In Season 3 we are moving through 2 Corinthians. Today’s lesson covers chapter 1. 2-11. Some people have amazing effect on the lives of others. They bring change to anyone who is around them for very long. Today’s lesson is about where they get the power to change the lives of others.
Today’s lesson covers (2 Corinthians Chapter 1:1-2) and our topic today is Finding our Identity as a person in ministry. I love this book! It has ministered to me throughout my 30+ years of full-time service to the Lord and the body of Christ. In this book Paul is a middle-aged man looking back on his life. Like all of us will, he asks this question: “Did I live well? Did I succeed in life?”

The impact of Paul’s life is something of a marvel. He was just a man, one man without much money or a big operation, yet his daily actions caused his life to have tremendous impact on other people, on whole families, on organizations and institutions and even on whole cities.
Remember Maslow’s “Five Levels” theory? In the West, we pretty much live at the most difficult level of all, self actualization, “being all that I can be in life”. This, of course, is impossible because there’s always a little bit more that we could be or some way we could improve, so most of us remain frustrated at our lack of perfection because, actually, this is more or less a godlike realm to live in.
Can you imagine what you would do if you found yourself in a social situation where a senior government official was present and they turned to you and began a conversation that you realized was God’s open door for you to witness to them? In this episode of Thread we look at how the Apostle Paul handled this exact situation. He was a master spokesman for God to people of high position.
Have you ever been stuck in a place and you wanted to move on but had no options available? Today’s Thread is about the special trial of being blocked. You know where you want to be but circumstances have hemmed you in. Sometimes we agonize over making the perfect choice that we allow our life’s progress to grind to a halt. Any action is better than inaction in many cases. You can adjust later. Watch how the Apostle Paul did it in this episode of Thread.
