Our Strength & Sufficiency

For you say, I am rich; I have prospered and grown wealthy, and I am in need of nothing; and you do not realize and understand that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked. Therefore I counsel you to purchase from Me gold refined and tested by fire, that you may be [truly] wealthy, and white clothes to clothe you and to keep the shame of your nudity from being seen, and salve to put on your eyes, that you may see. Those whom I [dearly and tenderly] love, I tell their faults and convict and convince and reprove and chasten [I discipline and instruct them]. Rev 3:17-20

Don’t be mistaken; in and of ourselves we know we have little to offer, but any competence or value we have comes from God.  Let our strength and sufficiency be in the Lord our God alone, and not in ourselves. 2Cor 3:5
