Rev. Chris Hull from Zion Lutheran Church in Tomball, Texas, studies 2 Corinthians 5:14a on today’s episode: “ For the love of Christ controls us.” Rev. Hull explains the difference between being controlled and being compelled. We will learn how even though we are conceived enslaved to sin the love of Christ, the Gospel of forgiveness, creates in us a new person who is free to love their neighbor and desires to serve the LORD above all things.
“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.
