Bible Talks from 1 Corinthians

The Spirit Reveals The Wisdom Of God

Preached on December 20, 2014
Bible Text: 1 Corinthians 2:6-16

If Christ had come to live the perfect life, then taken full responsibility for our sins and rose again defeating death it would have been a complete and utter waste of time unless he poured out his Spirit on his. Without the Spirit the message of the cross would remain foolish. As it is, it has become for us wisdom from God.

The Folly Of The Cross

Preached on December 13, 2014
Bible Text: 1 Corinthians 1: 17 – 2:5

Christianity has never been cool! The message of the cross is both weak and powerless in the eyes of the world. Those who received that message are viewed as foolish as are those who come preaching the message of Christ crucified. But in God's eyes that is where wisdom and real power are found.

Christians Using Culture For Christ

Preached on November 2, 2013
Bible Text: 1 Corinthians 9:1-27

Are we a church that’s willing to do whatever it takes to see as many as possible come to Jesus? We need to be ALL things to ALL people so that by ALL possible means God would save some! How can we use culture for Christ?

O Death Where Is Your Sting?

Preached on June 22, 2013
Bible Text: 1 Corinthians 15:50-16:4

Ray speaking from 1 Corinthians 15:50-58, 1 Corinthians 16:1-4. Every Perfectionist who trusts Jesus will achieve their deep longing for that perfect body. But where will we be 5 minutes after we die?

Full Bodied Resurrection

Preached on June 15, 2013
Bible Text: 1 Corinthians 15:20-49

Ray speaking from 1 Corinthians 15: 20-49. The certain hope for the Christian is not just life after death. It's a full bodied resurrection fit for a new creation.

Christ’s Resurrection, Our Resurrection

Preached on June 8, 2013
Bible Text: 1 Corinthians 15:1-20

Dan speaking from 1 Corinthians 15:1-20. What if there was no resurrection of Jesus? Paul wants the church in Corinth to keep the main thing the main thing. And that involves siding with the Risen Lord Jesus because not only is the evidence clearly there, but everything we hold dear (preaching Jesus, sins forgiven, our faith and hope) goes out the window if Jesus did not rise from the dead.

God Loves Order Not Chaos

Preached on June 1, 2013
Bible Text: 1 Corinthians 14:25-40

Ray speaking from  1 Corinthians 14:25-40. The challenge for every church is to balance freedom and order. For our God is not a God of disorder but peace. And where there is no order there is no love.

Coming to Church for Others

Preached on May 25, 2013
Bible Text: 1 Corinthians 14:1-24

The way of love applied to the church means that prophecy outranks tongues. And for one reason-unless Gods word is understood, there can be no comfort and no encouragement.

The Greatest of All – LOVE

Preached on May 18, 2013
Bible Text: 1 Corinthians 13:1-13

Heroic gifts without love = nothing. Once we become Christians the greatest matter we need to come to terms with is Love. The apostle Paul does not define it but describes it. And he reminds us that faith, hope and love are eternal and love outranks them all.

You Belong

Preached on May 4, 2013
Bible Text: 1 Corinthians 12-12-31

No one has missed out when it comes to those in Christ. We are all part of the one body of Christ. No part of the body of Christ can deny their own place or the place of another in his church. When one part suffers we all suffer and when one part rejoices we all rejoice. Family means no one gets left behind.
