2 Corinthians

Pliable


The Lord doesn’t reward rebellion or wrongdoing, but He blesses those who repent and embrace chastisement as a tool for growth (Proverbs 28:13). So make it your goal to be a pliable student in the Lord’s hands, and thank Him for using your failures to benefit you while bringing Him glory.

A Faithful Influence

2 Corin 2;15

Wherever God’s servant is faithful and is an influence for the gospel, God is pleased.  There is a twofold effect of gospel preaching.  To some, the message brings eternal life and ultimate glorification.  To others, it is a stumbling stone of offense that brings eternal death.

Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for 2 Corinthians 2:15,16.
