Galatians 1:1-10

Given that this new year we are starting is “2020“, it is hard to avoid the visual theme. It is in that spirit that the theme for our study through Galatians will be “Seeing Christianity Clearly”. After having been with the Corinthians for about the last two years, I think you will find the “pamphlet…

2 Corinthians 13:1-14

Today’s message brings our 2nd Corinthians to a close by covering all of chapter 13! Paul has finished defending himself and his foolish boasting. Emotionally exhausted, he takes a breath and discusses with this church a future visit before he closes the letter. If you remember, Paul has been scrutinized and criticized by the Corinthians.…

2 Corinthians 12:11-21

We will start off today’s continuation of our study in 2 Corinthians with a lighter view of parenting. Why? Although 2 Cor 12 is not a passage about parenting, Paul uses parenting as an analogy to discuss his relationship with the Corinthian believers. And it is ever so appropriate! They are a church of spiritual…

2 Corinthians 12:1-10

This week we enter chapter 12 of 2nd Corinthians covering verses 1-10. This passage is packed with both curiosity and familiarity! Curiosity? In being forced to brag a bit, Paul meets the false teachers on the field of spiritual revelation and vision! Paul had his share of visions—you can read more about this in the…

2 Corinthians 11:16-33

Continuing this intense section with Paul arguing against the false teachers in Corinth, this week we finish up chapter eleven, where Paul focuses on his suffering for the gospel’s sake. No one can disagree that Paul has withstood unbelievable trials and hardships for the gospel, and surely the church at Corinth could see the vast…

2 Corinthians 11:1-15

As we continue this intense section of 2nd Corinthians, we open chapter eleven where Paul finds himself being forced to meet his arrogant opponents with some of his own bragging and self defense. These chapters are filled with comments about bragging and boasting, and it makes Paul very uncomfortable! Last week we discussed tearing down…

2 Corinthians 10:7-18

Personally, I believe that God’s people should be the wisest on planet earth! “Fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom” (Proverbs 9:10). Yet, in some ways Christians can be the most susceptible to being taken advantage of! Why is that? Christians who have the wrong perspective are easily led astray to their own…

2 Corinthians 10:1-7

How many times have you been confronted with arguments like “The Bible is full of contradictions.” Or how about “God is just a myth created by man to explain the world.” With the growth of social media and the global internet, you can watch someone make a very convincing argument for the flatness of the…

2 Corinthians 9:1-15

As we cover 2nd Corinthians chapter 9 today, we finish the discussion of Paul’s relief offering for the hurting Jerusalem church. That means one final week talking about generosity. We have a generous God and it is really impossible to appreciate His grace to us and to not express generosity to others. Paul is going…

2 Corinthians 8:8-24

If you have been around the church scene for any length of time, I would imagine you have experienced “pressured giving”. Have you? Have you, or someone you know, been turned off because the church is “just after our money?” I am so thankful that I don’t have to present to you a “law and…
