Getting Results During A Suffering Season
"A few days before completing this course I visited my auto mechanic for a minor repair. Shortly after parking, a reckless lorry driver smashed into it.! I was completely upset because he tried to cover up the incident by not reporting himself. We had to trail through 4 hours of videotape to identify the culprit.
Whilst mauling over the situation I directed my thoughts to Romans 8 and considered that this will work together for my good somehow. At the time of writing, I have been blessed with a wonderful replacement car newer than mine and beautiful to behold. Amidst the seemingly unfortunate incident, God orchestrated a new type of enjoyment for me".
So it is with the 2nd letter to the Corinthians. Although the tone and text reflect Paul’s angry defense of his apostleship to those who should have appreciated him; many divine revelations are fervently embedded in this letter.
Working through the hands of Paul, the greatest Communicator the Holy Spirit has released some life-changing truths to us.
For example, it is here we receive the most comprehensive teaching on "How To Give" in the New Testament. Let’s remember lessons that expound many of the Old Testaments teachings from Genesis and Exodus. There are other thought-provoking and invaluable topics covering:
The New Creation
All in all, this results in a life-transforming portion of Scripture that I hope you find deserving to be studied just as I discovered. The lessons are to be applied to our everyday existence if we are to access the power locked up in these words.
