And we have such trust through Christ toward God. Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God, who made us sufficient as ministers of the new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.
2 Corinthians 3:4-6 NKJV
What do we call a computer that becomes self aware and tries to take over the world? A sci-fi nightmare (a highly unlikely one, though).
But isn’t that sort of what we’re doing when we reject God? Deviating from the purpose we were created for, like a rogue robot?
But here we call it independence, power, agenda, individualism, and we exalt it with monuments.
Why do we so often prize creation over the creator? I mean it, when did this flaw first come about? Why do we prize objects over eternal souls, food over flesh, idols over El Shaddai?
And again I ask: why?
Our sufficiency is from God. It is nothing we did. Our peace doesn’t come from treaties. Our peace of mind doesn’t come from insurance. Our nourishment doesn’t come from bread. Our strength doesn’t come from muscle or power or the human spirit. It all begins, it all ends with God, whether we like it or not.
I am sufficient as a minister of God. Lord, let me do the one thing I was created to do: worship Your name.
