(KJV.) II CORINTHIANS 3:5-6
(5) Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God.
(6) Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.
HIS GRACE AND UNFAILING LOVE!
Brethren, as humans, we are not able bodies of ourselves, our spiritual and physical capabilities to function on earth are by the grace of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior: case in point: spiritually, spirits of our Father within our mortal bodies, are our life resources, without his spirits, we are nothing but remains dust of the ground; physically, his providential race established since creation is what sustains our physical attributes to live healthy lives; many times, we take the grace of our Father for granted on earth; no one knows exactly how blessed and highly favored we are, unless the Holy Spirits reveals into our understandings the truthfulness of matters regarding how higher and deeper the love of our Father bestowed upon his children; that because of his love, he goes above and beyond his goodness and mercies, to make his children comfortable to dwell on earth; after creation, he blessed humanity, refer to the book of Genesis 1:28; saying, ....Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth."; this is unmerited favor that no one prayed for to be given; from creation, even before Jesus was born, til the present time; we live by the grace of our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Believers or unbelievers, grace is available to all humanity: for instance, (i) when Adam and Eve disobeyed our Father in the Garden of Eden, they realised for the first time that they were naked, by our Father's grace and love, he made coasts of skin, and clothe their nakedness, (Genesis 3:21); though he cast them out of the garden of Eden forever, he allowed them the grace to live on earth: (ii) by his grace and love, our Father saved Noah and his household before destruction of the earth with flood waters, (Genesis 7): he will never suffer his beloved ones to perish forever. (iii) by his grace and love, our Father saved Lot, his wife and two daughters, from destruction of Sodom and Gomorrah with hail stones of fire. (Genesis 19); and by the same grace and love, our Father gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life. (John 3:16); therefore, nothing is done by our own human imaginations, but that of our Father, he provides adequate powers, wisdoms, gifts, talents, equips his servants to meet their obligations, be responsible outstanding personalities in the world of darkness.
We enjoy grace everyday; both the rich and the poor, we are blessed: especially when we are able to wake up in the mornings daily, without bodily aches and pains, but are able to move our mortal bodies around and are able to function in daily responsibilities, what else is more important than a healthy life, with or without riches of this world?; this a point to ponder on!; do not get me wrong money is important as well, but what are our lifetime benefits, without Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior?
Therefore, let us count ourselves as blessed and highly favored; be happy, content and thankful to our Father on daily basis; regardless of how we look at present situations; spiritually or physically, our resources are from our Father, given through the spirits; therefore, when we are successful on earth, let us walk in humility, be respectful, not boastful, but give him the glory; be content in any type of situation; if negative situations, know that all things work together for good for those who love our Father and are called according to his purposes; rejoice always with thanksgivings that it is already done by the grace of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Amen!
Dearly beloved, we are blessed chosen ministers of the new testament; not appointed by men, but by the appointment of the Holy Spirit; for if we are appointed by dictates of rules and regulations; we are condemned if we ever fail to honor our parts of the deal; however, that is not our cases, for we are chosen of Jesus Christ, by the resurrection power of the Holy Spirits, made preachers of the gospel truth; therefore, whatever we preach, are not from our own human perspectives, but from the Holy Spirit, and we all know that with the Holy Spirit, there is everlasting life; therefore, let us not shut up or shut in by the enemy, but rather preach the gospel, at all costs, in all circumstances; for, we are called to be able ministers, we have an office established on earth, to sanctify hearts of souls with truthfulness of his words and enlighten their pathways from world of darkness into life forever and evermore. Amen and Amen!
