Godly Sincerity and Heart Hiding {Weeks 22 & 23}


This is the first of two  Heart Hiding posts this week.  By the calendar it is Week 34.  I am running just a tad behind, but that’s okay.  I am enjoying Paul’s letter to Corinth.  I’m working on Week 27 — getting caught up in my posting!

How about you?  How is your memorization going?

This is week 22 & 23 of  Heart Hidingwhere we are memorizing 2 Corinthians 1-5.  Week 22 is the second part of Paul’s telling the believers at Corinth that they (and we) are a sweet savour of Christ, to both believers and unbelievers.  And that we should do so with godly sincerity.

To the one we are the savor of death unto death; and to the other the savor of life unto life.  And who is sufficient for these things?

For we are not as many, which corrupt the word of God:  but as of sincerity, but as of God, in the sight of God speak we in Christ.

2 Corinthians 2:16-17

He makes a distinction between believers, who practice godly sincerity before God, and those who use the Word of God for their own purposes.  When do we see that happening today?!

Week 23 is a review week for 2 Corinthians 1:1-24 and 2 Corinthians 2:1-17.

As I have mentioned before, I have my verses in Scripture Typer, which reminds me to review previously learned portions on a regular basis.  I find that I often need more frequent review for better retention.

How about you?  Do you know that you are practicing godly sincerity before God, and of God?  Are you speaking “in Christ”?  Or are you using God’s Word corruptly to promote your own purposes?

trusting God and Heart Hiding, scripture memorization

The heart hiding {Scripture Memorization} page was updated recently.  You may want to check it out.  It is located  under the BIBLE tab, which is under the WORSHIP tab, which is just below the header (WordWorks).  The heart hiding page now has every heart hiding post linked to it, so that you no longer have to scroll through them all (and wait for them to load).

If you have a moment to share with others how God is using His Word in your life,

we would all be blessed and encouraged.  

This is Week 22 & 23 of Heart Hiding, Scripture memorization, which will be posted on Sundays throughout 2014.   In case you missed  the previous posts, you can find them here:
