CHRISTIAN SUFFERING BIBLE STUDY TRUTH
BIBLICAL SUFFERING BIBLE VERSES QUEST
Many happy greetings to
you, and welcome back to Daily Bread. Today we're
starting a new study of the second letter of Paul to the
Some dishonest people had been spreading
ugly rumors about Paul, and he addresses these
accusations in this letter. He also has some praise for
the Corinthians in part of this letter as well, so
without any further ado, let's open our second letter
from Paul to the Corinthians.
From: Paul, an Apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of
and Timothy our
To: The church of God
which is in Corinth,
with all the saints
which are in all Achaia (see
be to you and peace from God our Father,
and from the Lord
As always, Paul gives praise to God at
the beginning of his letter.
CHRISTIAN SUFFERING BIBLE STUDY LESSON
BIBLICAL SUFFERING BIBLE VERSES PATH
Blessed be God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
the Father of mercies,
and the God of all comfort;
who comforts us in all our tribulation,
that we may be able to comfort others who experience trouble,
by the comfort that we ourselves receive from God.
Because, as the sufferings of Christ are present in us,
our comfort also comes from Christ.
And whether we're distressed or comforted,
it is for your comfort and salvation.
What Paul is saying, is that whenever tribulations come
his way, or whenever comfort comes his way, all
believers prosper from it, because remember from the
first letter to the Corinthians, we are all one, and we
share in everything.
Put yourself in his shoes.
Sometimes it's easier to understand things from a
different point of view. If you were Paul, and you
understood that through your suffering, you would bring
comfort to all other believers, you would (as Paul did),
welcome any tribulations and count them as gain for
Christ and for His sheep.
We have strong hope for you,
knowing, that as you take part in the sufferings,
you will also take part in the comfort.
CHRISTIAN SUFFERING BIBLE STUDY FACTS
BIBLICAL SUFFERING BIBLE VERSES JOURNEY
We want you to know about the trouble that happened to us in Asia,
that we were burdened beyond measure,
so much even that we lost hope even of life.
(There were many times Paul faced trouble
in Asia, so we don't know which time or times he is
talking about in this particular instance.)
But we had this attitude, that we shouldn't trust in ourselves,
but in God who raises the dead:
Who delivered us from so great a death, and does deliver:
in whom we trust that He will still deliver us.
You also helping together by praying for us,
that for the gift bestowed upon us
(the ministry of delivering the Gospel)
by the efforts of many people
thanks may be given by many,
for our service to the Lord.
From the next thing Paul writes, it's
apparent that his credibility has been questioned by
CHRISTIAN SUFFERING BIBLE STUDY WARNING
BIBLICAL SUFFERING BIBLE VERSES CONCERN
For our joy is this, we can honestly say,
that in innocence and godly sincerity,
not with fleshly wisdom,
but by the Grace of God,
we have conducted ourselves in the world,
and even more so, toward you.
We don't write anything to you that you can't read or understand,
and I trust you will understand completely,
just as you have understood us in part,
that we are your joy, just as you also are ours
in the day of the Lord Jesus.
And believing this, I wanted to visit you twice,
that you might have double the benefit;
to visit on our way into Macedonia,
and to stop in again on our way out of Macedonia,
and then for you to send me on my way toward Judea.
It seems next that some folks were also accusing Paul of
being wishy washy, or apt to change his mind about
things. These things of course were lies, and Paul sets
As you know from reading the book of Acts, there were
events during his missionary journeys that would
certainly cause changes in itinerary for Paul, but these
things were out of his control. Even though he certainly
was determined to visit certain places at certain times,
he had to depart early from places several times to
protect his life.
CHRISTIAN SUFFERING BIBLE STUDY DANGER
BIBLICAL SUFFERING BIBLE VERSES GIFT
Remember when Jesus said that your conversation should be yea, yea or nay nay
Paul assures the Corinthians that he is level headed,
and that he didn't tell them he would visit and then
carelessly change his mind.
When I wanted to visit, didn't I seem serious?
Or do you think that the things I plan,
I plan according to the flesh (instead of led by the Spirit)
that with me there should be yea yea, and nay nay?
But as God is Faithful, our word toward you was not yea and nay.
For the Son of God, Jesus Christ,
who was preached among you by us,
by me and Silvanus and Timotheus,
was not yea and nay, but in Him was yea.
Paul wants them to know that he is serious about
everything that has to do with God business, not only
his missionary visits.
For all the promises of God in Jesus are yea (true),
and in Him Amen (positively),
for the glory of God by us.
Now He who strengthens us with you in Christ,
and has anointed us, is God;
who has also sealed us,
and has put the
Holy Spirit in our hearts.
CHRISTIAN SUFFERING BIBLE STUDY DISCUSSION
BIBLICAL SUFFERING BIBLE VERSES EXPLAINED
Sometimes people have to make choices on their own, in
order to become stronger and more independent of other
people. Perhaps this is what Paul meant by these next
Whether Paul was detoured from his original
travel plans, or advised by the Holy Spirit not to go to
Corinth again just yet, maybe they needed some time to
strengthen their faith before he visited.
He didn't want
them to believe in the Gospel that he preached because
he wanted dominion over them, he wanted them to choose
themselves to believe in God, in Jesus, in the Holy
Spirit, and in the Gospel that he delivered to them.
When you stop and think about this, don't you feel more
joy inside, if you make a right choice instead of
someone else encouraging you to do it?
In addition, as God is my witness,
that to spare (to be lenient or easy on) you,
I haven't come to Corinth yet.
Not because we rule over your Faith,
but are helpers of your joy: because by Faith you stand.
