13 But having the same spirit of faith, according to what is written,
“I BELIEVED, THEREFORE I SPOKE,” we also believe, therefore we also speak,
14 knowing that He who raised the Lord Jesus will raise us also with Jesus and will
present us with you. 15 For all things are for your sakes, so that the grace which is spreading to more and more people may cause the giving of thanks to abound to the glory of God. 16 Therefore we do not lose heart, but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day. 17 For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison, 18 while we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen; for the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal.
II Corinthians 4:13-18
I discovered these rich sermon notes when doing some cleaning at the house. The sermon was from Dr. Wayne Fulton and I’m thinking 1995 time period.
Title: Faith Can Fine Tune…
vs 13 – Our speech…on the mountain top and in the valley
vs14 – Our stability (assurance—see also II Cor 1:9-10)
vs15 – Our steadfastness (stick to it attitude)
vs 16 – Our strength…outward man perishes, but the inward man renews in Christ
vs 17,18 – Our sight…light affliction is for a moment, but weight of glory is eternal
I miss Dr. Fulton whose humble wisdom and love for Christ eternally changed me, but I’m grateful for little nuggets from his sermons.
