Godly Sorrow! (A Study of 2 Corinthians 7:8-13)

27 Jun

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.

Let us continue our study of several verses in chapter seven:

Godly Sorrow! (A Study of 2 Corinthians 7:8-13)

“Never apologize! It’s a sign of weakness,” says Leroy Jethro Gibbs of TV’s “NCIS.” But the Bible disagrees with Gibbs and indicates that being sorrowful is a sign of growth and strength. Here are several truths I’m learning about GODLY SORROW:

I. The Occasion for Godly Sorrow (v. 8)

II. The Outcome of Godly Sorrow (v. 9)

III. Two Kinds of Sorrow (v. 10)

IV.  The Fruit of Godly Sorrow (v. 11)

V. Godly Sorrow’s Effect on Others (vv. 12-13)
