2 Corinthians 1:11

11 If you also 1help in this by apetition on our behalf, that for the 2gift to us through many, bthanks may be given by many 3persons on our behalf.


112 Referring to the grace given (v. 12), the resurrected Christ Himself, who is the grace that the apostles enjoyed in the experience of resurrection out of death (vv. 9-10). This is the gift of grace, which is different from the gifts of abilities mentioned in 1 Cor. 12 and 14. The gift of grace is inward for life, and the gifts of abilities are outward for function.
