Devotional

Examine yourselves as to whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?—unless indeed you are disqualified.

– 2 Corinthians 13:5

In much the same way, the Apostle Peter wrote, “Brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure” (2 Peter 1:10). This is an important practice that every Christian should know well. And what are the benchmarks of faith that should be evident? Jesus said, “By this all will know that you are My disciples, if you have love for one another” (John 13:35). The fruit of the Spirit—or the evidence that God’s Spirit is in you—is love.

For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds,

– 2 Corinthians 10:4

In Ephesians 6, Paul alludes to the weapons of our warfare. There are, it seems, two of them. The sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God, and prayer. At first glance, they may appear to be insignificant. But they are “mighty in God for pulling down strongholds.” Don’t underestimate the power of God’s word and prayer.

So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.

– 2 Corinthians 9:7

If you are not able to give with the joy of a cheerful giver, then it begs the question of whether or not you truly comprehend the greatness of all that God has done for you in Christ. By His love He poured out the riches of His grace upon us in abundance. And when we begin to recognize that greatness of His grace, it compels us to give joyfully.

For godly sorrow produces repentance leading to salvation, not to be regretted; but the sorrow of the world produces death.

– 2 Corinthians 7:10

When God’s love and grace, demonstrated on the cross, move our hearts to sorrow, the result is confession and repentance. And when God sees a penitent heart, He moves toward it with more mercy, grace, forgiveness, and compassion.

And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will dwell in them And walk among them. I will be their God, And they shall be My people.”

– 2 Corinthians 6:16

The living God dwells in you, by His Holy Spirit. Since this is true, He desires that our lives (His temple) be purged of any and all things that would offed Him. Of course, none of us will every measure up to a standard of perfect holiness. But our aim ought to be Christlikeness.

We are confident, yes, well pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.

– 2 Corinthians 5:8

If you do not have the confidence, that to be absent from this earthly body, is to be present with the Lord, then you must turn to Christ in faith, trusting in His sacrificial work on the cross.

Devotional

But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them.

– 2 Corinthians 4:3-4

As a follower of Jesus, committed to His commission and Kingdom, we need to recognize that we are engaged in a very real spiritual battle. The enemy—the god of this age—is at work in the world. And “though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh.” We must therefore engage I this battle the mighty armor and weapons given us by God.
