2ND CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 11 21 THRU 23
20 For you put up with it if someone enslaves you, or devours you, or gets the better of you, or puts on airs, or slaps you in the face. 21 To my shame I say that we were too weak!* But what anyone dares to boast of (I am speaking in foolishness) I also dare. 22 Are they Hebrews? So am I. Are they Israelites? So am I. Are they descendants of Abraham? So am I. 23 Are they ministers of Christ? (I am talking like an insane person.) I am still more, with far greater labors, far more imprisonments, far worse beatings, and numerous brushes with death.
Paul wanted to make sure that we understood that no one is better than anyone else. This especially means Christ ministers expressing a freedom of humility that allows us to devour people who act uppity knowing your relationship is self-concluded and is driven by what you like what you don’t like living the reason we place God First; Jesus.
Paul didn’t want to brag but asked the Corinthians to put up with his foolishness to gain an understanding of situations Jesus had led him through where our Father Almighty kept him alive to share the Gospel’s Foundation of Salvation we are all drawn to. What we deny to conceive is what we comply in our greed. The situations are only placed there by the choices we make where God isn’t first forcing our need of forgiveness caused by being enslaved by ways of the world slapping your face until death reaches pace. Amen.
Join us in our daily prayer of forgiveness. I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and Rose for me. Prayer intentions. IN Jesus Name. Amen.
I am a poet obedient to Christ,
Evangelist Thomas Cruz†Wiggins

Weak confessed Paul was shame he felt taps
Bearing foolishness boasting as others dare

Person insane talks

Strength in Jesus
Paul to please us
