Not an end in itself

2 Corin 1;4

Comfort from God is not an end in itself.  It’s purpose is that believers also might be comforters.

Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for 2 Corinthians 1:4.

The Way Which Leads to Life

The Narrow Gate

The narrow gate is by faith, only through Christ, constricted and precise.  It represents true salvation in God’s way that leads to life eternal.

Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Matthew 7:13,14.

He built upon the rock

luke 6;48

The house represents a religious life; the rain represents divine judgement.  Only the one built on the foundation of obedience to God’s Word stands, which calls for repentance, rejection of salvation by works, and trust in God’s grace to save through His merciful provision.

Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Matthew 7:24-27.
