Jesus Guarantees God’s Promises

II Corinthians 1:15-22
Pastor Terry Wilcox


Have you ever broken a promise, or had one made to you broken?

Because I was confident of this, I wanted to visit you first so that you might benefit twice. I wanted to visit you on my way to Macedonia and to come back to you from Macedonia, and then to have you send me on my way to Judea. Was I fickle when I intended to do this? Or do I make my plans in a worldly manner so that in the same breath I say both “Yes, yes” and “No, no”?

II Corinthians 1:15-17

Paul was  and his conscience was .

v. 18 – Just as God is so, he and his partners. 

For the Son of God, Jesus Christ, who was preached among you by us—by me and Silas and Timothy—was not “Yes” and “No,” but in him it has always been “Yes.” For no matter how many promises God has made, they are “Yes” in Christ. And so through him the “Amen” is spoken by us to the glory of God.

II Corinthians 1:19-20

Christ says yes to all of .

Israel lived below their privileges because they continued to .

Jesus introduced the new covenant. 

Once you were alienated from God and were enemies in your minds because of your evil behavior. But now he has reconciled you by Christ’s physical body through death to present you holy in his sight, without blemish and free from accusation—

Colossians 1:21-22

Many Christians live below their privilege because they don’t grasp how Christ  God’s promises.

Think for a moment about partnership with .

One partner with all the , the other partner willing to  everything. 

The irony is that the weaker partner is not .  They have to gain!

Our contribution is  and .
