Bible Reading Challenge Week 16 Day 3

Our reading challenge for the day is 2 Corinthians 4-8. I’ll hit a few highlights. You make comments too and fill in the gaps. What strikes you as specially significant?

2 Corinthians 4 - We are clay jars - functional and good but not precious. It is because Jesus loves us and uses us for his glory that we gain value.

2 Corinthians 5 - See all the comparisons between temporary and permanent. Our lasting hope is in Jesus who is our reward. This is the new creation, being reconciled to God.

2 Corinthians 6 - As redeemed people we seek to live a life which is worthy of Christ - a ife of faith. Otherwise we live in vain.

2 Corinthians 7 - The Christian life is one of repentance leading to forgiveness and life. This is not the world’s view of regret or sorrow, which leads to death.

2 Corinthians 8 - In times of hardship and plenty we are people who give since Jesus gave himself for us. Some suggest chapter 8 verse 18 refers to Luke as the companion of Titus.
