2 Corinthians 1:19-20
2 Cor 1:19 Because the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was proclaimed among you by us, namely by me and Silvanus and Timothy, was not “Yes and no,” on the contrary, with him it has always been “Yes.”
2 Cor 1:20 Because as many as the promises of God are, with him they are “Yes,” that is why it is through him we say “Amen!,” to the glory of God.
he keeps his promises
Paul reminds the Corinthian believers that when his team was preaching in Corinth, they did not contradict each other when they talked about the gospel and the promises of God. So, it appears that some are now saying that Paul cannot be trusted, because he cannot keep his promises. Paul’s point is that God’s promises are always kept.
LORD, thank you for being faithful to your word, no matter how much we fail.
