Chapter 8 deals with food offered to idols but the application is a beautiful thing that we can put on so many aspects of our walk with Christ. Knowledge can be beneficial but as we serve our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ love is the most important thing we can give and it is the way that we are identified by God as his children.
Today we finish up chapter 27 and Paul continues to encourage people to "Stay as you were before Christ called you". The importance of serving Christ in any situation and circumstances is stressed significantly as marriage and singleness continue to be a topic of discussion.
Chapter 7 deals directly with sexual purity. Abstinence from it, engaging in it, how to handle it inside of marriage and how to best glorify God in the pursuit of holiness in dealing with sex. It's quite the chapter. Join us as we break it down.
Welcome back as we finish up chapter 6 and Paul's instruction on sexual sin. No other sin is so commonly struggled with among people and no other sin so clearly affects us. It is a sin against our own bodies which is the temple of the Holy Spirit.
Today we will cover the first half of chapter 6 as Paul speaks of the importance of disputes being handled among the believers inside the church. As our society relies so much on laws and legal issues, it is important to rely on fellow believers to help us settle disputes. Join us today to see the reasons Paul gives for this.
Chapter 5 changes gears as Paul begins to address some of the sins this young church is struggling with. Hold on to your hats because you might be surprised at what is lurking inside of the early church!
Welcome back as we cover chapter 4 and the relationship between Paul and the Church in Corinth. The people of the church are making a lot of bold claims and Paul uses a healthy helping of sarcasm to prove his point while also expressing his love and concern for them and their walks with Christ.
Today we are discussing chapter 3 as Paul talks about spiritual maturity. Are you a spiritual infant or a mature believer. The Corinthians were mistaken and Paul spoke truth to them. We should all be open to growing in our spiritual maturity.
In chapter 2 Paul talks about not relying on the wisdom of the world and instead relying on the wisdom of God. There was such a huge desire for education and intelligence among the people of Corinth that Paul wanted to make sure and keep the message of the Gospel pure and simple. The Holy Spirit should be the source of all the wisdom that a follower of Christ needs.
Today we finish up chapter 1 and begin talking about some of the problems the church in Corinth was dealing with. Paul pleads with them to turn from arguing and be unified with one another!
