Assurance of the Resurrection


1 For we know that if aour earthly 1house, this tent, is destroyed, we have a building from God, a house bnot made with hands, eternal in the heavens.
2 For in this awe groan, earnestly desiring to be clothed with our 1habitation which is from heaven,
3 if indeed, ahaving been clothed, we shall not be found naked.
4 For we who are in this tent groan, being burdened, not because we want to be unclothed, abut further clothed, that mortality may be swallowed up by life.

5 Now He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who also ahas given us the Spirit as 1a guarantee.
6 So we are always confident, knowing that while we are at home in the body we are absent from the Lord.
7 For awe walk by faith, not by sight.
8 We are confident, yes, awell pleased rather to be absent from the body and to be present with the Lord.

The Judgment Seat of Christ

9 Therefore we make it our aim, whether present or absent, to be well pleasing to Him.
10 aFor we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, bthat each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.
11 Knowing, therefore, athe terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are well known to God, and I also trust are well known in your consciences.

Be Reconciled to God

12 For awe do not commend ourselves again to you, but give you opportunity bto boast on our behalf, that you may have an answer for those who boast in appearance and not in heart.
13 For aif we are beside ourselves, it is for God; or if we are of sound mind, it is for you.
14 For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that aif One died for all, then all died;
15 and He died for all, athat those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.
16 aTherefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, byet now we know Him thus no longer.
17 Therefore, if anyone ais in Christ, he is ba new creation; cold things have passed away; behold, all things have become dnew.
18 Now all things are of God, awho has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation,
19 that is, that aGod was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not 1imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.
20 Now then, we are aambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God.
21 For aHe made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become bthe righteousness of God in Him.

Marks of the Ministry


1 We then, as aworkers together with Him also bplead with you not to receive the grace of God in vain.
2 For He says:

a“In an acceptable time I have heard you, And in the day of salvation I have helped you.”

Behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.
3 aWe give no offense in anything, that our ministry may not be blamed.
4 But in all things we commend ourselves aas ministers of God: in much 1patience, in tribulations, in needs, in distresses,
5 ain stripes, in imprisonments, in tumults, in labors, in sleeplessness, in fastings;
6 by purity, by knowledge, by longsuffering, by kindness, by the Holy Spirit, by 1sincere love,
7 aby the word of truth, by bthe power of God, by cthe armor of righteousness on the right hand and on the left,
8 by honor and dishonor, by evil report and good report; as deceivers, and yet true;
9 as unknown, and ayet well known; bas dying, and behold we live; cas chastened, and yet not killed;
10 as sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many arich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.

Be Holy

11 O Corinthians! 1We have spoken openly to you, aour heart is wide open.
12 You are not restricted by us, but ayou are restricted by your own affections.
13 Now in return for the same a(I speak as to children), you also be open.
14 aDo not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For bwhat 1fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what 2communion has light with darkness?
15 And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever?
16 And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For ayou1 are the temple of the living God. As God has said:

b“I will dwell in them And walk among them. I will be their God, And they shall be My people.”

17 Therefore

The Book oF


THE Book of Psalms is the largest and perhaps most widely used book in the Bible. It explores the full range of human experience in a very personal and practical way. Its 150 “songs” run from the Creation through the patriarchal, theocratic, monarchical, exilic, and postexilic periods. The tremendous breadth of subject matter in the Psalms includes diverse topics, such as jubilation, war, peace, worship, judgment, messianic prophecy, praise, and lament. The Psalms were set to the accompaniment of stringed instruments and served as the temple hymnbook and devotional guide for the Jewish people. The Book of Psalms was gradually collected and originally unnamed, perhaps due to the great variety of material. It came to be known as Sepher Tehillim— “Book of Praises”—because almost every psalm contains some note of praise to God. The Septuagint uses the Greek work Psalmoi as its title for this book, meaning “Poems Sung to the Accompaniment of Musical Instruments.” It also calls it the Psalterium (“A Collection of Songs”), and this word is the basis for the term Psalter. The Latin title is Liber Psalmorum, “Book of Psalms.”

Psalms 1—41


The Way of the Righteous and the End of the Ungodly

1 BLESSED ais the man Who walks not in the counsel of the 1ungodly, Nor stands in the path of sinners, bNor sits in the seat of the scornful;
2 But ahis delight is in the law of the LORD, bAnd in His law he 1meditates day and night.

4 The ungodly are not so, But are alike the chaff which the wind drives away.
5 Therefore the ungodly shall not stand in the judgment, Nor sinners in the congregation of the righteous.

6 For athe LORD knows the way of the righteous, But the way of the ungodly shall perish.
