The Wisdom of the Cross (Good Friday)

1 Corinthians 1:18-2:5 18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is written: “I will destroy the wisdom of the wise;    the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.” 20 Where is the wise person? Where is the teacher of the law? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 21 For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom…

Understanding and Evaluating the Church

1 Corinthians 3:1-17 1 Brothers and sisters, I could not address you as people who live by the Spirit but as people who are still worldly—mere infants in Christ. 2 I gave you milk, not solid food, for you were not yet ready for it. Indeed, you are still not ready. 3 You are still worldly. For since there is jealousy and quarreling among you, are you not worldly? Are you not acting like mere humans? 4 For when one says, “I follow Paul,” and another, “I follow Apollos,” are you not mere…

The Resurrection (Easter)

1 Corinthians 15:1-6, 17-26, 30-32 1 Now, brothers and sisters, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand. 2 By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain. 3 For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to…

The Gospel and Singleness

This week, we ask how the gospel informs singleness.  The Bible teaches that singleness is a unique gift in that it grants the individual the opportunity to remain fully devoted to the Lord without the additional relational responsibilities of marriage.  Whatever our relationship status, it is important to remember that God is able to use us in a way that is pleasing to Him.   Discussion Questions How do you generally view singleness?  Positively or negatively? Do you often find yourself…

God’s Building Plan

1 Corinthians 3:10-17 In this sermon, we talk about the opportunity that we have as a church to purchase property. The discussion is framed out by Paul’s reminder that God does not live in temples built by human hands (Acts 17:24). God’s main building project is a people in which his Spirit dwells. He is the architect, we (the church) are his plan, and anyone who would work on the church is accountable to God. We must take care, then,…
