Living in Contrasts

Pastor Jon preaches on “Living in Contrasts” from 2 Corinthians 4:16-18.

2 Corinthians 4:16-18 (ESV)

So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.

Our acknowledgement of despair can exist with our future hope.

  • Charge – Don’t lose heart
  • Realities – momentary pressure
    • things seen
    • transient
  • Hope – eternal weight
    • things unseen
    • everlasting
