Captive in God’s victory procession
Please download the PDF of Ed Mathews’s free devotional book, Plow New Ground. Today’s meditation alone is worth the effort, based on 2 Cor 2.14. Among other things, Ed writes,
Messenger of God. As a captive in the victory procession of God, Paul spread everywhere the message of redemption, II Corinthians 2:14. The Lord made His intentions known through His surrendered servant, Colossians 1:25. Paul was not fickle. He was faithful. He followed the drum beat of heaven. He was “sent from God,” II Corinthians 2:17b. He went when the Lord called. He did what the Lord commanded. His life was not his own. It belonged to God. Consequently, Paul could rightly say, “I no longer live, but Christ lives in me,” Galatians 2:20.
People read so many flawed denominational materials — hey, we have far superior writings and true teaching in many brotherhood material, like this one.
