  • Satan desires complacency toward sin
  • Satan desire isolation of weak Christians
  • Application
    • Be Alert
    • Address Sin
    • Restore the Repentant
    • Cary One Another’s Burdens
Paul’s Intermission (2:12-13)
  • Paul continues to travel toward Macedonia, even though God opened the door for ministry in Troas.
Jesus’ Triumph (2:14-17)
  • Christ always leads us
  • Understanding the historical “Triumphant Procession”
  • “We are the aroma of Christ to God…”
    • Who does God claim to be in leading the trimphant procession?
    • How does this truth impact your view of God?
    • How does God’s triumph impact the way you Christians who are walking in repentance after significant sins?
    • What does it mean for you to be the fragrance of Jesus to God? Do you feel sufficient (2:16b)?
  • MEMORIZE: 2 Corinthians 3:18
