In 2 Corinthians 5, Paul says that Christ’s love compels us – because we are convinced that Jesus is who he says he is. We become, Paul says, a new creation, transformed in our thinking and our perspective. That said, the real question is, what does that the love of Christ compel us to DO?
This week, Mike preaches from 2 Corinthians 4 in support of the Wednesday night Fall Series.
This week Jay teaches out of the third chapter of 2 Corinthians.
This week’s lesson is from 2 Corinthians 2, and is focused on the “aroma of Christ.”
The issue in chapter 2 is sin -and conflict – and the need for forgiveness. Paul points out that Satan is scheming to disrupt the unity of the Body.
In this lesson, Mike looks at three very specific purposes of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit marks you as a child of God. The Spirit gives life and set you free. The Spirit helps you to pray. The critical question is whether or not our minds are set on earthly things or on “Spirit-ual” things?
