Very helpful bracket! What stands out to me (that I didn’t see in the passage prior to your bracket) is the two-pronged reason that we are without excuse: both the visibility of God through creation AND our willful suppression of the truth. Also, I’m convicted by your question at the end. It’s one thing to give mental ascent to this truth; it’s another thing to allow it to be a driving force that compels us to evangelize.
@Brent-Karding Very powerful and encouraging summary, Brent. I had difficulty with arcing verse 7. Paul seems to repeat the purpose of the thorn twice, “So to keep me from becoming conceited because of the surpassing greatness of the revelations,” and then again “to keep me from becoming conceited.” I’m curious what you think of how I handled it…
