Operate within the bounds that God has set

2 Corinthians Bible Background

09.18.2016 – New Testament: 2Co 10.14

To read the Bible in a year, read Second Corinthians 10 on September 18, In the year of our Lord 2016

By Don Ruhl

God only allowed the apostles to operate within certain bounds, and that would certainly go for us as well. After saying that he stayed within the sphere that God set him, Paul said,

For we are not overextending ourselves (as though our authority did not extend to you), for it was to you that we came with the gospel of Christ… (2 Corinthians 10.14). 

Therefore, whatever Paul and his team did and whatever they spoke, they did so within the bounds that the God of heaven set for them.

Questions:

  • Does it matter to you that you stay within the will of God?
