- Commentary: 2 CORINTHIANS 5 COMMENTARY
Bible Text: 2 Corinthians 5:6-10 (ESV)
6 So we are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, 7 for we walk by faith, not by sight.
8 Yes, we are of good courage, and we would rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord. 9 So whether we are at home or away, we make it our aim to please him. 10 For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each one may receive what is due for what he has done in the body, whether good or evil.
Reflection & Application
2 Corinthians 5:6-10
- Reflect on the phrases “we walk by faith, not by sight” and “we make it our aim to please him.” To what extent are these true of my life? What does this reveal about my confidence in heaven and the fact that “we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ” one day?
