Teaching People the Word of God
Blessed, Stressed & Depressed(2 Corinthians 7:5-7)Pastor Blake Wilson, December 17, 2017
Part of the Set the Captives Free series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
We continue in our series Set the Captives Free, Pastor Blake teaches from the book of 2 Corinthians and poses a major question to everyone. How are you doing? No, how are you really doing? Many time when we are asked this question we give a "christian" answer such as "blessed and highly favored". In 2 Corinthians 7:5-7 Paul reveals his heart and honestly writes that he is blessed but also stressed and depressed. This should inspire all of us to be more honest when asked this question.

2 Corinthians 7:5-7
5 For even when we came into Macedonia, our bodies had no rest, but we were afflicted at every turn—fighting without and fear within. 6 But God, who comforts the downcast, comforted us by the coming of Titus, 7 and not only by his coming but also by the comfort with which he was comforted by you, as he told us of your longing, your mourning, your zeal for me, so that I rejoiced still more.
