2 Corinthians 3:7-11

As we continue in 2nd Corinthians chapter 3, and continue to be exposed to important truths we need to remember an important foundational fact about what we learn each week from God’s word. The Bible was authored by the creator of the universe and the creator of mankind. He just knows how things work because…

2 Corinthians 3:1-6

It was the apostle Paul who said to the Corinthian church in 1 Corinthians 4: “For you can have 10,000 instructors in Christ, but you can’t have many fathers. For I became your father in Christ Jesus through the gospel.” Paul had sacrificed and labored so they could be saved. And now, in 2 Corinthians…

2 Corinthians 2:5-17

We pick up in 2nd Corinthians chapter 2, verse 5 as we make our way through this very personal and very revealing exchange between Paul and the people in Corinth. This next section offers a “case study” of sorts. Paul discusses a very specific situation involving an unnamed individual in the Corinthian church. The person’s…

2 Corinthians 1:12-2:4

As we continue our journey through the New Testament, today we open up to the first chapter of 2nd Corinthians and get started into this very personal letter between the Apostle Paul and the Corinthian church.

1 Corinthians 16:12-24

How many of you grew up with a mother who insisted upon you finishing everything on your plate before you left the table? I heard a story about a family where this was the case, and at least one of the kids would fall asleep at the table, determined not to finish the green beans!…

1 Corinthians 16:1-11

Having just spent the past five weeks mulling over and pondering the heavenly reality of resurrection, we now take the truth of 1st Corinthians 15:58 — our labor in the Lord is not in vain — and put some skin on it! In chapter 16 Paul gives some personal and practical insight into church life.…

1 Corinthians 15:50-58

As we finish 1st Corinthians chapter 15, Paul brings his discussion of resurrection to a victorious crescendo and climax! Death and the grave do not have the last word! Like a lion with no teeth, a snake with no venom, or a bee with no sting, death has been stripped of its power and the…

Easter 2019: 1 Cor 15:35-49

On this Palm Sunday we continue in our study of 1st Corinthians 15 – The Resurrection chapter – with Part III in our series. As we would expect, this next section is packed with essential truth. How we think and how we understand really does dictate how we live. Our true theology is evident in…
