"If someone comes and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached..." 2 Cor 11: 4 "Oh what a goodly outside falsehood has," one of Shakespeare's characters complains. How surprising to find that observation way back in Shakespeare's day. But Paul observed it even in his day! This is the age-old battle for the Truth, where falsehood comes disguised as 'goodness' and 'light'. Let's take a look.

"When the measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves among themselves, they are not wise." 2 Cor 10:12 It is probably the greatest source of unhappiness today: "comparing". We measure our happiness, we evaluate our lives, we base our self-esteem on comparison with others. Worse yet, we use comparison to make excuses for our sins. Our Scripture this morning labels it bluntly: "unwise"!  Let's take a look... Message by Pastor Rod Schorr, Calvary Chapel Old Towne, Orange From his series: 2 Corinthians: You The Ultimate Survivor

"...for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty through through God for the pulling down of strongholds."  2 Cor 10: 4 Never ever minimize, dear Christian, what it took for you to be free in Christ at last. I took a painful death on a Cross, and the complete destruction of the "strongholds" that were holding you prisoner! And--praise God!--now that you are free, you've been equipped to handle "strongholds" as well. Let's take a look...

As irreversible as gravity! The law of sowing and reaping. There are bodies of water that never "give"; there is plenty of "inflow" but nothing flows out! Special names are reserved for such places: "Salton Sea", "Great Salt Lake", "Dead Sea"! And isn't it interesting that, even in our respiration, we must "give" if we want to "receive" and survive. Our Scripture this morning is telling us that the same is true for every Christian. Let's learn this priceless truth together!

"...so give proof before the churches of your love..." 2 Cor 8: 24 ESV Paul had been bragging about the corinthians Christians: how enthusiastic they were about that Jerusalem Offering! But that was a year ago and now it's time to collect the offering. What if things have change? What if passions have cooled and people are having second thoughts? Oh, it's "proof-time" in Corinth! Let's take a look... Message by Pastor Rod Schorr, Calvary Chapel Old Towne, Orange CA  From his series: 2 Corinthians: You The Ultimate Survivor.

"Though He was rich, yet for your sake, He became poor..." 2 Cor 8:9 It all began when ruthless persecution smote the Christians in Jerusalem. A few years later came terrible famine. That's when Paul came up with a brilliant inspiration: what if the non-Jewish Christians took up a collection? Yes! The "children" of the Gospel now blessing the spiritual "parents". It was an outlandish idea! And God has been using Christians to bless the world ever since!

"For Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regrets." 2 Cor 7: 10 NIV "Sorrow never comes too late and happiness too swiftly flies," is Thomas Gray's sad assessment of life. But isn't this Word of God refreshing? Not all sorrow is bad! Some sorrow is definitely needed; can't come soon enough, in fact! And you will never find true happiness without it. Let's dive in...

"Our heart is wide open...but you are restricted in your affections." 2 Cor 6: 11,12 Let's face it: we are living in an ever narrowing age! We confine ourselves to the iPhone and the web. We 'unfriend' people with a single click. We filter our news; we guard our 'safe space'. Worst of all, we tighten the confines of our worship and fellowship! And none of that...is like Christ.

"Therefore we are ambassadors for Christ, God making His appeal through us." 2 Cor 5:20 ESV Isn't it amazing? Christ has His "ambassadors" in every corner of the world! And you, year Christian, are one of them; if you are faithful to your Savior. What does it mean to be an "ambassador"? Well, the answer to that question can be challenging, unnerving and--oh!--so richly rewarding!

"...God who, through Christ, has reconciled us to Himself and has given us a ministry of reconciliation." 2 Cor 5: 18 Ever since Man's fall into sin, a great chasm yawns wide! it separates the human race from the God who loves us so! But what wonderful news we read in our Scripture this morning. God has been longing for that chasm to be bridged! His great desire is for you, and I, to be reconciled to Him!  Message by Pastor Rod Schorr, Calvary Chapel Old Towne, Orange, CA From his series on 2 Corinthians: You the Ultimate Survivor
