4 This is the confidence that we have through Christ in the presence of God. 5 It isn’t that we ourselves are qualified to claim that anything came from us. No, our qualification is from God. 6 He has qualified us as ministers of a new covenant, not based on what is written but on the Spirit, because what is written kills, but the Spirit gives life. 7 The ministry that brought death was carved in letters on stone tablets. It came with such glory that the Israelites couldn’t look for long at Moses’ face because his face was shining with glory, even though it was a fading glory. 8 Won’t the ministry of the Spirit be much more glorious? 9 If the ministry that brought condemnation has glory, how much more glorious is the ministry that brings righteousness? 10 In fact, what was glorious isn’t glorious now, because of the glory that is brighter. 11 If the glory that fades away was glorious, how much more glorious is the one that lasts! (2 Corinthians 3:4-11, CEB)
We are not qualified because of what we have done. We do not rise and fall by our own merits in the eyes of God. We can not pull ourselves up by our own boot straps in God’s kingdom. We are only qualified in God’s eyes because of Christ.
So do not think to highly of yourself, but live in the goodness of God and all God has done for you.
God will work through you in glory to show love to all of the world.
Love People, Love God.
