Tweeting Through 2 Corinthians

Introduction: 2 Corinthians is the Apostle Paul's second epistle (letter) to the carnal church of Corinth. Within it, Paul defends his apostleship against accusations of its illegitimacy by so-called super apostles who were attempting to undermine his spiritual authority and leadership of the Corinthian Christians.

2 Corinthians 1:18-20 — All the covenant promises God ever made are fulfilled in Christ.

2 Corinthians 1:19-20 — Jesus Christ, as the Living Word of God, came into this world to fulfill every promise God has ever made.

2 Corinthians 4:3-6 — Before the Spirit moves and God commands light, both God’s works and Word remain meaningless and empty. (see also Genesis 1:2-3)

2 Corinthians 4:17 — Our temporal earthly trials are preparing us for our eternal heavenly reward, in the light of which all earthly troubles are trivialized.


2 Corinthians 4:18 — Every Christian needs x-ray vision so that he or she can see through the physical, visible, temporal surface of things into the spiritual, invisible, and eternal substance of things.


2 Corinthians 5:1-5 — God has not only miraculously wrought us, all born-again believers, to swallow up our earthly mortal bodies with immortal heavenly ones, but has ensured us of it by giving to us the earnest of His indwelling Spirit.


2 Corinthians 5:15 — The cross is a big I with a minus mark through it, since Jesus died on it to save us from living for ourselves.

2 Corinthians 5:18 — The grave is but a passage way for the Christian into the presence of God.

2 Corinthians 5:21 — Christ, who knew no sin, bore our sin and became our sin on the cross, so that sinners like us might become righteous before God.

2 Corinthians 7:9-10 — Repentance is neither remorse, reform, nor religion. It's a lifelong turning from sin with a broken heart and to Christ with all of your heart, which results in you getting further and further away from sin each day and closer and closer to Christ each day.

2 Corinthians 10:12 — For us to compare ourselves with anyone else besides Christ is to unwisely judge ourselves by an imperfect standard.

2 Corinthians 12:6 — No saint should be a self-promoter, but depend on the evidence of the indwelling Holy Spirit in their lives to serve as their personal press agent.
