For Reflection and Discussion

Read 2 Corinthians 12:1-10

  1. Beth talked about the length of time restrictions have been set and the expectation that they are going to continue? How have you weathered them – with optimism, or are you flagging with having to keep on through difficult times – even in despair? How may prayer help?
  2. In verse 9, the Lord answers Paul when He does not take the “thorn in the flesh” in this way “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Have you ever experienced that in Your life? How do you think oyu may pray it in the present circumstances?
  3. Paul finishes the passage by saying “Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. That is why, for Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” (Verses 9b-10). Can you think of examples, either from the Bible, in your life or the lives of others where you have you seen this demonstrated? How is it possible to be strong, yet weak?
  4. Thinking of those in persecuted countries, how they may be strong when they are weak? Take time to pray for them and also how you and those you know deal with the pressures of life.
