Life Applications and Lessons in 2 Corinthians (Chapters 1-4)

Saturday Morning Life Applications (Vol. 77)

As we finished reading I Corinthians last week, we saw so many life applications and lessons we could apply to our lives. I know the Lord has just as much to share with us in 2 Corinthians.

Life applications and lessons in 2 Corinthians

Let’s take a look at some of the life applications and lessons in 2 Corinthians.

  • You have probably heard people say, “The Lord won’t give you more than you can bear.” Paul is saying the opposite of that.
  • There is a verse in the Bible (I Cor. 10:13) that says, “He will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear.” That specifically talks about temptations.
  • You may be given more than you can bear, but it will not be more than He can bear.
  • Learn to depend upon Him when the storms of life come upon you.

Our life should reflect Christ to the world. The way we live is a living testimony of Who He is.


  • We reflect His glory with our life, but it is a step by step process – learning and growing spiritually. We will never be perfect until Heaven, but we can try our best with His help.
    • What kind of glory do you see in the mirror?
    • What kind of glory does the world see in you?
    • Who are you reflecting?
  • This has to be a step by step process. Otherwise, could you imagine how overwhelming it would be if He showed us everything we needed to change in our lives when we first came to know Him?
  • The Lord is the One Who changes us. We are able to change in His power.

  • Ministry is a privilege.
  • There would be no ministry for us to participate in if we had not received mercy.
  • There are times that we need to check our mindset. It is an honor to serve Him, especially after all He has done for us.
  • In the hard times of ministry, think of the mercy and grace He has given us, and let it encourage us to not give up!

If you have joined me recently, these daily life application posts are examples of some of the comments I am writing in the Bibles I am giving to my grandchildren when they graduate from high school. Click here to see the post where I explain this eternal gift idea. I want to give them all the resources I can to use in today’s world!

The rose colored Bible is the one I am using for my youngest granddaughter, and I really love it! It is the She Reads Truth Bible, CSB. I did some research before purchasing the CSB, and I found that it is translated from the original text and very accurate – very important!

Let’s make a point of implementing these life applications and lessons this week.

  • When you are overwhelmed, let Him carry you.
  • Let His glory shine through us and be a reflection of Him to the world.
  • Remember that ministry is a privilege!

If you got other nuggets of truth this week, please share them. I love hearing how the Lord speaks!

Until next week…

  1. Life is hard but it is such a blessing to know that we can always turn to him, and how healing that is when we do! Thank you for another lovely post.

  2. So excited to dive into this book too, Susan! I cringe every time I hear someone say, “God will not give you more than you can handle” and I’ll be honest at one time I thought that was true. Then my grandparents died 36 hours apart and my family’s life was turned inside out and upside down. Now that we’re on the other side, I realize that we were equipped every step of the way but we were never equipped up front or all at once because that would have overwhelmed us even more and growing and healing takes time. Big hugs, CoCo

    1. Wow! I can’t even imagine what that was like going through! That would definitely be more to handle than just humanly possible! I am so glad He carried you through! Now look at your testimony to share. I hope you have a blessed weekend!
