2 Corinthians 1:15-19

15 Because I was confident of this, I wanted to visit you first so that you might benefit twice. 16 I wanted to visit you on my way to Macedonia and to come back to you from Macedonia, and then to have you send me on my way to Judea. 17 Was I fickle when I intended to do this? Or do I make my plans in a worldly manner so that in the same breath I say both “Yes, yes” and “No, no”?

18 But as surely as God is faithful, our message to you is not “Yes” and “No.” 19 For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us—by me and Silas[c] and Timothy—was not “Yes” and “No,” but in him it has always been “Yes.”

One response to “2 Corinthians 1:15-19

  1. Paul, in his own intentions, and for his pleasure, had intended to see them on his way through. It sounds as if he had committed to this and then had not been able to follow through. False prophets were using this to attack the truthfulness of his message and harm the gospel.

    A warning to me that all of my actions and choices affect the gospel and the message of Christ. I need to weigh my thoughts, words, and actions on how they could reflect on Christ.
