A Key Indicator of True Faith

July 25, 2021 Preacher: Rich Lanning Series: 2 Corinthians

Scripture: 2 Corinthians 7:5–7:16

A Key Indicator of True Faith
2 Corinthians 7:5-16
July 25, 2021
Pastor Rich Lanning




I.   Christian service often means suffering and discouragement.  2 Cor. 7:5


II.   God is a God of comfort.  2 Cor 7:6-7, 13-15



III.  A genuine sorrow for sin leads to repentance.  2 Cor. 7:8-12, 16



Questions for reflection:

  • How did God comfort and encourage the Apostle Paul in a time of distress?
  • Can you think of ways in which God has shown His goodness to you in times of pain and discouragement?
  • The Corinthians evidenced true faith by their repentance. Are there areas where repentance is warranted in your life?
