The Good Gift of the Umarried Life
Paul addresses the issue of the gifting and the calling of the unmarried life.
The Good Gift of Marriage
This passage teaches us about the goodness of marriage. In particular, marriage is good because it is intimate and it is permanent.
Glorify God in your Body
There is a sanctity and glory to our bodies and God calls us to be faithful and to serve him with them.
The Communion of Saints
We are not a community of perfect people, but a people set apart, made holy and called to holiness. Because of this we need to take sin seriously in the life of the church.
Keeping the Feast
Church discipline is not the most favourite topic of pastors or parishioners in our age, but there will be no correctness in the Church without correction.
Are You For Real?
A portrait of the immature Corinthian believers. They thought they were mature but the Apostle Paul shows them that they are mostly talk.
This Day and That Day
Martin Luther once said, There are only two days on my calendar, this day and that day. The idea that life could be distilled down to two things is compelling. What is it about that day that can bring such focus to life?
Are you a Spiritual Person?
The term "spiritual" is a flimsy-floppy word and means all kinds of things to different people. In this passage the Apostle Paul tells us what it really means.
Paul contrasts why one group of people sees the gospel as foolishness while another sees it as the power of God.
Called into the Fellowship of God's Son
There is a danger of thinking that at least we aren't as bad as others, the Corinthian believers thought that as well. Paul calls them, and us, to repentance and to unity in Christ.
