Theme: Church Life
Thesis: You Are Living For Whom?
Scripture Text: II Corinthians 5:14-17 (next week: II Corinthians 5:18-21)
I. Die - v. 14
II. Live - v. 15-17
Jesus answered and said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
ROMANS 6:8, 11
Now if we have died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him.
Even so consider yourselves to be dead to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus.
For not one of us lives for himself, and not one dies for himself; for if we live, we live for the Lord, or if we die, we die for the Lord; therefore whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s. For to this end Christ died and lived again, that He might be Lord both of the dead and of the living.
I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.
SCRIPTURE TEXT—II CORINTHIANS 5:14-17
For the love of Christ controls us, having concluded this, that one died for all, therefore all died; and He died for all, so that they who live might no longer live for themselves, but for Him who died and rose again on their behalf. Therefore from now on we recognize no one according to the flesh; even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him in this way no longer. Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.
