Struck Down but Not Destroyed is a study of Second Corinthians, Chapter Four, particularly verses 8-10.
There, Paul lists several challenges he has experienced as a pastor and church leader, and how he met each challenge with the grace of God in his heart.
He defends himself as a pastor, as a preacher, and as an apostle, countering the claims of those he calls “super-apostles” (2 Corinthians 11:5). Moreover, he commends himself to the better judgment of those in the leadership of the church at Corinth.
Paul was the first to bring the good news of Jesus Christ to the people at this burgeoning seaport. He was not alone, but he was the leader among these witnesses to the faith. Despite those who tried to undermine his work and deflate his authority, he never wavered in his devotion to the Lord.
Whether you’re a pastor or engaged in another service vocation, you’ll be inspired by Paul’s wisdom and the author’s reflections and insights.
