Word Filled Wednesday

This is my first Word Filled Wednesday :)
I chose 2 Corinthians 3:5 this week which says: "Not that we are adequate in ourselves to consider anything as coming from ourselves, but our adequacy is from God..."
I read something amazing last night in a Nelson Bible and wanted to share it here:
One of the great tenets of Scripture is the claim that Jesus Christ is completely sufficient for all matters of life and godliness (2Pe1:3-4)! He is sufficient for creation (Col 1:16, 17), salvation (Heb 10:10-12), sanctification (Eph 5:26, 27), and glorification (Ro 8:30). So pure is He that there is no blemish, stain, spot of sin, defilement, lying, deception, corruption, error, or imperfection (1Pe 1:18-20).


  1. Amen! And welcome to Word-Filled Wednesday! I hope you'll continue to join us. Happy early WFW and I'm praying you have a wonderfully Merry Christmas!

  2. Love that verse. It struck something in me but I am not sure what. I think I will meditate on it this week.
    Merry Christmas.

  3. Welcome to WFW! Our "adequacy" is from God. What a thing to ponder. Not that it comes from God, but the fact that I have never considered it good enough to be adequate.

  4. Thank you for participating! Have a Merry Christmas.

  5. Welcome to WFW, I enjoyed your verse and picture.

  6. Excellent verse...thanks for bringing it to our attention.
    Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones.

  7. Wonderful words.

    May you have a blessed Christmas!

  8. Amen, and welcome to WFW! I hope you'll continue to participate. I loved the photo and Scripture.

  9. Hi! I see this is from December. It's an awesome WFW post, and I"m glad I found it. Our adequacy does come from God, and it is not good for us to put ourselves down too much, because we are actually not trusting God.


Thank you for your comments <3
