As explained above, the Epistle lesson (2 Cor 5:6-17) was not selected for its thematic congruence with the other two readings.
It is for us to "scatter seed" (Mk 4:26) and to "try to persuade others" (2 Cor 5:11) of the good news of the new creation in Christ, but it is God who gives the growth (1 Cor 3:6f.).
So it is not surprising that Paul gives his doxologies to God (Rom 11:36) or that all of his berakoth ("Blessed be ...," 2 Cor 1:3-4, Rom 1:25 at the end) are of God.
In 2 Cor 2:14 he describes God as "leading us in triumphal procession in Christ, and making evident in every place the redolence of his knowledge." Paul is either soldier or slave in this procession led by God, while the smell of God's sacrifice, a segment of the triumphal procession that permeates the Roman world in Paul's day, is a metaphor for knowing God.
