Second Reading for the 7th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year B

2 Corinthians 1:18-22

Summary: Our message, as proclaimed by Silvanus, Timothy, and me, is consistent: in Jesus, all God's promises are a resounding "yes." God establishes, anoints us, and gives His Spirit as a guarantee.

God's Promises Fulfilled in Christ

As God is faithful, our word to you is not “yes” and “no.” For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was proclaimed to you by us, Silvanus and Timothy and me, was not “yes” and “no,” but “yes” has been in him.

For however many are the promises of God, their Yes is in him; therefore, the Amen from us also goes through him to God for glory.

But the one who gives us security with you in Christ and who anointed us is God; he has also put his seal upon us and given the Spirit in our hearts as a first installment.
