    SEV Biblia, Chapter 3:4

    Y tal confianza tenemos por el Cristo para con Dios;

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - 2 Corinthians 3:4

    Verse 4. Such
    trust have we] We have the fullest conviction that God has thus accredited our ministry; and that ye are thus converted unto him, and are monuments of his mercy, and proofs of the truth of our ministry.

    John Gill's Bible Commentary

    Ver. 4. And such
    trust have we , etc..] This refers to what he had said in the latter end of the foregoing chapter, and the beginning of this; as that they made manifest the savoury knowledge of God and Christ everywhere, and were the sweet savour of Christ to many souls; were sufficient in some measure, through the grace of Christ, to preach the Gospel sincerely and faithfully, and were attended with success, had many seals of their ministry, and particularly the Corinthians were so many living epistles of commendations of the power and efficacy of their ministry; such confidence and firm persuasion of the truth of grace on your souls, and of our being the happy instruments of it, we have through Christ , the grace of Christ, to God-ward : who is the object of our confidence and hope, and the ground thereof.

    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 1-11 - Even the
    appearance of self-praise and courting human applause, is painful to the humble and spiritual mind. Nothing is more delightful to faithful ministers, or more to their praise, than the success of their ministry, as shown in the spirits and lives of those among whom the labour. The law of Christ was written in their hearts, and the love of Christ shed abroad there. Nor was it written in tables of stone, as the law of God given to Moses, but on the fleshy (not fleshly, a fleshliness denotes sensuality) tables of the heart, Eze 36:26. Their hearts were humbled and softened to receive this impression, by the new-creating power of the Holy Spirit. He ascribes all the glory to God. And remember, as our whole dependence is upon the Lord, so the whole glory belongs to him alone. The letter killeth: the letter of the law is the ministration of death; and if we rest only in the letter of the gospel, we shall not be the better for so doing: but the Holy Spirit gives life spiritual, and life eternal. The Old Testamen dispensation was the ministration of death, but the New Testament of life. The law made known sin, and the wrath and curse of God; it showe us a God above us, and a God against us; but the gospel makes know grace, and Emmanuel, God with us. Therein the righteousness of God by faith is revealed; and this shows us that the just shall live by his faith; this makes known the grace and mercy of God through Jesu Christ, for obtaining the forgiveness of sins and eternal life. The gospel so much exceeds the law in glory, that it eclipses the glory of the legal dispensation. But even the New Testament will be a killin letter, if shown as a mere system or form, and without dependence of God the Holy Spirit, to give it a quickening power.

    Vincent's NT Word Studies

    4.
    Confidence. In the fact that he may appeal to them, notwithstanding their weaknesses and errors.

    Through Christ to God-ward (dia tou Cristou prov ton Qeon). Through Christ who engenders the confidence, toward God, with reference to God who gives us success, and to whom we must account for our work.


    Robertson's NT Word Studies

    3:4 {Through Christ} (dia tou cristou). It is not self-conceit on Paul's part, but through Christ.
