Rev. Jeremiah Johnson, pastor of Glory of Christ Lutheran Church in Plymouth, Minnesota, studies 2 Corinthians 3:4-6a on today’s episode: “4 Such is the confidence that we have through Christ toward God. 5 Not that we are sufficient in ourselves to claim anything as coming from us, but our sufficiency is from God, 6a who has made us sufficient to be ministers of a new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit.” Rev. Johnson talks about worldly vs. divine confidence, the cult of personality pastors, and the letter vs. the Spirit.
“The New Covenant”is a mini-series on Sharper Iron featuring a step-by-step walk through 2 Corinthians 3-7:1, focusing on what it means to be Christians of the New Testament age, waiting for the glory of the world to come.
