First, Love: The Original Plan

2 Corinthians 5:11-6:1  (ID: 0119)

Marriage is a serious covenant relationship for God’s people—one that often clashes with modern notions about convention or convenience. With specific application to seeking marital harmony, Alistair Begg delves into the Apostle Paul’s teaching to the Corinthians about the Church’s ministry of reconciliation. Only after we grasp the wonder of Jesus’ sacrifice, which rescues us from alienation to reconciliation with God, can we learn to forgive and be reconciled with our wives or husbands.

The Ministry of Reconciliation

11Therefore, knowing the fear of the Lord, we persuade others. But what we are is known to God, and I hope it is known also to your conscience.
