This Sunday we start our new sermon series in 1Corinthians and I anticipate we will spend all of 2016 working our way through it.
The church in Corinth was embroiled in many controversies: divisions over apostles, lawsuits amongst believers, sexual immorality, drunkeness at church meetings and attending feasts for idols, to list just a few. In fact, the best Paul could say about this church in his opening remarks was that they were recipients of grace!
Unsurprisingly, we have much to learn from this letter.
Do consider investing in a commentary to help you track the series, Tom Wright’s 'Paul for Everyone - 1 Corinthians’ is a good starting point and can be ordered here.
