2 Corinthians 4:7-18 (Sunday evening reading)
What is the ‘treasure’ that Paul is referring to? – v7
How would you describe this ‘all-surpassing power’, and what is it for?
What do you think Paul means by carrying in our bodies the death of Jesus? – v10
How do you understand, ‘I believed; therefore I have spoken’, v13 (also Ps 116:10), and how do you put it into practice?
How would you describe your certainty in the resurrection (Jesus’ and yours) to an unbeliever? – v14
‘Grace that is reaching more and more’ suggests Church growth. What should be our response when someone believes? – v15
Can you think of a circumstance where we may respond to a new believer like the older son in Luke 15:11-32?
Would you say that you are being inwardly renewed each day? And if so, how do you know, and in what way? – v16
How do we fix our eyes on things that are unseen? – v18
