Rev. James Preus, pastor of Trinity Lutheran Church in Ottumwa, Iowa, studies 2 Corinthians 5:12 on today’s episode: “We are not commending ourselves to you again but giving you cause to boast about us, so that you may be able to answer those who boast about outward appearance and not about what is in the heart.” Rev. Preus teaches us about the conflict and false teachers facing the Corinthians and how we face the same things today. He shows from the text how we are given to boast in the LORD and not in ourselves like certain false teachers.
“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.
