Who Am I In Christ and Why Am I Here? #3 - Leaky Saucepan - Threadbare Tent - 2 Corinthians 4:7-5:10

August 16th, 2009

A sermon on 2 Corinthians 4:7-5:10 by Michael Gange at Morning Church and Night Church on the 16th of August 2009.

Sermon outline:

  1. God's power is made obvious through human weakness (4:7)
    • It's always been this way:
      • Moses
      • Paul
      • Jesus
    • 'Weak' does not mean 'useless'
  2. God's power is made obvious through deliverance from hardship (4:8-9)
    • It has to be this way (4:10-11)
    • 'Impressive' does not mean 'effective'
  3. Persevere by valuing:
    • The spiritual over the physical (4:16)
    • The future over the present (4:17)
    • The invisible over the visible (4:18)
