THE LIGHT THAT IS JESUS CHRIST (2 Cor. 4:3-6)

THE LIGHT THAT IS JESUS CHRIST (2 Cor. 4:3-6)

February 27, 2012

Where can you find real truth? 

 

What are the absolute truths about right and wrong, good and evil?

 

The educational system and the liberal media would tell you that they are anything you want them to be, that there are no absolute truths about right and wrong.  But they are deceiving you.  People have been searching for the answers to these questions since the beginning of time. 

 

They have tried atheism.  Atheism teaches that all of this marvelous creation was just an accident, a random chance event.  There is no truth to be found in atheism.

 

They have tried philosophy.  Philosophy can teach you more and more about nothing, but there is no real truth to be found in philosophy.

 

They have tried false religions.  Satan absolutely loves false religion.  He is the master at making people believe just about anything you can imagine.  He would tell you that salvation can be found in ritual, ceremony, good works, and membership in a church.  Yet, there is no truth to be found in false religion.

 

So where can you turn to find truths in a dark and blinded world? 

 

In the light that is Jesus Christ.  He alone has the words of eternal life, the truth about right and wrong, love and grace, mercy and forgiveness.

 

Listen and rejoice as Paul describes how Satan has blinded the world to the light that is Jesus Christ in this verse-by-verse study of 2 Cor. 4:3-6.

THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD (2 Cor. 3:17 to 4:2)

The gospel of Jesus Christ is a gospel of grace. It is unique from the religions of the world in that it does not require a person to live by a set of rules to obtain salvation.

When other religions say do this, Christ says done.

Christ has already done all of the work for your salvation. All you have to do is call upon the name of Lord Jesus Christ and accept the salvation that He has provided. This is the message of the gospel of Jesus Christ that is preached by every Christian in the way they live their lives and the words that they say.

Rejoice as Paul tells us about God's grace and our release from the legalist's rules and rituals in this verse-by-verse study of 2 Cor. 3:17-4:2

THE MINISTRY IS SPIRITUAL, NOT LEGAL (2 Cor. 3:6-16)

Does your religion have you bound by a list of do's and don'ts? 

Is your eternal destiny decided by ritual ceremonies, membership in a certain church, or a faith based on the good that you do being more than the bad things you have done? 

There is a better answer.  There is a certain answer.  You can have a faith based on a personal relationship with God.  Not works, not rituals, not obeying certain rules, simply a relationship with the one true almighty God of the universe.  

Listen and rejoice as Paul tells us of the greater glory of the grace of God in this verse-by-verse study of 2 Cor. 3:6-16.

THE NEW TESTAMENT MINISTRY (2 Cor. 2:14 to 3:5)

THE NEW TESTAMENT MINISTRY (2 Cor. 2:14 to 3:5)

Do pastors get discouraged preaching week after week with no response to the invitation call? 

Do missionaries question if they are making any impact at all in a land that hates Christianity? 

Do Christians feel impotent when their family members reject their attempts at telling them about Christ? 

Of course, the answer is yes to all of these questions.  But Paul tells us in this verse-by-verse study of 2 Cor. 2:14 through 3:5 that we are ALWAYS  triumphant in our efforts in Christ to spread the savor, or the knowledge of Christ.  

Not just some of the time, but always and in all places. 

Listen and rejoice as Paul tells us how the ministry of the New Testament is victorious in Christ.
