2 Corinthians 7
(1) Because we have God’s promise that He will be our Father and will make us His sons and daughters, we ought to live holy lives unto Him.
(2-16) Paul’s Joy
When he was restless and afflicted, Paul found comfort in God who comforts the downcast. He was also comforted by Titus, who is an example of how God’s people should encourage and support one another. Paul acknowledges that he said some harsh things to the Corinthian Christians because of their sin, but now he is glad that those hurtful words have caused them to come to repentance. When we are truly sorry for things we have done wrong, we will not continually grieve over those things, but will instead be led to repent of our wrongs which will lead to salvation without regret. Comfort and joy are the blessed results of repentance.
