II Corinthians 1:8-11

We do not want you to be uninformed, brothers and sisters,[a] about the troubles we experienced in the province of Asia. We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired of life itself. Indeed, we felt we had received the sentence of death. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead. 10 He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us again. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us, 11 as you help us by your prayers. Then many will give thanks on our behalf for the gracious favor granted us in answer to the prayers of many.

  1. Their peril was like unto death. They believed that they would be killed. From this situation, God raised and delivered them to demonstrate his power even over death.

    My life needs to be a place where I am willing to suffer, no matter the depth or pain, so that Christ can be honored through me. This is tough for me to accept and handle in my selfishness. It is clearly an area where I need to focus and work to be more like Jesus
