About this Item

Second Corinthians Personal Study Guide is the core resource of January Bible Study. Order one for each participant.

What is the ministry of the church? Of a church leader? Of a church member? What does it take to minister effectively for Christ? What are the right motivations for doing ministry? How do you deal with critics in ministry?

These are pressing questions for the church today. They were no less pressing in first-century Corinth. Paul's Second Letter to the Corinthians could accurately be termed a handbook on church ministry. The apostle wrote the letter in response to specific problems that had developed in the congregation—problems that manifested themselves in attacks on his authority, motives, and methods as a minister. Paul's defense of his ministry in 2 Corinthians gives believers today insight into the nature and practice of Christian ministry.

This 2016 January Bible Study examines key topics such as the nature of ministry, the power for ministry, and the motivation for ministry. Adults will be reminded that ministry is the power of God working through them to accomplish His purposes. Adults will also realize that the foundation and focus of ministry is the gospel of Jesus Christ.
