Bible Study: 2 Corinthians 10
Here are a few verses that stuck out to me after reading through it:
Verses 4-5: 4for the (I)weapons of our warfare are not of the flesh, but divinely powerful (J)for the destruction of fortresses. We are destroying speculations and every (K)lofty thing raised up against the knowledge of God, and we are taking every thought captive to the (L)obedience of Christ,
It seems to me that in this verse Paul is talking about how with the church of believers, people were actively and boldly assaulting the “fortresses” of earthly wisdom. This is something in America that believers need to be more activing in doing, while maintaining a proper attitude and motivation. Unfortunatly, some blievers have taken it upon themselves to be bold to the point of overstepping thier bounds and are lacking in love and grace when spreading the gospel. Hoevever, I feel there are vastly more that are not being bold enough when the opportunity arieses
2 Corinthians 10
Paul Describes Himself
3For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war (H)according to the flesh,
6and we are ready to punish all disobedience, whenever (M)your obedience is complete.
7(N)You are looking at things as they are outwardly (O)If anyone is confident in himself that he is Christ’s, let him consider this again within himself, that just as he is Christ’s, (P)so also are we.
9for I do not wish to seem as if I would terrify you by my letters.
11Let such a person consider this, that what we are in word by letters when absent, such persons we are also in deed when present.
12For we are not bold to class or compare ourselves with some of those who (U)commend themselves; but when they measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves with themselves, they are without understanding.
17But (AG)HE WHO BOASTS IS TO BOAST IN THE LORD.
