Rev. Samuel Wirgau, pastor of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Harrold & Trinity Lutheran Church in Iowa Park, Texas, studies 2 Corinthians 4:17-18 on today’s episode: “For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.” Rev. Wirgau talks about Christian affliction and what it’s preparing us for, what the weight of glory is, and the things that are seen and unseen.
“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.
