipation Bill was passed and slave trading came to the end in the West Indies in 1833. James Boswell (1740-1795) who once went to hear him speak said afterwards: "I saw what seemed a mere shrimp mounted upon the platform, but as I listened, he grew and grew till the shrimp became a whale." (A. Naismith. 1200 Notes, Quotes and Anecdotes. Great Britain: Pickering Paperbacks, 1988, pp. 101-102). Jesus had made him strong in spite of his weakness.
