18 May Being Spent – 5/18/20
2 Corinthians 12:15 – “I will most gladly spend and be spent for your souls. If I love you more, am I to be loved less?”
Similar to what we have all probably felt before in trying to preach the Gospel, Paul was having his motives and credibility questioned by the Corinthians. Nonetheless, Paul cares for those people and desires them to know Christ more deeply. He doubles down on his mission and states his intention to pour out his time, money, and energy (or be spent) for their sake even if they don’t appreciate it in the moment.
Prayer Point: Pray that the Lord would give you a heart that is willing to be spent, or sacrificed, for His Kingdom.
