2 Corinthians 13:11 – Closing Thoughts to Corinth

Today’s Reading: Isaiah 12:1‐14:32, 2 Corinthians 13:1‐14, Psalm 57:1‐11, Proverbs 23:9‐11

Context: Ending the letter, Paul urges obedience to demonstrate true faith and then gives this charge.

2 Corinthians 13:11 – Finally, brothers, rejoice. Aim for restoration, comfort one another, agree with one another, live in peace; and the God of love and peace will be with you.

Observations:

  • Rejoice
  • Aim for restoration
  • Comfort one another
  • Agree with one another
  • Live in peace
    • And the God of love and peace will be with you.

What a cool benediction for a community of believers.  I want to write this verse on the walls of our new men’s dorm.

Apply:  As I live today, I want to be defined by the first instruction – rejoice.  Specifically, as my wife and daughter wake this morning, I want to great them with joy.

Which one of these instructions do you need to apply to your life today?
