2 Corinthians (Program #34) – A New Creation in Christ Becoming God’s Righteousness (1)

By the end of chapter 4 in 2 Corinthians the apostle Paul was very matured in the Christian life. His being has been largely transformed to the extend that regardless of his outward circumstances he remained in the peace and rest of the Lord’s presence. Realizing that through the Spirit within him God was working through all things to form him and shape him according to His eternal plan.

Listen to his testimony in verse 16 and 17,  “Therefore we do not lose heart; but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day. For our momentary lightness of affliction works out for us, more and more surpassingly, an eternal weight of glory,

Surely this is the testimony of one who is longing to meet the Lord. Yet one thing remain in Paul’s spiritual journey is, as we will see in 2 Corinthians chapter 5, his longing to have his earthly body or tabernacle replaced with a heavenly one.

2 Corinthians (Program #33) – The Putting to Death of Jesus and the Renewing of the Inward Man (3)

2 Corinthians 4:10 says,  “Always bearing about in the body the putting to death of Jesus that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.”  Then in verse 16, the apostle Paul goes on to say “Therefore we do not lose heart; but though our outer man is decaying, yet our inner man is being renewed day by day.

The experience of the putting to death of Jesus results in the renewing of the inner man.  We are going to look at the putting to death of Jesus and what it means on today’s life study on 2 Corinthians.

Ephesians (Program #31) – To Be Strengthened into the Inner Man that Christ May Make His Home in Our Hearts

The apostle Paul offered two great prayers in Ephesians. The first in Chapter 1 was concerning vision even revelation that we would all see the mystery that had been hidden from the eternity past but was now been revealed to the holy apostles and prophets and also to us.

The second prayer, in Chapter 3 is a prayer for our experience because it’s not enough just to see the mystery of God’s purpose, we need to enter into the realm where it’s worked out and accomplished.  These are the two great prayers that the apostle Paul. And our focus today on the prayer for our experience.
