3 We put no obstruction in anybody’s way [we give no offense in anything], so that no fault may be found and [our] ministry blamed and discredited.
Therefore, since these [great] promises are ours, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from everything that contaminates and defiles body and spirit, and bring [our] consecration to completeness in the [reverential] fear of God. 2 Corinthians 7:1 AMP
4 We have this kind of confidence toward God through Christ. 5 It is not that we are competent in[a] ourselves to consider anything as coming from ourselves, but our competence is from God. 2 Corinthians 3:4-5
