2 Corinthians 3:5-6

Not that we are competent of ourselves to claim anything as coming from us; our competence is from God, who has made us competent to be ministers of a new covenant, not of letter but of spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.

    You know those days where you have a problem that’s been pressing on your heart, and then you visit your favorite blog and see a Bible verse that speaks to that problem directly?

    Today just became one of those days. Thank you, Fred. I try not to read the Bible as a handbook you turn to in order to gain health, wealth, and happiness, but 2 Corinthians 3:5-6 just graced me with abundant peace.
