"...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

"Looking up, they saw that the stone had been rolled back--it was exceedingly large." Mk. 16:4 Technically speaking, a person cold argue that all the eyewitnesses of the Resurrection were lying! It's an absurd argument, but it cannot be completely refuted. But there is one powerful witness to the Lord's Resurrection that could not lie, and can't be refuted. It's the stone that covered the tomb. If it could speak, and explain how it moved, it would prove the Resurrection beyond a shadow of a doubt. Let's take a look...

"If anyone is in Christ he is a new creation. The old is gone. Behold the new is come." We cannot move on in our study of 2 Corinthians until we reflect on this colossal verse; by far one of the greatest verses in all the Bible.

"Therefore, knowing the fear of the Lord, we persuade men." 2 Cor 5: 11 There is great shortage of 'the fear of the Lord' in our culture today; sadly, even among Christians. But fear off the Lord is "the beginning of wisdom". (Prov 9:10). It's the only antidote for the evils of our world (Prov 16:6). The Bible even calls it "greater than treasure" (Prov 15: 16). Surprisingly though, in this morning's text, we see that it comes part-and-parcel with a love for the lost. What does that mean? Let's take a look...

"For we walk by faith and not by sight." 2 Cor 5:7 It's one of the most important Truths in all the Bible. In fact, it's the 'point' of almost every story, every incident, beginning with the temptation of Man in the garden in Genesis, to the faithful, suffering believers in Revelation. We must "walk by faith and not by sight." Let's see what that means.  Message by Pastor Rod Schorr, Calvary Chapel Old Towne, Orange, CA From his series on 2 Corinthians: You: The Ultimate Survivor.

"...this tent that is our earthly home..." 2 Cor 5:1 "I have no idea what awaits me or what will happen when all of this ends," writes Albert Camus, the great existentialist philosopher. But isn't that the point of being a philosopher, to know what's going on? How wonderful to hear Paul say those words: "We know..."! And we certainly do!  Message by Pastor Rod Schorr, Calvary Chapel Old Towne, Orange, CA From his series: 2 Corinthians: You, the Ultimate Survivor.

"So then, we do not lose heart..." 2 For 4: 16 Judging by the great lengths to which Paul goes to explain his afflictions, it seems as if yet another accusation has been laid against him: "He suffers so much! Shouldn't a real Apostle be more victorious?" Oh, Paul's answer is wonderful for us all! Though afflictions abound, we need never lose heart!

"For we have this treasure in jars of clay..." 2 For 4:7 I love what A. E. Housman calls the human race in one of his poems: "proud and angry dust"! That brings to mind what Paul writes here in our text. Every Christian carries a great 'treasure' within himself; offered by God to all the world. But the Christian himself? He's a 'jar of clay'. What on earth does that mean? Let's take a look...

"...for the god of this world has blinded the minds of those who do not believe." 2 Cor 4: 4 "There are none so blind as those that will not see," Matthew Henry once so wisely observed. Our Scripture this morning is discussing just that. It is a blindness of the mind and it comes part-and-parcel with the choices we make to turn from our God and embrace the world.
