2 Corinthians 2:16 KJV
To the one we are the savour of death unto death; and to the other the savour of life unto life. And who is sufficient for these things?
Who is sufficient for these things?
The apostle is glorying in the triumph of the ministry. He says they are unto God a sweet savour in Christ to both the saved and the lost.
• To one they are a savour of death unto death.
• To the other they are a savour of life unto life.
He said they were not like the many that corrupt the Word of God but preach it with sincerity.
But then he also recognizes that none of this could be true in the power of self. No one would be sufficient for these things. We must necessarily seek the Lord because we are of ourselves insufficient.
May we always and forever remember that! God uses us, even amazingly.
But it is God and not ourselves.
