2 Corinthians 2:5-17

We pick up in 2nd Corinthians chapter 2, verse 5 as we make our way through this very personal and very revealing exchange between Paul and the people in Corinth. This next section offers a “case study” of sorts. Paul discusses a very specific situation involving an unnamed individual in the Corinthian church. The person’s…

1 Corinthians 13:8-13

We’re spending this Sunday looking at the second half of 1st Corinthians chapter 13: the Love Chapter. We are looking at, what I would call, the “purest love”. The love of God never has mixed motives and is never corrupted by sin or selfishness. We get glimpses of it, but in our fallen and selfish…

1 Corinthians 13:1-7

This week’s passage, 1st Corinthians chapter 13, is arguably the most important passage in the New Testament! Affectionately known as “the Love Chapter”, we get a challenging picture of the kind of love that comes from God, and is expressed by God.

It seems that they have challenged Paul and his authority to even tell them…

This sounds like a tall order, and compared to what Christ has done for us, we all feel very unworthy and unable to fulfill this calling! In this message, one…

Revelation 2:1-7

Kishor Pandagade, a great friend of CCFluvanna and a missionary with Advancing Native Missions (ANM), shares a message from the letters to the churches found in Revelation; specifically the letter to Ephesus. In this letter we find a commendation and a warning; a warning to those who have “good deeds” but have lost their first…

1 John 4:7-11 – Valentine’s Day 2016

Pastor Steve steps out of our study in the gospel of Mark to talk about God’s love (agape) from 1 John chapter 4. Real and unconditional love from God should overwhelm us when we really understand that “God is love” and our response should be to love one another with that same unconditional love.
