Bible Reading Challenge Week 16 Day 4

Our reading challenge for the day is 2 Corinthians 9-13. I’ll hit a few highlights. You make comments too and fill in the gaps. What strikes you as specially significant?

2 Corinthians 9 - Our giving is based on the way God gives to his people. It is not a matter of Law but of Gospel.

2 Corinthians 10 - We have spiritual gifts with divine power to fight spiritual wars. Taking thoughts captive to Christ is the goal of spiritual warfare.

2 Corinthians 11 - Paul has worked among the Corinthians at no cost to them, but it is customary to care for those who bring us the Gospel. See how Paul boasts in his weakness rather than in strength. It is God who is strong.

2 Corinthians 12 - God’s grace to Paul is shown as Paul is weak and suffering. We are not alone in suffering. Jesus knows it all.

2 Corinthians 13 - How do we examine ourselves to see if we are in the faith? Not by our works but by our attitude of repentent trust.
