Notes on 2nd Corinthians Chapter 7

Paul’s Joy

•God comforts those who are downcast (2nd Corinthians 7:6)

•It is important to be sincere when we repent. “See what this godly sorrow has produced in you: what earnestness, what eagerness to clear yourselves, what indignation, what alarm, what longing, what concern, what readiness to see justice done.” (2nd Corinthians 7:11)

I think it is important to understand the significance of being “sorry.” Sometimes, I find myself muttering a quick “sorry” to get out of a situation. “Sorry” is not a free pass to forget about a problem, or a wrongdoing. It should be sincere, and as Paul writes, “earnest,” with longing to see everything become right.
