2Corinthians 7:2-16

Taking criticism is one of the hardest things for us humans. When it comes to God\'s critique of our lives, and areas He needs to touch, we often react with our natural human defenses. But Paul in addressing the subject with the Corinthian church, gives us a wonderful pattern of how to receive criticism from God and how to respond in a way that is very affirming.

2Corinthians 6:14-7:1

Often we enter into partnerships without thinking of the consequences for either us or those that we influence. Though we are not to withdraw from this world, we need to be careful when we entangle ourselves in the values of this age. Today we examine being in the world while not being of the world.

2Corinthians 6:1-13

There are three questions each Christian should ask themselves when it comes to deciding just how far to go in serving the Lord. They are not easy questions, but your answers will reveal much about yourself. In 2 Corinthians 6, Paul gives us a clear choice and a wonderful path if we choose wisely!

2Corinthians 5:11-21

Just how did Jesus pay for your sins? To understand this will give you a new appreciation for just how bad evil is, how good God is, and the value of what Jesus did for you on the cross and bears for you each and every day. It also makes our job description as a Christian easier to understand and fulfill.

2Corinthians 5:1-11

One of the worst pieces of mail you can receive comes with three little letters in the return address: IRS. Getting audited is like going to the dentist without the novocaine. As troubling as it may seem, an even more important audit is coming for all of us. The good news is that you can affect what happens in that audit. Plus, the promise of a new style body free from the constraints and temptations of this life also comes with that audit!

2Corinthians 4:1-18

Are you real? That might seem like an obvious question but consider the lengths you go to in order to present yourself as \'all together\' to your friends and brothers and sisters. Being impressive by appearance can actually impede both your growth in the Lord and hinder healing and growth in the lives of those around you. Learn the difference between being super cool or super real. It\'s a challenging but life-changing message.

2Corinthians 3:1-18

We often measure our success by how closely we stick to a set of expectations - whether on the job, at home, or in our walk with the Lord. We do good, we feel good - we do bad, we feel bad. But measuring success is really much different in a relationship with Jesus. Paul talks about that as well as how to measure competency to minister.

2Corinthians 2:1-17

How do respond when someone hurts you? Is it with veiled hatred and open contempt? The Apostle Paul had to deal with just such a situation and how he handled it can help us to deal with pain in a godly way.

2Corinthians 1:12-24

Often times we think that it\'s the big things that break apart relationships. But in reality, it is many times little things misunderstood that turn into big splits, both of people and of churches. As we study 2Corinthians 1 today we\'ll learn the big misunderstanding between the apostle and the Corinthian church and how we can avoid misunderstanding each other.

Ephesians 1:3-19

Do you find yourself discouraged and unfruitful in your walk with Christ? The answer may be simpler than you thought. Pastor Steve Hopkins of Calvary Chapel Salem brings us the wonderful word of the riches you have in Christ.

2Corinthians 1:1-11

Why do we go through hard times? Is it because God is not pleased with us? Is it that we just must suffer in order to really be deserving of God\'s grace? Though the reasons might be many (and those two are not among them), Paul gives us one of the most important reasons why suffering comes into our lives has he prepares the Corinthians to receive some hard advice from their spiritual father.

John 20:1-21:19

For some of us, the resurrection of Jesus Christ is a reminder, not of the victory over death, but the death of victory in our lives. We fear really relishing in the resurrection because of our own failures, fears, and weaknesses. If that\'s you, then I\'ve got some really good news for you!

Matthew 27:1-68

This week marks a special day in the church calendar and in the history of mankind. It\'s the day that our rescuer finally came out from hiding in plain sight. Today Pastor Tom Fuller will study why it is so important than you actually go into hiding once He\'s revealed.

1Corinthians 16:1-24

Often times as a Christian we think that what we do only affects us. In reality the body of Christ is an intertwined unit and who we are and what we do does indeed impact others for good or not. With that in mind, the Apostle Paul gives some parting but very important advice on how to live a maturing life in Christ.

1Corinthians 15:35-58

Do you ever hear those commercials for beds where they are giving big discounts on last year\'s model when the only difference is the fabric? As we study the second half of 1st Corinthians 15, we will look at our new model of resurrected body. But it\'s far more than just a change on the surface. What does looking forward to that model change mean to us as we live in this life\'s model?

1Corinthians 15:1-34

The resurrection of Jesus Christ is at the very heart of Christianity. If there was no resurrection then there is no Christianity. Period. Want to know why it is so important? Paul\'s got that answer.

1Corinthians 14:1-40

There is a great deal of controversy today about the use of spiritual gifts in the body of Christ. Many more charismatic denominations feature 1st Corinthians 14 as a way of encouraging the use of spiritual gifts, but a close reading of the passage doesn\'t seem to follow with that we see practiced--the opposite in fact. Today we\'ll try to bring some understanding of the proper role of the Spirit in the church.

1Corinthians 13:7-13

As we come to the end of our series on love we learn that true love \'goes the distance.\' Love does not have limits, nor will it ever end. So how do you get this love flowing through your life? We also learn that a person who wants to mature in their faith will want to grow in true love.

1Corinthians 13:5-6

When it comes to studying about love, it is easy to feel under the pile because no human can measure up to the standard of love in 1 Corinthians 13 - and that\'s because it is God\'s standard. Thanks be to God that he makes us able, as we give our lives, hopes, desires, attitudes, and actions over to His Holy Spirit!

1Corinthians 13:4-5

If you think you understand what real love is, think again. 1 Corinthians 13 is not a bunch of feel goodisms, but delves deeply into the character of a mature person in Christ. Are you ready?
