Insight from Paul

Insight from Paul 2 Corinthians 11:1-4 August 6, 2023 Pastor Park Robertson Flint Baptist Church of Flint, TX 2 Corinthians 11:1-4 11 Oh, that you would bear with me in a little folly—and indeed you do bear with me. 2 For I am jealous for you with godly jealousy. For I have betrothed you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ. 3 But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. 4 For if he who comes preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or if you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted—you may well put up with it! 5 For I consider that I am not at all inferior to the most eminent apostles. 6 Even though I am untrained in speech, yet I am not in knowledge. But we have been thoroughly manifested among you in all things. 7 Did I commit sin in humbling myself that you might be exalted, because I preached the gospel of God to you free of charge? 8 I robbed other churches, taking wages from them to minister to you. 9 And when I was present with you, and in need, I was a burden to no one, for what I lacked the brethren who came from Macedonia supplied. And in everything I kept myself from being burdensome to you, and so I will keep myself. - Paul’s Concerns Expressed Jealousy v2 Fear v3 Standards v3-4 Comparison v4-9 - Paul Counters With Love Love is having your very best at heart Love of and for God Love for the Corinthians/Fellow believers Love despite having weighed the cost - Paul Understands the Enemy Our Message We are a community of people committed to following Jesus, so we worship Him with vigor and joy.
