Getting a Grip on 2 Corinthians

June 11, 2009

Getting a grip on the truths of 2 Corinthians is like trying to hold a toddler who doesn’t want to be held.  If the fussy munchkin wants to escape our grasp, he will squirm, twist, become stiff as a board, or (the funniest to me) go limp as if his skeletal system was suddenly removed.  Such moments call for tenacity on the part of the parent.

Second Corinthians is about the paradoxical pathway of comfort through suffering, glory through insufficiency, life through death, riches through generosity, and strength through weakness.  These truths are hard to hold, like the resistant toddler.  Tenacious faith will be required if we are to get a good grip on these truths and, ultimately, to discover that these truths have gotten a good grip on us.

Our study of 2 Corinthians begins on Wendesday nights at 6:15 p.m. in the sanctuary.  Join us if you can.
