COMPETENCE with GOD

March 28, 2017

Monday

 

2 Corinthians 3:5

 

Not that we are adequate in ourselves to consider anything as coming from ourselves, but our adequacy is from God,

 

LESSON

 

Paul did not want his readers to confuse this “Spirit”-inspired confidence with the fleshly human confidence that comes from feeling adequate or self-sufficient. Our service is actually God working through us, rather than our serving Him. God is the One who makes us adequate servants. Paul was contrasting God-confidence with self-confidence.

 

Christianity is not the natural life lived on a higher plane. It is a divine life manifested in the energy of the Holy Spirit.

 

Memory Verse: Proverbs 22:6

 

Whenever you are asked if you can do a job, tell ’em, ‘Certainly I can!’ Then get busy and find out how to do it.”
