For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

– 2 Corinthians 5:21

Chapter five of 2 Corinthians is a treasure-trove of weighty verses; such is verse 21. Jesus became sin for me. He who knew no sin, though He was tempted in all points like as we are, took your sin and mine upon Himself. He bore the weight and punishment for our sin that we might receive His righteousness.

On the cross, God treated Jesus as if He had lived our sinful lives, so that when we stand before Him He can treat us as if we lived His life.

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.

– 2 Corinthians 4:7

In 2 Corinthians 3 we are confronted with the reality of our insufficiency, apart from Christ. Here we are presented with our total sufficiency with God, in Christ. The treasure of His glory, power and every other divine attribute resides in us, as we are the temple of the Spirit of God. As the Apostle Peter would write, we are partakers of the Divine Nature. His power is with and in us. Never forget, because of this, one, with God, is a majority.

Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think of anything as being from ourselves, but our sufficiency is from God, who also made us sufficient as ministers of the new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.

– 2 Corinthians 3:5-6

You will never reach the apex of your usefulness to Christ and His kingdom until you recognize and acknowledge your insufficiency and dependence upon Him for strength, power and ability. We are completely insufficient in and of ourselves. Our ability to minister the Gospel is purely of God power at work in us.
