Good Morning Girls. As mentioned, I used the SOAP method of Bible study.
For the third chapter of 2 Corinthians, I chose a different verse than the one suggested for this day, which was verse 17: "Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty."
Instead, I chose 2 Corinthians 3:5 --
S= "Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think anything as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God."
(2 Corinthians 3:5)
O= A cross-reference for "that we are sufficient of ourselves" is John 15:5 -- "For without Me ye can do nothing." We are not to think anything of ourselves, for truly all that we are and have comes from Him.
Our sufficiency is of God and not ourselves. Another cross-reference is 1 Corinthians 15:10 -- "But by the grace of God I am what I am; and His grace which was bestowed upon me was not in vain ... but the grace of God which was with me."
A= I truly can do nothing in and of myself. Only by God's grace and by the empowering of His Spirit can I do anything that will matter for Him. I need to seriously recognize that without Him, I can do nothing. I can't take credit for anything that I do. My sufficiency is of Him, and all glory must go to Him.
P= "Lord, I am so thankful for all that You do for me, and for the sufficiency that I have in You. Help me to never forget that all that I am, all that I have, and anything I am able to do comes from You and must be done to Your glory. I praise You for these truths, in Jesus' name, Amen."
