Current Series: 1 & 2 Corinthians
The church has never been perfect. Only the Lord of the church is perfect, a truth that is abundantly clear in 1 and 2 Corinthians. Here we find the gospel in all its glory and life with all its complexities. Paul wrote to a people who loved Christ but struggled with division of all kinds, manifold rebellion, and downright immorality. When you read and study these two books, you are reminded that although Jesus is Lord of the church, there is no perfect church.
Even still, in these two books we learn the centrality of the cross. Paul’s letters to the church ground us in the gospel of Christ and fill us with resurrection hope. And this hope does not disappoint. is hope gives us strength for endurance so that in our struggle, we do not lose heart.
These two books serve as a banquet table of gospel truth, served up for the strength and health of God’s people. At this critical hour, an intense and thorough study of these two books is sure to bring nourishment to the famished soul and strength to any gospel- centered church.
As you study 1 and 2 Corinthians, may the Spirit of God use the Word of God to anchor your confidence and hope in the Son of God.
