Reading God’s Word: 2 Corinthians 6:1-7:4, Psalm 116:1-8
Meditating on God’s Word: 2 Corinthian 6:3-10 (ESV) We put no obstacle in anyone’s way, so that no fault may be found with our ministry, but as servants of God we commend ourselves in every way: by great endurance, in afflictions, hardships, calamities, beatings, imprisonments, riots, labors, sleepless nights, hunger; by purity, knowledge, patience, kindness, the Holy Spirit, genuine love; by truthful speech, and the power of God; with the weapons of righteousness for the right hand and for the left; through honor and dishonor, through slander and praise. We are treated as impostors, and yet are true; as unknown, and yet well known; as dying, and behold, we live; as punished, and yet not killed; as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, yet possessing everything.
Memorizing God’s Word: 2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
Praying God’s Word: “Lord, reading this passage it is easy to see that Paul lived the adventure of becoming like Christ. I don’t know that I could handle it the way he did, but I want to live that adventure. I want to live a life that draws people to you. I want to stand firm in the face of adversity like Paul and be able to be content with my circumstance. Spirit help me live this adventure. Amen.”
