2 Corinthians

I do not want what is yours, but you

I do not want what is yours, but you

As Paul prepares to visit Corinth a third time he is at pains to let them know that in coming to them again, the only reason he wants to come at all is because he genuinely and truly loves them.  This sermon explores the basis and power for Paul’s rich love and grace towards the church in Corinth, even in weakness, and the way this shapes and transforms our relationships with one another.  

Riches and poverty

Riches and poverty

The statistics are as significant as they are surprising - nearly half the parables of Jesus deal with issues to do with money and wealth, and fully 10% of the verses in the New Testament are about the same subject. For Jesus, how we deal with our money and wealth really matters. In this sermon, the first of a short series, we look at 2 Cor 8, and see how Paul leads the Corinthians church and us - to be a 'centre of excellence' in Christian stewardship.
