    The Study Of First and Second Corinthians 2 Timothy 3:16 (KJV) 16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: First Corinthians The church in Corinth was begun by Paul on his second missionary more

    Longing for home.

    TOWARDS A NEW CREATION. 2 Corinthians 5:6-17. Having spoken of the impermanence of the ‘tent’ of this body, and the ‘eternity’ of our dwelling in heaven (2 Corinthians 5:1), the Apostle Paul began to mix his metaphors, yearning to be ‘clothed upon’ with ‘our habitation which is from more

  • Patterns And Motivations For Giving

    based on 8 ratings

    How can we not be generous when Christ gave His very Self? We give thanks to God for His indescribable gift.

    2 Corinthians 8:1-12. By the grace (charis = gift) of God, the Macedonian church had been particularly forward in giving (2 Corinthians 8:1-4). Paul challenged the Corinthians to demonstrate their love by also sharing in this grace of giving (2 Corinthians 8:7-8). The pattern of Christ's more

  • We Do Not Lose Heart

    Contributed by Christopher Holdsworth on Apr 15, 2018
    based on 3 ratings

    While God is preparing us for this house, Jesus is preparing this house for us.

    WE DO NOT LOSE HEART. 2 Corinthians 4:13-5:1. The first thing that strikes us about this passage is the continuity between the Old Testament and the New. Paul finds his warrant to preach embedded in the book of Psalms: ‘I believed, therefore I spoke. I am greatly afflicted’ (Psalm 116:10). more

  • The Hope Of Glory

    Contributed by Christopher Holdsworth on Feb 24, 2019
    based on 4 ratings

    But we all, with unveiled face beholding as in a mirror the glory of the Lord, are being transformed into the same image from glory to glory, as by the Spirit of the Lord.

    THE HOPE OF GLORY. 2 Corinthians 3:12-18; 2 Corinthians 4:1-6. Opening this passage at 2 Corinthians 3:12, we are compelled to ask: What is the “hope” that Paul speaks of here? The context seems to suggest that it is the ‘hope of glory’ (cf. Colossians 1:27). In 2 Corinthians 3:7-11, the more

  • The Ministry Of Reconciliation

    Contributed by Christopher Holdsworth on Dec 27, 2013
    based on 4 ratings

    The need for reconciliation arises because of our estrangement from God on account of our sin. The mediator of reconciliation is God. The cost of reconciliation is the death of Christ. The result of reconciliation is a new relationship with God.

    THE MINISTRY OF RECONCILIATION. 2 Corinthians 5:16-21. This passage directly confronts us with the subject of reconciliation. It requires spiritual thinking: no longer regarding people from a worldly point of view - “according to the flesh” - and certainly not regarding Christ from a worldly more

  • Letters Of Recommendation

    based on 6 ratings

    Ministers are just postmen, delivering a message of instruction from God... What kind of letters of Christ are we?

    LETTERS OF RECOMMENDATION. 2 Corinthians 3:1-6. Amongst the many difficulties which the Apostle Paul faced in relation to the church which he had founded in Corinth was the existence of self-styled super-apostles who were nothing but peddlers, “making gain by corrupting the word of God” (2 more

  • A Building Fit For God

    Contributed by Christopher Holdsworth on Oct 15, 2016
    based on 18 ratings

    Resting on the sure foundation of the proclamation of the Cross of Christ, as opposed to worldly wisdom.

    A BUILDING FIT FOR GOD. 1 Corinthians 3:10-11; 1 Corinthians 3:16-23. The Apostle Paul refers to the church as God’s ‘building’ (cf. 1 Corinthians 3:9). This applies not only to the church at Corinth, but to ‘all who in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord’ (cf. 1 Corinthians more

  • The Grace Of Giving

    Contributed by Christopher Holdsworth on May 5, 2018
    based on 3 ratings

    The pattern of Christ's giving (of Himself) is the paradigm for our (financial) giving.

    THE GRACE OF GIVING. 2 Corinthians 8:7-15. 1. The example of the Macedonians (2 Corinthians 8:1-5). (1) By the grace of God, the Macedonian churches (Philippi and Thessalonica) had been particularly forward in giving. (2) Their gift was given out of poverty: like that of the more

  • Follow My Leader

    Contributed by Christopher Holdsworth on Apr 28, 2018
    based on 4 ratings

    Receive not the grace of God in vain.

    FOLLOW MY LEADER. 2 Corinthians 6:1-13. In his earlier letter, Paul had spoken of himself and others as ‘God’s fellow-workers’ (1 Corinthians 3:9). The word for “fellow-workers” gives us our English word, ‘synergy’, which speaks of a combined effort, a co-operation with God if you will. It more

  • Passing The Light

    based on 3 ratings

    Finding grace in adverse circumstances to pass the torch of the gospel on to others.

    PASSING THE LIGHT. 2 Corinthians 4:5-12. Paul had been concerned by some self-made ‘ministers’ who were nothing better than peddlers ‘making gain by corrupting the word of God’ (2 Corinthians 2:17). Paul and his fellow-ministers, by contrast, were neither dishonest nor manipulative. They more

  • Reconciliation, And Grace To Follow.

    Contributed by Christopher Holdsworth on Feb 2, 2022
    based on 3 ratings

    Our reconciliation with God is made possible by the grace of God through the work of Christ. Having been reconciled, we are made the righteousness of God in Him. We are enabled, by the same grace of God, to follow God in the way of righteousness.

    RECONCILIATION, AND GRACE TO FOLLOW. 2 Corinthians 5:20-21; 2 Corinthians 6:1-10. As an ambassador for Christ, Paul was pleading with the Corinthians - on behalf of Christ - that they go on being reconciled to God (2 Corinthians 5:20). We may feel that this is unnecessary: if we are ‘called more

    GRACE SUFFICIENT. 2 Corinthians 12:2-10.
