The Believer’s Conduct in the World (A Study of 2 Corinthians 1:12-14)

14 May

Friends: If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you know that my friend Frank (in New Jersey) and I have been doing an email Bible study for over a year. We read the same chapter every day for a week — and then send a brief email of encouragement to each other. We’ve completed most of the epistles of the New Testament — and it’s been a great discipline for both of us.

We’re now working our way through 2 Corinthians. Here’s my outline for several verses in chapter one:

The Believer’s Conduct in the World
(A Study of 2 Corinthians 1:12-14)

1. Our behavior ought to be something to be proud of (v. 12).

2. Our behavior ought to be confirmed by our consciences (v. 12).

3. Our behavior among other believers is critical (v. 12)

>> “with integrity and godly sincerity”

4. We are not to rely on worldly wisdom but on God’s grace (v. 12).

5. We want to be clear in what we communicate with other believers (v. 13).

6. We want other believers to be able to boast of us in the day of the Lord Jesus (v. 14).

Today’s Challenge: Are you and I behaving ourselves in the world? The world is watching us!
