Fellow workers for joy in Christ | Week of June 22

2 Corinthians 1:24, Not that we have dominion over your faith, but are fellow workers for your joy, for by faith you stand.

From the sermon series: The work of God

In this portion of Paul’s letter to the Corinthians, he assures them of his sincerity to help and encourage them in their faith because he is a servant of God.

With these words from 2 Corinthians 1:24, Paul is acknowledging, and perhaps reminding, the early Christians that he is not the one responsible for their faith. His presence in their lives is not what allows them to believe in Jesus Christ. God is the One who offers the gift of faith, and it is each one, individually, who chooses to accept this gift and embrace it. The apostles, ministers, and other believers work alongside us in our faith and help us along, but it is our responsibility to deepen our relationship with God, which allows us to find true joy.

Journal Prompt: How have other Christians encouraged or helped you in your faith?
