2 Corinthians 1:1-11
Rev. Mark G. Johnston - It’s evident from Paul’s writings to the church at Corinth that the people there had some very wrong-headed expectations of what the Christian Life should be. Paul had suffered greatly in his travels, but made every effort in every church to show them that the God he served is truly The God of All Comfort.
Rev. Mark G. Johnston - The apostle Paul refers to the Galatians as "My children, with whom I am again in labor until Christ is formed in you." We who claim to be Christians should reflect the attributes of Christ, into whose likeness we are being transformed. We are no longer bound by the Law, but sons and heirs of His Kingdom.
Rev. Richard “Rico” Tice - Have you ever thought about the story of the Prodigal Son, in Luke chapter 15, and realized that the author is holding up a mirror and expecting the readers to recognize themselves, no matter how they feel about the story? It’s a tale of two people groups, and a tale of two sons.
