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 He designed things to work a certain way! For instance, “God resists the proud and gives grace to the humble”. This is a consistent and trustworthy principle! Another well-known and clearly understandable truth is: “You reap what you sow.”
This passage in chapter three presents an absolutely phenomenal truth that I believe most Christians ignore completely. In fact, even our biology shows the reality of this principle, and neuroscientists are very excited about what they are discovering in this realm!
Friends of Calvary Chapel Fluvanna, our Christian lives are about so much more than a set of moral rules to memorize and observe. Rule-based living and church culture is far inferior to life in the Spirit that brings real change. How does that change happen? What is the principle? Why do some people come to church and see no real change and others see radical transformation of their lives?
Listen in as we understand this principle from the apostle Paul as he shares it with the Corinthian church.
