Rev. Sean Daenzer, pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church in Great Bend & Peace Lutheran Church in Barney, North Dakota, studies 2 Corinthians 5:5-6a on today’s episode: “He who has prepared us for this very thing is God, who has given us the Spirit as a guarantee. So we are always of good courage.” Rev. Daenzer shows us from our text how we can take heart and be of good courage in the midst of the groanings and burdens of this age because of Christ who has prepared us through His own life, death, and resurrection, and given us the Holy Spirit, in Baptism, as a guarantee and down payment of the glory which awaits us in the resurrection.
“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.
