The Letters of Paul
The Church in Corinth was a handful for Paul. Here are a few of the issues he had to deal with. They are still surprisingly relevant.
In this chapter Paul challenges the Corinthian church, saying, “Examine yourselves.” We’re going to try to do the same, examine ourselves, noting that real Christianity involves both right Christian beliefs and real Christian experience marked by authenticity, maturity and unity with other believers in Jesus.
Sometimes we feel we cannot serve the Lord as well as we should due to physical infirmities or limitations. At other times discouragement may hinder us when people don’t respond well to our love and sacrifice for them. Paul dealt with both of these potential obstacles as he poured out his heart and life for the Corinthian church. Still, he gave them 100% because ultimately it was Jesus that he was serving.
This one is from May 2. Jake Medlong continues our series through 1 & 2 Corinthians. This was his first time teaching in the gym at Horizon Central on Sunday morning, but it won’t be his last.
