2 Corinthians 13:14: The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Spirit be with you all. Amen.
The Corinthian believers then, and all believers now, desperately needed the blessings of grace, love, and communion. The competition in the Corinthian church, resulting in divisions, would have been solved if the people had only lived by God’s grace and love. The church is a miracle, and it can be sustained only by the miracle ministry of God. No amount of human skill, talents, or programs can make the church what it ought to be. Only God can do that. If each believer is depending on the grace of God, walking in the love of God, and participating in the fellowship of the Spirit, not walking in the flesh, then he will be a part of the answer and not a part of the problem. He will be living this benediction—and being a benediction to others! Ask God to make you that kind of Christian. Be encouraged—and then encourage others. 1
- Our personal application begins tomorrow morning as we will receive our new daily devotion called: “To Become Like Him.”
Together, we will journey through the Gospels, studying the life and ministry of Jesus Christ, in chronological order. The results of these daily devotional Bible studies will make us stronger in faith and in the Word of God, more in love with our Savior and Lord Jesus Christ, and a more fruitful servant, and a gracious witness, to our family and friends.
