2 Corinthians 13

2 Corinthians 13 … This chapter is the closing of Paul’s second letter to the Corinthians in which he pleaded with them to be obedient to the faith they had professed in Christ during his earlier visits. He did visit them a third time, for three months, during which he wrote the letter to the Romans and expressed that his work among the Corinthians was complete, giving some indication that the Corinthians had heeded this letter and his confirming visit. You see in 2 Corinthians 13:4-5 the emphasis of Christian living in the power of God working in you and the urging to examine ourselves (a very healthy thing – Psalm 139:23-24) to assess our own faithfulness.

The chapter ends with one of the great benedictions, verses 11-14, calling for Christian living on the highest plane – rejoicing and comforted by God’s love and peace, living in fellowship of the saints and with the Holy Spirit, which is a very blessed place to be.
