Mission Bible Study 5: Competent to Minister

Paul Stevens

Read 2 Corinthians 3:1-18.
1. How do you feel about being told that becoming a Christian means becoming a minister?

2. Read 2 Corinthians 3:1-18. In contrast to those who boasted about their letters of recommendation, Paul says the Corinthians are his letter (vv. 1-3). What sort of letter are they?

3. How do you respond to the idea that you may be the only letter from Christ that some people ever read?

4. In 2:16 Paul had asked, “Who is equal to such a task?” What answer does he give in 3:4-6? How could his answer encourage even the newest and humblest member of God’s family?

5. According to Paul, how does our ministry under the New Covenant contrast with ministry under the Old (vv. 3-6; see also Jeremiah 31:31-34)?

6. How does Paul demonstrate that ministry under the New Covenant is more glorious than ministry under the Old (v. 7-11)?

7. What does verse 18 reveal about the process and goal of our lives as Christians under the New Covenant?

8. What evidence do you see of this glorious transformation (metamorphosis) in your life?

9. Paul speaks of our confidence (v. 4), boldness (v. 12) and freedom (v. 17). Why should each of these characterize our New Covenant ministry?

10. How has this passage encouraged you to feel competent to minister as a disciple of Jesus?
