April 13, 2021 2 Corinthians 3:7-10

“Carried to the Table”- He carries us daily.  We have to ask and then let Him.

Paul is comparing the two covenants- old and new.  He lived under both covenants.  The old show our inability to follow the law on our own.  It is a ministry of death.  The new covenant is grace and forgiveness for all through faith in Christ.  Christ is our atonement, he paid the price for our sins.

Who you spend time with is who you will be.  You can’t be more like somebody if you don’t spend time with them.

Why do we go to church?  To stir each other up and encourage one another. Leprosy is like sin in our lives.  Leprosy is a deadly, flesh eating disease.  That is what sin is doing to us. Go to Jesus with confidence.  He is waiting for us to come humbly to Him.  He will take…

April 6, 2021 2 Corinthians 3:4 Sufficiency in God

We are not sufficient in and of ourselves.  Our sufficiency is from God.  An example is the provision of manna each day in the book of Exodus.  Manna was physical sustenance and seeking Him first each day provides our spiritual sustenance. The Word is referred to as water, something critical to our survival.  We need…

Our Testimony Do we believe in our testimony like we believe in others’?  Do we share it?  Our testimony is not meant to be kept to ourselves, it is meant to be shared.  In sharing our testimony, the testimony grows.  A testimony does not have to be radical to be shared or important.  Different testimonies…

Mar 27, 2021 Get Out of the Boat

How do you see God? What is your perspective of Him?  Our perspective will determine if we stay in the boat or step out in faith.  Don’t stay in the boat. No Fear = No Courage God comes through when our strength is not enough. Encourage one another when we stumble and fall instead of…

Our Actions and Our Works Be an aroma that attracts others so we can then point them to Him.  Smell is a strong sense.  It has less to do with what we do and more to do with how we do it. The same aroma is sweet to one and bitter to another.  Plant, water…

Get Your Mind Right Part 1 Sit, Walk, Stand Who are you? Chosen, adopted, accepted, child of God.  You can only stand by knowing who you are, which we find in Eph. 1-2. We are His ambassadors.  You are not what you do.  Live out who you are. We are between already and not yet….

Who are you?  Do you keep your word?  Let your yes be yes and your no be no.  Don’t be double minded. Actions speak louder than words. Ask God what you need to change and be willing to make those changes.
