Title:  Living Together In Christian Unity
Scripture:  2 Corinthians 12:11-21

Description:  Paul's goal in writing to his friends is to deepen their faith. As he defends himself and his ministry against specific accusations, he puts forward an example of relating to the Corinthian church, where we find an encouragement to live a self-denying, unified life with brothers and sisters in Christ. The power to live like that comes from our identity in Christ since all of us sinners need a savior. Our purpose is to bring all glory of God.

Title:  Why to Give
Scripture:  2 Corinthians 8:1-15

Description:  One of the main reasons Paul wrote this letter was to urge the Corinthians to send money to impoverished Christians in Jerusalem. But his approach wasn't what you might expect. He doesn't scold them. He doesn't shame them. He just reminds them of God's grace to them.

The Temple of God - 2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1

Title:  The Temple of God
Scripture:  2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1

Description:  No one can live without hope. That's why Peter begins his letter with this profile of Christian hope--a secure hope because it begins and ends with God. Paul confronts Christians with a direct challenge to be holy--set apart from anything that stands against God. But that challenge is rooted in a precious, mind-bending promise. God has promised to live among his people.
