Today’s Reading: Job 31:1‐33:33, 2 Corinthians 3:1‐18, Psalm 43:1‐5, Proverbs 22:8‐9
2 Corinthians 3:5-6 – Not that we are sufficient in ourselves to claim anything as coming from us, but our sufficiency is from God, who has made us competent to be ministers of a new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit. For the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.
Context: Paul is arguing that through the new covenant, established by Christ, we have a ministry that is greater than Moses.
- We are not sufficient in ourselves
- We cannot claim anything as coming from us
- Our sufficiency comes from God
- God has made us competent to be ministers of a new covenant
- Not of the letter (law)
- but of the Spirit
- For the letter kills
- But the Spirit gives life
Are you entering today living in your current reality? The Spirit has given you a more glorious ministry than Moses.
Apply: I want to walk with an unveiled face today, being a minister of life through the Spirit. Specifically, I want to behold the glory of the Lord and let him shine through me. I want to let God show others himself through my countenance and words.
What gives you the confidence in the sufficiency that God has given you to be a minister of the new covenant?
