Do Everything In Love (1 Cor 16:13-14)
As the Apostle Paul wraps up his letter to the Corinthian church it seems that v. 14 stands out as the key reality. It is love that will compel the church to be generous, love that will guide them to listen to and follow leadership, and love that will truly refresh others. Ultimately, it is love that will unite this church if they so choose.

    Eternal Makeover (1 Cor 15:35-58)
    In some way, shape or form, we will each be changed. Our bodies that we have now are designed for this world. God will give us new bodies. Therefore, we do not need to fear the future or worry about physical death. Knowing what is coming should free us to serve fully right now.

    Why Resurrection matters; even when it isn’t Easter
    Resurrection is important to anyone who follows Jesus. Resurrection is important to the whole of the Christian faith. The resurrection of Jesus, proves our faith. The resurrection of Jesus gives us hope. The resurrection of Jesus holds us accountable for how we live as we will one day see him face to face. The fact is you and I need resurrection.

    Decently and In Order (1 Cor 14)
    A local church is a unit and each person is a significant part of the whole. A local church is to operate from a heart motivation of godlike love. Therefore, it stands to reason that when a church gathers, that there is a clear sense of that love and unity throughout the time of meeting. When people who claim to know Jesus, have gatherings that are characterized by chaos and strife, then the love and unity Jesus called for is destroyed and outsiders will be chased away.

    “A More Excellent Way” (1 Cor, 12:31b-13:13)
    It is not always what someone does that makes an impact, but it is also the deep inner motivation that drives the act. If you have ever been upset that an act of kindness was not equally reciprocated, check your motive. If you have ever hoped that someone would notice your service in the church, check your motive. We learn today that the purest motive for the Christ follower is a God centered love.

    Many yet One (1 Cor. 12:12-31a)
    In an extended metaphor using the unique make-up of the human body the Apostle Paul makes the point that the local gathering of those who follow Christ should operate in the same way. Each individual part making its contribution to the good of the whole. Every person in a local church is important, and contributes to the health of the whole.

    “What’d ya get?” (1 Cor. 12:1-11)
    God can use anyone. When we come into a faith relationship with Jesus, the Holy Spirit enables each person to uniquely use their abilities to enhance the local church, the body of Christ. There was some confusion about this aspect of life in the Corinthian church and in many ways that hasn’t changed. We will seek to get a basic understanding of the scope and purpose of spiritual gifts today.

    Course Correction (1 Cor. 11:17-34)
    Have you ever felt left out? Have you ever experienced a time in which you knew that you were excluded due to your own social and economic status? While that reality exists in many places, it should never be experienced when we gather as a body of Christ followers. In Corinth, there was not level ground in the partaking of the Lord’s Supper and that needed serious correction.

    On Hats and Haircuts (1 Cor 11:2-16)
    This is one of the most confusing passages in all of Scripture. And yet maybe if we look not at the details but at the overall context we can gain some understanding. We will consider how we show honor to God and to one another, as we maintain order and decorum and see if we can’t learn from this section of God’s Word.

    Walking a Fine Line (1 Cor 10:23-11:1)
    This section of 1 Corinthians wraps up the conversation on freedom. It leaves us with questions to answer: How sensitive am I to others? How do I adjust to help them see God? What would I sacrifice for the good of another? And finally do people really see God in me? Hard questions we each must address as we strive to follow Jesus.
