2 Corinthians: Restoring harmony
One of the major themes of 2 Corinthians is reconciliation. False apostles had denigrated Paul’s reputation and enticed the Corinthian believers to doubt his sincerity, his message and even his God-given apostleship. But instead of reacting with anger, Paul reveals his humility and largeness of heart as he seeks to build bridges between himself and the church, expressing his love for them, his concern for their spiritual wellbeing, and the need for them to have confidence in his apostleship.
We face similar challenges today, but with God’s mighty help we too can demonstrate God’s love and forgiveness to the watching skeptical world as we work at being reconciled to one another.
Icebreakers, Bible readings, eye openers, discussion starters, personal application make this a rich resource for group or individual study.
