Our sufficiency is of God

2 Cor 3:4-6
And such trust have we through Christ to God-ward: Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God; 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.

2 Cor 9:8
And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work:

We are created in God's image to act and function like him. In so doing he has put his spirit in us...the spirit of grace.
He supplies us with abundance of graces so to tap into to be sufficently supplied for our endeavors.

But He giveth more grace..Jas 4:6

2 connotations in the greek rendering worth noting for our sufficiency

Our Sufficiency ..gk..hikanotes...ability...competent...fit...content...worthy...sufficiency is of God.

Our Sufficiency ...gk..autarkeia..contentedness...selfsatisfaction...contentment...competence...sufficiency

Our ..hikanotes...sufficiency is receive from Jesus to have ..autarkeia...competence to perform our duties on the pathways of life.

Our competence..autarkeia..is from abiding with and in the word without which we can do nothing..Jn 15:1-8

Grow our sufficiency by letting the word dwell in you richly to have supremacy our you then and then you can ask what you will and will be granted or made for you. Jn 15:1-8

In other words
...hikanotes..is received and ..autarkeia..is giving what is received.

He has made us:
1. able ministers of the new testament
To annouce the good news of the kingdom of God
To minister one to another the love of God
To reconcile many by the shed blood
To deliver and set captives free to walk out of their bondages and yokes
To annouce the acceptable year.. now ye must be born anew
To preach and teach the word

2. to abound unto every good work.

And our sufficiency is of God. Made us competent for all endeavors in Jesus name

Amen!!
