Self-Examination | 2 Corinthians 13:1-6

Christians are called to truly examine whether they are in the faith. A true follower of Christ will show evidence of a transformed life as they walk in a personal relationship with Jesus.

Paul’s Open Heart | 2 Corinthians 12:14-21

Though many Corinthians opposed Paul and caused him suffering, Paul continued to gladly serve them and share with them the Gospel and love of Jesus Christ. Despite their actions, these people mattered to God, just as you and I matter to God.

Strength in Suffering | 2 Corinthians 12:7-13

Our prickly problems in life don’t need to be viewed as curses to be removed, but rather blessings to be received as we learn to lean more heavily on Jesus. Our sicknesses are not always a product of sin. Sometimes they are an allowance of God to produce a greater purpose in us.

Resisting or Resigned to Suffering? | 2 Corinthians 11:16-33

Paul urges the church to not allow themselves to be put back into the chains of bondage by the Law, but to live in the freedom that Jesus has given us by His death on the cross. In addition, we learn about the suffering that Paul endured for the sake of the Gospel. Jesus didn’t die on a cross to make our lives pleasant in this world.

The Weapons of our Warfare | 2 Corinthians 10:1-6

Our battle is not against people. Satan knows that if he can draw us into a battle of the flesh, then he’s got us right where he wants us. We are challenged to bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ and to love one another in meekness and gentleness.

The Hilarious Giver | 2 Corinthians 9:6-15

Pastor Brent shares the biblical view on giving. God is the ultimate giver who gave us His Son to save us, reconcile us, adopt us into His family, and cause us to be co-heirs with Christ. God’s people are not to give out of obligation, but cheerfully as worship to our God who has given us everything we need and more.

Administering The Gift | 2 Corinthians 8:16-9:5

Our zeal as Christians must be more than good intentions, rather, it needs to be carried to completion so that it may bear fruit both in our lives and in the lives of others. Giving is not to be a grudging affair, but one of gladness and gratefulness as we ministry to one another through our giving.
