Introduction:

I.   Paul models a Christ-like attitude toward the Corinthians. 2 Corinthians 10:1-2,6.

II.  We cannot use the world's weapons to achieve spiritual goals. 2 Corinthians 10:3.

III. Our weapons are Spirit-empowred todestroy stongholds. 2 Corinthians 10:4-5.

      A. What are the strongholds?

      B.  The weapon of the word of God (and prayer). Ephesians 6:17-18a, 
           Romans 1:16, John 8:32, John 17:17, 2 Timothy 4:1-2.

      C.  The weapon of a Christ-like character in word and deed. 
           2 Corinthians 2:14-17, 5:14-15, 6:4-7.

 

Questions for reflection:

  • How might we as a church be tempted to use worldly (fleshly) weapons/
    strategies to achieve spiritual ends?


  • What are the weaons of our warfare that are mighty?


  • How can we as a church and as individuals grow in using weapons more 
    skillfully?
