The Goal is Gospel Joy – 2 Corinthians Study 6

Cary Cox, from 2 Corinthians 1:23-2:4. Paul seeks to restore his relationship with the erring Corinthians. In this passage we see the difficult duty of a pastor, to deal with sin in the church. And we see the heart of a pastor, the spiritual and emotional investment in the lives of the believers. Our goal is to work together for each other’s joy in Jesus! But that requires us to confront each other when we go astray.

The Hard Work of the Gospel – Christ Our Life 8

Cary Cox, from Colossians 1:23 – 2:5. We are saved by grace, but saved to serve. Paul’s testimony gives us confidence that Christ is worth living for, suffering for, dying for. Don’t waste your life! Christ calls us to hard work in his gospel, for the church, for his glory!
