2 Corinthians 13:8 For we can do nothing against the truth, but for the truth.
The truth cannot be changed on the whim of a false accusation. All manner of lies were said about Jesus: the same will be said of you should you serve the Lord.
2 Corinthians 12:9 And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.
If you are suffering with a “thorn in the flesh” it is a time to glory. God intends to use your weakness so that you would rely wholly upon his grace demonstrating true spiritual strength.
2 Corinthians 11:13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.
False apostles seek to destroy churches subtly by beguiling the saints into receiving heretical doctrine. We are to be cautious on who we allow to teach and influence our church.
2 Corinthians 9:6 But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully.
Giving financially to a needful cause is one thing, but HOW you give is just as important. The Lord is the one who provides your finances and also supplies your every need.
2 Corinthians 7:10 For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.
Thank God for the second epistle to the Corinthians; without it one could think the Corinthian church was without hope. The church was humbled into godly sorrow which led them to repentance.
2 Corinthians 6:16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
Our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit to be used by the Lord for his service and work. This should drive us to seperate ourselves from wicked and worldly associations in order to maintain a close walk with God.
2 Corinthians 5:20 Now then we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God did beseech you by us: we pray you in Christ’s stead, be ye reconciled to God.
We are ambassadors for Christ to bring reconciliation between God and sinful man. Therefore we need to be mindful that our life is to represent our eternal home in the kingdom of heaven.
2 Corinthians 4:6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
God has given us the glorious gospel and the light of knowledge to shine in this world of darkness. The hope for our nation is the gospel, your choice is to either help the blind to see or to hide the gospel to those who are lost.
