Study 6 From The Book of 2 Corinthians Is: 2 Corinthians 5:11-6:10
- What great motive dominated Paul’s life, and to what conclusion did it lead him? See verses 14-17. How far are we like Paul in this matter?
- 5:18-6:2. What does Paul say God (a) has done in Christ and (b) now purposes to do through us? What ought we to tell men, and to beseech them to do, in order to fulfill our God-given task?
- Examine the list of twenty–eight particulars in which Paul describes the kind of life and experience into which the acceptance of Christ and of Christ’s commission led him. To what extend do you find that this describes your life as a Christian?
- 5:12. An allusion to the intruders who were undermining Paul’s influence in Corinth. Paul’s purpose in these verses (11-13) is to assure his readers that however he may appear to them, whether mad or sane, in heart he is true to God and to them.
- Verse 21. ‘The sin is laid by God upon the sinless One… His death is the execution of the divine sentence upon it…and there is henceforth no condemnation to them that are in Christ.
