“Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim anything for ourselves, but our competence comes from God.” 2 Corinthians 3:5 (NIV)
God has blessed the United States with freedom through independence for many years. Today is the day citizens of the USA celebrate. Not all Christians enjoys the Independence we celebrate today. We are sharing again a verse we had just a few days ago. Words given to us by God through the writing of the Apostle Paul in a letter to the Corinthian Church. The truth in these words apply not only to preachers as Paul was. These words are for us too. Remember, that we all depend on God for every part of our living. We are not independent of God's help. We are dependent on Him for everything. Those of us in countries that still enjoy great freedom, and those of us in countries where to believe might mean death – we all get our competence from God. He is our source of true freedom. Let's not forget who truly gives us our freedom from sin and liberty to live for God.
