2 Corinthians 11:16-33 … Paul continues defense of his ministry and proclaims that if he’s thought of as a foolish person (v.16-19), that’s fine with him because (1 Corinthians 1:27) God uses the foolish things of the world to confound the wise. One of the amazing things you find in these closing verses of 2 Corinthians 11 is Paul’s personal testimony, which is not one of awards, high position, or titles. The Apostle has an amazing testimony of bravery, suffering, persistence and commitment to Christ in bringing the Gospel to the lost. As you read it over, you’ll recognize some of the events from Paul’s life, while other events are presented only here. You gain an appreciation of the greatness of first century Apostles who were used of God to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ and they did so faithfully without counting the cost. What an example to us, who live comfortable, unthreatened lives! It seems like we’d try to be a bit more emboldened in our own endeavors by knowing Paul’s testimony.
