Next Week’s Message: When God’s says “No” 2 Corinthians 12:1-10
Saying “no” to those we love is not always easy. As parents we say “no” to our children when they ask for things, knowing that better things are in store. Sometimes their requests are legitimate – but still it is best to say “no.” What is true on an earthly level is also true on a spiritual one. God at times says “no” to legitimate requests. In 2 Corinthians 12, Paul prayed 3 times over for deliverance from a “thorn in the flesh.” And, three times God said “no.” There are many lessons to be learned from this passage and we will explore them next week.
We are going to take a break from our study of Galatians and pick it up again, after Labor Day. Galatians 5 & 6 is the practical part of the book and we want to insure maximum exposure to that teaching.
