Galatians 5:13-18

Being human we are born with certain default settings that drive us to think in certain ways. When we become a Christian a war starts between a new nature seeking to establish a beachhead and take over and the old regime that wants to stay in control.

Galatians 4:21-5:12

More times than we would probably like to admit, we slip into legalism. It can happen when God takes too long to answer a prayer, or answers in a way we don\'t expect. We take over the reigns, and it\'s a mistake!

Galatians 3:27-4:20

Are you happy with the family you grew up with? Chances are you aren\'t and that even now your vision of family is tainted. But what if you could have the perfect family and perfect relationships? Believe it or not, it is possible, with a family you have been invited to join.

Galatians 3:1-26

If we\'re not supposed to follow the law to please God, then what is its purpose? Do we ignore it altogether? Paul wants the Galatians to understand the two main purposes of the law.

Galatians 2:1-21

What do you rely on for how you behave? That might seem like a simple question but who and what influences you can mean the difference between relying on your own abilities or falling on the grace of Jesus. The answer is simple: die!

Galatians 1:1-23

Without attention and energy, we humans will default back to our flesh pleasing ways even after coming to Jesus. That\'s where the lie of legalism is so pervasive. Paul begins his battle against legalism by contrasting human achievement with grace.

2Corinthians 13:1-13

Too often as Christians we take short cuts to maturity. In reality the only way to become complete is to let the Lord take \r\nyou through difficulty and make you seem to \"fail.\" In the process He builds life and a character in you that will lead you into His kingdom.

2Corinthians 12:11-21

Many times we as Christians live our lives in the dark. We think we are reasonably good people trying our best. But our past, our associations, the flesh, and the culture around us, conspire to blind us to many things that are not like the Lord going on in our lives. Paul wants the Corinthians to wake up, not so he can punish but so that he can spur them on to real growth - with their eyes wide open.

2Corinthians 11:16-12:13

This question haunts many of us, especially as Christians. We think that things should go well if we are blessed of the Lord. When bad things happen, even seemingly disconnected things like losing a job or getting into an accident, we wonder why? Paul wondered this too, but provides a wonderful answer that will change your outlook on life.

2Corinthians 11:1-15

There are at least three ways that the enemy, working inside the church, moves Christians away from sincere faith and fidelity to the Lord Jesus. Learn what they are and how to spot and avoid them as Paul lays down the gauntlet against the false teachers in Corinth.

2Corinthians 10:1-18

It is human nature to compare ourselves to one another. We do it all of the time very naturally and almost without noticing it. That\'s what was happening in Corinth and it was giving the Corinthians a false impression about who to trust.

2Corinthians 9:1-15

What happens when you give of your time, talents, and money? Many ministries teach that you will receive a material blessing for material giving. I think they completely miss the mark. Paul, in this chapter, sets out a wonderful pattern of the true result of giving.

2Corinthians 8:1-24

What motivates you to give? The Corinthians had an easy time setting unrealistic giving goals that set them up for failure, but a hard time giving in a way that released the gift to God and brought Him glory. In this chapter Paul gives us some valuable lessons in how to give freely and positively!

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.
