Today’s Reading: Job 37:1‐39:30, 2 Corinthians 4:13‐5:10, Psalm 44:9‐26, Proverbs 22:13
2 Corinthians 5:9 So whether we are at home or away, we make it our aim to please him.
Context: The Corinthian church is going through trails and their outward body (home) is wasting away. Yet, they are courageous, knowing their eternal (away) body is being renewed day by day and will be rewarded.
- Whether we are at home or away
- We make it our aim
- To please him
Note: It is impossible to please God without living by faith (2 Corinthians 5:7 Hebrews 11:6).
Apply: In a season of decisions, I want my aim to be clear – to please him. I want to spend time talking with Rebecca about what pleasing God tangibly looks like in our lives right now.
What can warn you that you are working to please yourself and not to please God?
