It’s the best news I’ve heard all week…
Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God, (II Corinthians 3:5 NKJV)
“Our sufficiency is of God; let us practically enjoy this truth.
We are poor, leaking vessels, and the only way for us to keep full is to put our pitcher under the perpetual flow of boundless grace. Then, despite its leakage, the cup will always be full to the brim.” (Spurgeon)
I find so much comfort in this truth. I am definitely a poor, leaking vessel. We all are. That’s what sin has done to us.
we can try to apply band-aids, bandages, maybe some krazy glue… make-up and designer clothes… nice cars… Pretty houses.. education…
But in reality- still the same poor, leaking vessel.
and then because of Jesus-
I get the privilege of being “under the perpetual flow of boundless grace…despite its leakage, the cup will always be full to the brim.”
Bad news: We are sinners; we are broken.
Good (GREAT) news: boundless grace in Christ!
