Shared about how I was called brave for taking on such a hard hitting book, so early in my ministry, and that I desired to feed my flock. Using the illustration of Abraham being called faithful before he did anything for God I through Paul's words showed how salvation cones from Faith and not works. Also showing the difference between love and euphoria. Spoke about God being more concerned with our hearts than what we do.

The Corinthian Correspondence
Pastor Glenn • Grace United Family Church • Sermon • • 48 views • 42:25
What is it about 1 and 2 Corinthians that endears us to them? Is it the love chapter (1 Cor. 13)? Or the encouragement and comfort that God gives us when we are afflicted that we may comfort others with the affliction that he gave us (2 Cor. 1)? Perhaps it's because of the massive problems the Corinthian church had and when we compare ourselves to them we can think, "I'm glad I'm not as bad as them"! There are many reasons why Paul wrote what he did. When we fail to take into account Paul's passion for God's glory and the cultural landscape from which the Corinthian believes emerged, we can come up with some pretty strange ideas when we read and study the Corinthain correspondence. Come with the Grace United crew as we attempt to set the stage to understand Paul's letters to his beloved Corinthians.
