Following the Follower II: Staying Steady in Hard Times

The largest biographical passage we have the Apostle Paul is found in 2 Corinthians. We are spending several weeks discussing this extended passage in our newest series, Following the Follower. Today we hone in on 2 Corinthians 2:12-13.

In these short verses, John and Chuck discuss some pictures of reality that held Paul steady in times of great trial and distress. The first is the great procession with Christ at the head. The second is the aroma God is spreading throughout the world. Third is the reaction from the world we can expect and prepare for. And lastly, there is a picture of a man doing gospel work as unto the Lord and not for worldly gain.

We pray these realities would be so present in our lives that at moments of deep distress, pain, confusion, and angst, we can see Christ and press on holiness in Him.
