A Sincere and Pure Devotion to Christ (Vol. 2, 2 Corinthians 7-13) [eBook]
100 Daily Meditations on 2 Corinthians
Paul’s affection for the Corinthian church and his endurance through hardship for their joy testifies to his deep devotion to Christ. Paul’s example and instruction in this letter inspires us to find our joy in Jesus.
In both volumes of A Sincere and Pure Devotion to Christ, Storms provides readers with fifty daily meditations on this great epistle that are both accessible and substantive. His analysis and application of the biblical text make these meditations suitable for private devotions or small group studies, or as a commentary for Bible study, Sunday School lessons, or sermon preparation.
SAM STORMS is senior pastor of Bridgeway Church in Oklahoma City. After serving as a pastor for twenty-five years and teaching theology at Wheaton College for four years, he established Enjoying God Ministries, which provides a wide range of biblical and theological resources to the body of Christ.

“There are few people on the planet who embody in life and in teaching the radically biblical and Edwardsian message of Christian Hedonism better than Sam Storms.”
—John Piper, Founder, desiringGod.org; Chancellor, Bethlehem College and Seminary
“Younger leaders are flocking to learn from Sam Storms because he combines the best of charismatic and Calvinistic theology into a heart-grabbing, Bible-believing, mind-stretching, sin-stomping, Christ-exalting act of worship.”
—Mark Driscoll, Founding Pastor, Mars Hill Church, Seattle Washington; Founder, Resurgence; Co-founder, Acts 29; author, Death by Love
“Sam Storms has served a splendid reflection on 2 Corinthians that will benefit readers at all levels. Those with no theological training will profit from an accessible and clear style, learning not only the rich content of 2 Corinthians, but also how to study the Bible and apply it to life. Those with questions about what happens after someone dies, or how to handle discouragement, or how we can be more confident in sharing our faith with others will find biblical answers. Pastors preparing for sermons on 2 Corinthians will appreciate Storms’ interaction with commentators, his careful exegetical decisions, and the pastoral application of 2 Corinthians. This book is exegetically responsible, theologically profound, and pastorally relevant. I highly recommend it.”
—Chris Brauns, Pastor, The Red Brick Church, Stillman Valley, Illinois; author, Unpacking Forgiveness, Bound Together, and When the Word Leads Your Pastoral Search
“Storms in his usual clear, engaging, heartwarming style unlocks perhaps Paul’s most personal and Christ-centered letter. You will be reminded afresh that everything really is all about Jesus. Release the life-changing power of this much neglected letter as Storms demonstrates that its message can change you in every way.”
—Adrian Warnock, author, Raised With Christ: How the Resurrection Changes Everything
