From 2 Corinthians 13:5, Pastor Steve looks at the test and the exam that Paul gave the church to make sure that they were not disqualified before God. Jesus said that many in that day will call Him Lord but He will say “depart from me, I never knew you.” For Paul to say that we can pass the test means that we can know that we are saved. In this message we will come to understand both the proposition of the Gospel and the experience of acceptance of that proposition by faith. The result is the indwelling Holy Spirit who changes our lives for good
As Paul instructed the church in Corinth he let them know what he tried to do for them and what they should do with his efforts. From this passage, 2 Corinthians 12:14-21, we will see clear instructions for both pastors and for church members.
2 Corinthians 12:7-10 paints a picture of God’s grace uniquely given to a man in great trouble. Yet, we tend to avoid and run from trouble. In this message you will see how Paul embraced the trouble only to find the greater grace of God and a new nearness of Christ.
2 Corinthians 10:7-11 From this familiar passage talking about casting down imaginations and every high thought and bringing them into captivity, Pastor Steve takes a look at the work of God in the salvation of sinners. Conversion is a spiritual battle that we get to be a part of when we seek to give out the gospel of Christ.
2 Corinthians 10 Paul addresses the church instructing us to make sure that when we give glory it needs to go to God. In his day, Paul wrote against the mutual admiration society who compared themselves among themselves. We are not to be like them but to do our best and give God the glory.
In 2 Corinthians 11 Paul wrote challenging the believers to not be drawn away by deceptive teachings from a single focus on Jesus Christ. In this message Pastor Steve addresses this passage for today’s Christ followers.
