Sermon synopsis: “You’re going to find that there will be times when people will have no stomach for solid teaching, but will fill up on spiritual junk food - catchy opinions that tickle their fancy. They’ll turn their backs on truths and chase mirages.” (2 Tim 4:3-4 interpreted by Eugene Peterson ‘The Message’)

Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians had been a series of rebukes for their worldliness or carnality.

He writes his second letter to the Corinthians to clear up any misconceptions, to defend his apostleship and to reveal his heart to the church that he founded.

The New Covenant of Grace:
(1) is not always there to make us feel good - it will shine God’s light into our lives. Don’t be tempted to change God’s search-light for a spotlight!
(2) It isn’t a key to heaven’s vault – I don’t come to God for Him to do my bidding, but rather to honour Him.
(3) It’s a covenant where God places His valuable treasure in vessels of clay.
(4) It is not a license to behave just as we please. What did Paul mean when he wrote “He has made us competent as ministers of a new covenant—not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.” (2 Cor 3:6)
(5) The Old Covenant had instances of fading glory, but the New Covenant brings a lasting glory.
(6) It is a covenant where the veil is removed.

What has been done FOR US is of no value, until we allow God to do a work IN US.
