2 Corinthians—We Have This Treasure…                       July 29/30, 2017

“Living in Hardship”

2 Corinthians 6

 

We put no stumbling block in anyone’s path, so that our ministry will not be discredited.”                    2 Corinthians 6:3 (NIV)

 

Rather, as servants of God we commend ourselves in every way: in great endurance; in troubles, hardships and distresses; in beatings, imprisonments and riots; in hard work, sleepless nights and hunger;”   2 Corinthians 6:4-5 (NIV)

When you are going through hardships in life, what helps you endure, and keep the faith?

“Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.”  James 1:12 (NIV)

 

ACTION POINTS:

 

  1. Honor CHRIST in all you do
  2. Don’t run away from ADVERSITY—that struggle builds your character
  3. Hang in there until you OVERCOME!
