This is a Blog for those interested in following hard after His heart. Those willing to strive to live a moment by moment life as we go through the transformation process with Him. It is not an easy life but the Father expects each of us to become an offering for His pleasure. So, if this is you, then let’s journey together hand in hand. I am humbled that you have chosen to walk with me. Thanks!

Study 4 From The Book of 2 Corinthians Is: 2
Corinthians 3:1 – 4:6
The intruders at Corinth made much, we may
gather, of letters of recommendation which they carried (cf. Acts 18:27), and
may have said, or implied, that Paul did not possess such, though he was very
ready to comment himself (3:1).
1.In 3: 6-11 the old and new
covenants are contrasted (see note below). List the ways in which the new
covenant is shown to be superior to the old.
2.In this passage Paul describes
his own confidence in the work he is doing. What grounds for confidence does
the find (a) in the effects of preaching, and (b) in the nature of his gospel?
See 3:1-5; 4:1-6.
Note. 3:6. ‘the written code kills but the
Spirit give life’: Paul has condensed into these few words the teaching about
the law and the gospel which is expounded fully in Rom 7 and 8.
