2 Cor 10: Obedience in Word and Deed
It always amazes me when I see myself, as Paul describes it. He says in chapter 10 that we are disobedient to the heavenly light, and we do it when we do not bring our thoughts in obedience to Christ. He writes: “we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” [2Cor 10:5] This verse was my “go to” verse at a very hard time when I was not obeying, and it caught me and straightened me out! Further on, Paul tells us why: ” what we are in word by letters when absent, such persons we are also in deed when present.” [2 Cor 10:11] In other words, Paul says to be consistent in word and deed!
How about you?
