Paul's Primer on Affliction
2 Corinthians 1:3-11
January 24, 2021
Pastor Rich Lanning

 

Introduction:

 

I.   Affliction can prepare and teach us how to comfort others. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4.

 

II.  To suffer in faith is to share in the sufferings of Christ. 2 Corinthians 1:5.

 

III. Our affliction can be of benefit to God's Kingdom. 2 Corinthians 1:6.

 

IV.  Suffering taught Paul to trust in the God who specializes in resurrection.
      2 Corinthians 1:8-10.

 

Questions for reflection:

  • What does Paul say are some of the positive outcomes of affliction?
  • In what ways has God comforted you in a time of affliction?
  • How might you turn around and use that comfort from God to encourage someone else?
