Prayer
By: Rev. Lynwood F. Mundy

Heavenly Father, as we all awake to your grace and mercy, I personally want to thank you.

August 3 Lesson 10 COMFORT IN TIMES OF TROUBLE
DEVOTIONAL READING: Psalm 46 BACKGROUND SCRIPTURE: 2 Corinthians 1:3–11

2 CORINTHIANS 1:3–11
3 Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;
4 Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
5 For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ.
6 And whether we be afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effectual in the enduring of the same sufferings which we also suffer: or whether we be comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation.
7 And our hope of you is stedfast, knowing, that as ye are partakers of the sufferings, so shall ye be also of the consolation.
8 For we would not, brethren, have you ignorant of our trouble which came to us in Asia, that we were pressed out of measure, above strength, insomuc…

*Lesson based on International Sunday School Lesson

LessonAugust 3, 2014 Comfort in Times of Trouble2 Corinthians 1:3-11This treatment of the International Sunday School Lesson is written by Sam E. Stone, former editor of CHRISTIAN STANDARD. It is published in the July 20 issue of The Lookout magazine, and is also available online at www.lookoutmag.com. ______ By Sam E. Stone  Last month’s lessons were all based on Paul’s first letter to the church in Corinth. This month we study his second letter to the Corinthians. Apparently the apostle wrote his second epistle around AD 55. Some of the false teachers in the church continued to misrepresent him, seeking to diminish his influence there. This letter responded to these attacks coming from a brazen minority in the church. J. W. McGarvey said, “These . . . charges and innuendoes were so . . . gross in their nature . . . that, for the good of the cause, Paul felt impelled to write this defense. Being strongly emotional from end to end, it is in style the most difficult of all Paul’s Epistle…

Connect the Testaments: A Daily Devotional

August 3
The Art of Discipline

Isaiah 5:1–6:13; Luke 1:67–2:21; Job 2:1–10

Jesus didn’t die for us so that we could continue to sin—He sacrificed Himself so that we could have sinless lives. God is patient, but His patience does not last forever. We wouldn’t test His patience so often if we had not lost sight of the notion of discipline, a concept that is at the forefront in the OT.

In the book of Isaiah, God describes His people using the image of a vineyard:
“And now let me tell you what I myself am about to do to my vineyard. I will remove its hedge, and it shall become a devastation. I will break down its wall, and it shall become a trampling. And I will make it a wasteland; it shall not be pruned and hoed, and it shall be overgrown with briers and thornbushes.… For the vineyard of Yahweh of hosts is the house of Israel, and the man of Judah is the plantation of his delight. And he [Yahweh] waited for justice, but look! Bloodshed! For righteousness, but look! A cry of distress!” (Isa …
