Sermons on “1 Corinthians”

Discern the Body of Christ

Chris continues the series in 1 Corinthians 11, looking at what Paul has to say about the communion meal and the way that it was being observed in the church in Corinth – particularly the need to bring God’s Agape love to the meal; to recognise others as part of the body; and hence to be in unity with our brothers and sisters in Christ.

Decide to love

Continuing the study of 1 Corinthians in Chapter 13, Chris looks at God’s unconditional, undeserved, ‘Agape’ love for us and reminds us that it is our duty as Christians to show this ‘Agape’ love of God to others in the way we love them.

Everything is Permissable

Everything is permissible but not everything is beneficial. In the final verses of 1 Cor 10 the Apostle Paul draws together his arguments in three powerful sound-bites: Everything is permissible but not everything is constructive. No one should seek his own good but the good of others. Whatever you do, do for the glory of God. Chris applies this advice to our worship and work today and invites us consider the coming week.

The Love of Knowledge or the Knowledge of Love

Chris continues the series of 1 Corinthians in Chapter 8, drawing parallels between our situation today and the culture of the day in which the early church found itself. He reiterates Paul’s conclusion that what matters is not our often inadequate and incomplete knowledge of God, but that God knows and loves us.
