People's Bible Notes for 2 Corinthians 11:25


2Co 11:25 Thrice was I beaten with rods. This was the Roman scourging. Only one of these instances is reported in Ac 16:23. Once was I stoned. See Ac 14:19. Thrice I suffered shipwreck. No account elsewhere is given of these. The shipwreck, on the way to Italy (Ac 27:44), was of later date. A night and a day I have been in the deep. In an open boat, or on driftwood, after a shipwreck.

    Acts 9:15 15 But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel: Paul didn't have to brag about what he did for the Lord Jesus, Jesus said that Paul was a chosen vessel into him. That alone is special from Jesus himself. Jesus, thank you for using Apostle Paul for the Gentiles. Love

    Wow Apostle Paul labored more then anybody in the Lord. 2 Corinthians 11:23 Are they ministers of Christ? I speak as a fool I am more in labours more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequent, in deaths oft. Jesus suffer the cross, Paul suffer beheaded. Wow, that is unbelievable how they suffered. There is a friend that sticked closer then a brother, that's Jesus.

    Kurt: Yes:No one is Saved until one is Called(a Tugging on Your Heart):John 6:44 / Ask Forgiveness:1John1:9 /They are Washed in His Blood:Revelation1:5 / They Will be Baptized with His Spirit and giving a New Heart, You will be Changed! Mark l:8, 2Corinthians 5:17, You will Know! Impossible not to Know. Tribulation and Persecution comes to All who are Saved. Acts 14:22 / No roots:Matthew 13:21

    Let Paul be our example to follow and be like Christ. We are saved for good works, and trials. Our grit to show the Gospel and its meaning in our lives is what the world needs. When I have petty challenges in my world that has a high standard of living what am I showing others? That I have a better hope? Surely not. Worry not little things so God can invite us for bigger works, and trials! Kurt
