Rev. Adam Filipek, pastor of Holy Cross and Immanuel Lutheran Churches in Lidgerwood, North Dakota, studies 2 Corinthians 5:14b on today’s episode: “[For the love of Christ controls us], because we have concluded this: that one has died for all, therefore all have died.” Rev. Filipek teaches us that true love is more than a feeling, but a sacrifice, perfectly given in Christ Jesus. Jesus is the perfect sacrifice, but how can he be the sacrifice for so many? Listen as our guest shows us how Christ being true God and true man means that His sacrifice is more than enough to forgive all our sins and reconcile us to God the Father in and through Himself.
“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.
