Week Eight Homework | Covenant 8-3 | Kay Arthur

Todays homework is all over 2 Cor:1-17 Hang on tight as we dive in head first and emerge our souls through to the tips of our toes.

Now let's discuss all the passages ...

vs. 3 tells us what was written on the tablets of stone but the Law in the Old Covenant. God tells us here that now His law is written on the tablets of our hearts.

When we parallel Jer 31 with this we find He sent the Spirit because He loves us. It all has to do with God cares for His people, He keeps His word and follows thru on commitments and this commitment was to fulfill the everlasting covenant.

vs. 6 Paul refers to the letter of the Spirit, that the Spirit gives life! The letter kills (old covenant).

vs. 8 The Spirit shines a radiance on the one who recieves.

vs. 9 The ministry of condemnation...referring to Jesus and the contrast to his death in order to send the Holy Spirit.

vs. 10 What had glory and fades away? refers to Jesus and his death glorified in order so the Spirit may be glorified even more because the Spirit was sent to live in us. The radiance shine will not fade if we continue to let the Spirit control our lives. What this is trying to say is that the old covenant has faded away and the new has been made complete through the Holy Spirit.

Note Card Verses:
2 Cor 12:9
"My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.

2 Cor 3:18
And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.

2 Cor 4:16-18
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

My head is pounding, girls go rest, be still and know that God is Who He says He is!
