2 Corinthians 6:1-18

As me move into 2nd Corinthians chapter 6, we find ourselves in a short chapter that we will cover in one message, but as usual, this chapter includes some real gems of wisdom for us. Paul, desperate to see the Corinthian people’s lives changed by God’s message, is still battling against those that are negative…

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. Could there be anything more important in our lives than love? Everyone agrees…

1 Corinthians 7:25-40

As the final installment in our “miniseries” on marriage, we complete 1st Corinthians chapter seven, with Paul’s answers to the Corinthian’s questions about marriage. Next week chapter eight picks up with a new question and a new topic. The last section of this chapter has some difficulties. The difficulties exist because Paul is addressing some…

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…

Romans 7:1-6

Romans chapter 7 is all about the law.  Verses 1 through 6 actually follows up from chapter 6, verse 15, with another “Don’t you know….”. Paul now calls on marriage as an illustration to prove his next point.  Have you ever seen how powerful love can be?  I have seen people quit smoking, change hobbies, stay up…

Mark 10:1-12

Jesus tackles a difficult (and meant to be tricky) question regarding marriage and divorce in front of the religious leaders. The questions around divorce and marriage are still difficult today, and Pastor Steve showed both God’s standard from Genesis (as Jesus did) as well as God’s grace for our failings in this opening section from…
