July 31, Day 213 - 2 Corinthians 10

Click here to go to 2 Corinthians 10

This is a hard chapter for me. Nothing is jumping out tonight.  The key verse would be the last one:
18 When people commend themselves, it doesn’t count for much. The important thing is for the Lord to commend them.



  1. 17 As the Scriptures say, “If you want to boast, boast only about the Lord.”

    Yes. It is so easy to get self-centered and get caught up in the good thing I have done. But, I never could have done those on my own. I think, after rambling on a bit in this chapter, Paul finally gets to that conclusion. Sometimes, his letters remind me more of a journal - like, he is really sorting things out for himself.

  2. 2 Corinthians 10
    4-6 The weapons of the war we're fighting are not of this world but are powered by God and effective at tearing down the strongholds erected against His truth. We are demolishing arguments and ideas, every high-and-mighty philosophy that pits itself against the knowledge of the one true God. We are taking prisoners of every thought, every emotion, and subduing them into obedience to the Anointed One. As soon as you choose obedience, we stand ready to punish every act of disobedience.

    15-16a We carefully put limits on our boasting and avoid taking credit for what others do. But we do hope to see your faith grow so that we can watch our mission really expand all the way to the limits God has set for us. The plan includes taking the good news to people and lands beyond you.

    Jeremiah 9:23-24, “This is what the Lord says: Let not the wise man boast of his wisdom or the strong man boast of his strength or the rich man boast of his riches, but let him who boasts boast about this: that he understands and knows me, that I am the Lord, who exercises kindness, justice and righteousness on earth, for in these I delight,” declares the Lord.”
