Saturday May 7, 2022 “What Do you Put Up With”

2 Corinthians 11:20 “20 For you put up with it if one brings you into bondage, if one devours you, if one takes from you, if one exalts himself, if one strikes you on the face.” One would think that being treated as Paul describes people would not put up with people that do such wicked things to their fellow man. … Continue reading

Friday May 6, 2022 “Wise Men”

2 Corinthians 11:19 “19 For you put up with fools gladly, since you yourselves are wise!” Paul strikes back with truth concerning those in church who were supposedly “wise.” It was evident that those who were so “wise” get put up with foolish people who came in to hurt and scatter the sheep were so easily deceived. Pray that … Continue reading

Wednesday May 4 2022 “Fruit Inspectors”

2 Corinthians 11:14-15 “14 And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.” Satan has his “ministers” who know enough and do enough to deceive the Bible-illiterate Christian, but in the end, they … Continue reading

Tuesday May 3, 2022 “False Leaders”

2 Corinthians 11:13-14 “13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. 14 And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light.”   Paul exposed false prophets who acted like they were God’s servants.

Monday May 2, 2022 “The Truth in Love”

2 Corinthians 11:11-12 “11 Why? Because I do not love you?

2 Corinthians 11:9-10 “9 And when I was present with you, and in need, I was a burden to no one, for what I lacked the brethren who came from Macedonia supplied.

2 Corinthians 11:7-8 “7 Did I commit sin in [a]humbling myself that you might be exalted, because I preached the gospel of God to you free of charge? 8 I robbed other churches, taking wages from them to minister to you.” Paul seems very conscious about using finances correctly. It seems in Corinth there were people who did not understand financial responsibility. … Continue reading

Friday April 29, 2022 “Humble Approach”

2 Corinthians 11:7 “7 Did I commit sin in [a]humbling myself that you might be exalted, because I preached the gospel of God to you free of charge?” The Apostle took the “high road” of humility when dealing with some of the people in the Corinthians Church. Our church and government leaders must do the same but we … Continue reading
