All Things New, a Study on
by Kelly Minter
Taught by Amber David & Tavia Wilson
When Paul wrote to the church at Corinth, he was writing to people in a city that had many similarities to our own modern cities today…” a melting pot of electrifying cultural experiences to be had, along with the myriad pitfalls of spiritual depravity.” He encouraged the Christians in Corinth, and he encourages us today, to remember that because of what Jesus has done for us, our old life has gone and our new life in Christ has come.

I'm excited about the study All Things New because it is challenging me out of my comfort zones. Whether it is taking steps to heal a broken relationship or viewing the struggles in my life as a means for growth, I feel motivated to shift my perspective and mindset from a worldly view to an eternal view. I want to display God's promise that because of my trust and faith in Him, the old ways of my life have passed away, and I am a new creation! ~ Tavia
I always get great satisfaction out of marking off another book of the Bible from the list of books I’ve really taken my time with, and soaked in. Of course, this kind of study always required some work and change, but, oh the joy it brings! Adding Second Corinthians to this list through the “All Things New” study is especially sweet as it contains my favorite, life-changing verse. And worry not! Second Corinthians in no way plays second fiddle to First Corinthians. We will be reminded that God is “the God of all comfort,” that “Christ always leads us in triumphal procession,” that we as believers are the fragrance of death to those who are perishing and life to those who are being saved. We will be encouraged that though our outer selves are wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day, and that our momentary afflictions are preparing us for an eternal weight of glory beyond comparison…and those are only my highlights from the first 4 chapters (and don’t reference my favorite verse)! You will come to love the author of the study, Kelly Minter, as your guide in our video sessions and weekly homework. She is delightful, wise, and challenging. Join Tavia and I as we wade slowly through this book of incredibly practical and relevant refreshment for our souls. It will be time well spent. ~ Amber
