Paul study for 1/11/13 part 2
There seems to be a connection with Paul between suffering and grace; let's explore that.
Read: Romans 3:24-25, 5:8. Whose suffering is this and for what purpose?
Read: Philippians 1:29: whose suffering is this, and why?
Read: 2 Corinthians 12:7-10; what is Paul's theological conceit here?
Finally, read Philippians 3:10-11, Does this tie up the above thoughts nice and neat or make it muddier?
Going deeper: Acquire Philippians. By this I mean, read it until you can explain what he is saying in your own words. It's only 4 chapters
