2 Corinthians 13:7-14
Before I can Take a Road Trip: Planning must happen!
“We pray to God that you will not do what is wrong by refusing our correction. I hope we won’t need to demonstrate our authority when we arrive. Do the right thing before we come—even if that makes it look like we have failed to demonstrate our authority”. 2 Corinthians 13:7
- Reality is Defined
“Dear brothers and sisters, I close my letter with these last words: Be joyful. Grow to maturity. Encourage each other. Live in harmony and peace. Then the God of love and peace will be with you. Greet each other with Christian love. 2 Corinthians 13:11-12
- A Vision is Cast.
“May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all. It’s here we discover that Paul was from the South when he refers to the church as “You All”. 2 Corinthians 13:14
- The Victory is Placed in the Hands of Christ, God and the Holy Spirit.
“I am writing to God’s church in Corinth, to you who have been called by God to be his own holy people. He made you holy by means of Christ Jesus, just as he did for all people everywhere who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, their Lord and ours.” 1 Corinthians 1:2.
