Rev. Jeremiah Johnson, pastor of Glory of Christ Lutheran Church in Plymouth, Minnesota, studies 2 Corinthians 4:15 on today’s episode: “For it is all for your sake, so that as grace extends to more and more people it may increase thanksgiving, to the glory of God.” Rev. Johnson talks about the context of this verse and our tendency towards theodicy, what it means that the Gospel is for you, and how Thanksgiving is the disposition of mercy.
“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.
