1 Corinthians 15:50-58

As we finish 1st Corinthians chapter 15, Paul brings his discussion of resurrection to a victorious crescendo and climax! Death and the grave do not have the last word! Like a lion with no teeth, a snake with no venom, or a bee with no sting, death has been stripped of its power and the…

Easter 2019: 1 Cor 15:35-49

Easter Sunday 2019 celebration! We’ve prepared for this Sunday by diving deeply into the “Resurrection chapter” of 1st Corinthians 15 for the last several weeks. Today we celebrate the resurrected savior and continue our study in this rich and important chapter to our faith!

1 Corinthians 15:20-34

On this Palm Sunday we continue in our study of 1st Corinthians 15 – The Resurrection chapter – with Part III in our series. As we would expect, this next section is packed with essential truth. How we think and how we understand really does dictate how we live. Our true theology is evident in…

1 corinthians 15:12-19

You have heard it said that some things are a “matter of life and death”. All month, as we discuss resurrection, we will be discussing life and death. At the end of the day, when the smoke clears and people stop long enough to turn off the stimulus and think, it all boils down to…

1 corinthians 15:1-11

Paul picks up a super-important (and timely) topic as we enter 1st Corinthians 15: resurrection! This is a long chapter, and will take us right up to Easter, so we will be well prepared by the time we gather for Resurrection Sunday. The Corinthian issues with bodily resurrection, and the fact that Paul had to…

1 corinthians 12:12-31

We spent the first message in our 1st Corinthians 12 study discussing spiritual gifts. Now Paul will give us a framework to understand how spiritual gifts work in a practical way and in real life. The ultimate truth he is conveying to the church is that the gifts are not given to make the recipient…

1 Corinthians 7:10-24

Continuing in First Corinthians chapter seven, we continue into the section from verse 10 through 24. In this section Paul will discuss marriage, separation, and divorce. His statements are simple and clear and so important to us today! What if I told you that there is one area of focus and attention that, if improved,…

1 Corinthians 7:1-9

A large part of 1st Corinthians includes the Apostle Paul’s responses to questions–or disagreements–they had about certain topics including spiritual gifts and offerings to idols. They were trying to sort out what it looked like to live the Christian life in Corinth in the first century and surrounded by Corinthian culture!  If we had access…

1 Corinthians 6:12-20

How do you view the body? Well, that’s a weird question, isn’t it? In the second half of 1st Corinthians chapter six, Paul has to deal with some challenging topics, and he wants the Corinthians to know it isn’t just about the surface layer of actions (sexual immorality), but really has to do with the…

1 Corinthians 6:1-11

This week we open our Bibles to 1 Corinthians 6:1-11 and–oh my–what a practical and challenging passage written to an immature and problematic people! Chapter five challenged the church’s pride and unwillingness to respond to public and flagrant sexual sin. Now, there’s another black eye on the face of this church. What was it?  They couldn’t resolve…
