Sunday, I’m preparing to preach on 2 Corinthians 5:16-21. The central thought of this passage seems to be v18. So take a look at that verse and chew on what that means to you personally.
Then, take a look at the rest of the passage (both before and after that verse), and ask yourself “What do I gain as a result of what I read in v18? Here’s one example to get you going:
- I am able to no longer view people from a worldly perspective. I have a new and different way to look at people. And for me “not regarding people according to the flesh” means that compared to the fleshly way I used to (or am tempted to) look at people (DESCRIBE), now I am able to look at them like _________ (DESCRIBE).
These might be good discussion starters as well.
