II Corinthians 3:1-14
Key Verse: Verse 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."
Key Words: Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament
The word enable means “to equip with both the power and ability to carry out our task.” Praise God for His enablement; if not, I would surely fail.
It’s interesting to note that our enablement comes through the Lord—not the Law.
It’s also interesting to see how many believers want success to come through rules and regulations. It will never happen; only the Lord brings success.
Many Christians react to the Law by trying to work hard to obey all of the laws and do all of the right things. They are like the circus entertainer that spins plates. They put each plate on a stick and try to keep them moving, working hard to keep all plates spinning and in balance.
Just like the entertainer, Christians run all over the place trying to do the right things and keep all of the key areas of the Christian life spinning. They spin the ”religion plates” of going to church, reading their Bible, and giving tithes, and it wears them out.
They are reverting back to a standard that the Bible says will kill you. “The letter killeth" (II Corinthians 3:6). The Law will kill because sin will go crazy when it is faced with the divine standards of God.
What to do:
✞ Let the Lord be your enabler.
