- Chapters 5 and 6 (2 Corinthians 5:1-7:1)
- We look forward to being with God, “being at home with the Lord.” Our lives on earth are temporary, whereas our lives with God will be everlasting. Therefore, we must be careful what we do on earth, since we will be judged when we die based on our actions while we lived. We want to please the Lord so that we can be with Him. (see 2 Corinthians 5:1-10)
- Jesus died for us, for our sins, reconciling us with God. (see 2 Corinthians 5:11-21)
- Paul is trying to help the Corinthians, as a spiritual father, and will put up with hardships to do so. In all, though, he speaks with authority, by the power of the Holy Spirit, and is to be trusted over the false prophets. (see 2 Corinthians 6:1-7:1)
