2 Corinthians 3

Text: Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim anything for ourselves, but our competence comes from God. 2 Cor 3:5

Learn and Apply: There might be times when people wonder why you feel you are qualified to teach others the gospel. They know your past, the errors of your youth, and wonder where the competence comes from. They want to know your motivation, your qualification, the secret of your confidence.

But Paul tells us the secret of his competence – it is not in ourselves, not in our skills nor our fine graces, but it is based on God’s grace; our confidence comes from God. It is God who has called and qualified us, and has made us ministers among the brethren (1 Tim. 1:12-15).

Let us therefore not be weary in well doing. Let us go out with full assurance of faith, knowing that we have the backing of God and heaven, and let us do the work of an evangelist with all faithfulness. And God who has promised to confirm our word will not let us down in Jesus name.

Pray: Father, thank you for your mercies and loving kindness towards me. Thank you for choosing me and using me to spread the Good News. Empower me to be a good messenger in Jesus name.
