Victory of Resurrection — Apr 30, 2017

Speaker: Jeff Linthicum

Hope of Resurrection — Apr 23, 2017

Speaker: Jeff Linthicum

In the middle part of Chapter 15, Paul is pointing to the Hope the resurrection brings to us.  He starts by looking at the negative, what hte reality of no resurrection would mean: no hope. He turns from negative to the positive, that because of the resurrection we have a true hope!  He then reminds them of actions of believers that make no sense apart from the resurrection of Jesus Christ!

Importance of Resurrection — Apr 16, 2017

Speaker: Jeff Linthicum

Chapter 15 is one of the longest chapters in the New Testament. We will be taking 3 Sundays, instead of just Easter Sunday to look at the Resurrection.  Here in the first part of the chapter, Paul wants them to remember the gospel he preached to them.  He moves from the broad gospel to that which is of first importance to the gospel.  He then tells there needs to be a response to the resurrection Jesus Christ.

Propriety in Gifts — Apr 9, 2017

Speaker: Jeff Linthicum

Here in Chapter 14, Paul is bringing the discussion on Spiritual Gifts to a close.  He will do so by looking at his favorite gift for the Body: Prophesy, as well as their favorite gift, the gift of tongues. His purpose is to bring a proper balance to the use of these divisive gifts within the Body of Christ.  The purpose of hte gifts is the edification of the Church.

Love Over All — Apr 2, 2017

Speaker: Jeff Linthicum

In Chapter 13, Paul gives us one of the most popular chapters in all of scripture: The Love Chapter.  Though Paul did not intend for this to be a wedding chapter.  Paul is laying out the necessity of love in the use of the Spiritual Gifts in the body of Christ.  He then lays ouf the charactor of love, what it looks like, it looks like God himself.  He closes the chapter by looking at the permanence of love.

Variety of Gifts — Mar 26, 2017

Speaker: Jeff Linthicum

In Chapter 12 Paul begins a discussion on Spiritual GIfts.  He begins by letting them know he did not want them to be uninformed about this important topic.  He let's them know there should be a diversity of gifts in the body of Christ while there is a unity of the Spirit.  He then looks at it as the diversity that actually causes us to be a body.  We all have different functions.

An Attitude Adjustment — Mar 19, 2017

Speaker: Jerry Flueckiger

Exhortations — Mar 12, 2017

Speaker: Jeff Linthicum

Paul, at the end of chapter 9 tells of how he lives his faith in such a way as to not be disqualified from winning the prize.  He, then in chapter 10, draws from the example of the Israelites in the wilderness and how many of them were disqualified from the promised land.  He encourages the Corinthians to flee the idolatry that is rampant in their community.  He then closes out the chapter reminding them of chapters 8, 9, and 10.  He then ends with the challenge to "follow me as I follow Christ!"

Paul’s Example — Mar 5, 2017

Speaker: Jeff Linthicum

Paul starts chapter 9 declaring all the freedoms he has a right to as a Christian and an Apostle. Yet he stresses that he has not availed himself to any of those rights. Instead of living the freedoms that are his, he has made ahimself a slave to all.  This is in order to seek and save the lost.  He closes the chapter by challenging the Corinthians to consider the athletes who compete in athletic events.  Consider the sacrifice they show to win the prize.  RUN in such a way.

Honoring Others — Feb 26, 2017

Speaker: Jeff Linthicum

In Chapter 8, Paul is addressing another issue raised by the Corinthians: Food sacrifice to idols.  While he is addressing the food issue, he is more concerned that the Corinthians are operating out of love more than human wisdom. He affirms that there is only one God and Lord that is what we concern ourselves with.  He closes the chapter with how we live our lives with others in mind.  We love and honor them with our actions. 

Marriage — Feb 19, 2017

Speaker: Jeff Linthicum

Paul;, in chapter 7, turns his attention to answering questions that the Corinthians posed to him.  It is about Marriage. While we can learn a lot about marriage, we need to remember that he is addressing specific questions about the topic, and not trying to lay out everything there is to know about the topic at hand.  He first addresses the unmarried and lets them know that it is good to be in this state.  He then addresses the married and lays out the permanence of marriage.  What Paul is concerend with is not marriage or singleness, but that you thrive in your relationship with God right where you are! 

No Holidays — Feb 12, 2017

Speaker: Jeff Linthicum

The Christian life has no holidays as we are always to represent our Lord.  Here in Chapter 6, Paul is challenging them in three areas that are of major concern in the Church.  The first is greed: The reason for the lawsuits that had to do with their want for more.  He turns his attention to who they really are.  That they had been sexually immoral and toehr things, but now they have been redeemed.  He closes out this section by addressing the idolatry that was present in the Church.

Response to Immorality — Feb 5, 2017

Speaker: Jeff Linthicum

After the confrontation in Chapter 4, Paul the moves to calling the church to action in Chapter 5.  They are to remove the  immoral person from their midst.  They were to do this by an act of cleaning their spiritual act.  Paul uses the analogy from the preparations of the Passover feat to cleanse their spiritual house from sin.  He reminds them that thei call to holiness is for those within the household of faith.  God will judge those outside of the faith, they judge within.

The Apostles’ Example — Jan 29, 2017

Speaker: Jeff Linthicum

Here in Chapter 4, Paul reminds them of who and what Apollos and he are servants.  Paul then contrasts he and Apollos with the actions and attitiudes of those in Corinth.  That it is not about your wealth or life of ease that points to how faithful you are.  After Paul roughs them up a bit, he goes on to remind them of why he is speaking the way he is.  They are his children in Christ and any good father will discipline his children when necessary.

Divisions in the Church — Jan 22, 2017

Speaker: Jeff Linthicum

After the soaring description in Chapter 2, of the believer who lives in the power of the Spirit, Paul brings the Corinthians crashing back down by letting them know, but this is not them because they are not mature. So Paul lets them know that what is happening in their midst is actually affecting the Church as a whole.  To destroy the Church will bring destruction upon the one doing it.  He concludes by calling them out ot their petty divisions and back to where their focus belongs.

God’s Wisdom — Jan 15, 2017

Speaker: Jeff Linthicum

Paul is comparing himself to those who spoke with human wisdom at Corinth.  He was reminding them that when he came, he came with Power and not human wisdom.  He goes from there to let htme know that they too speak the same message that he proclaimed while at Corinth.  This comes from the Spirit of God that each believer has. That we too can proclaim the message of the cross in the power of the Spirit.

Speaker: Jeff Linthicum

Paul begins the letter to the Corinthians like most books, laying out who he is and whose they are.  Reminding them that the Church is the Lord's Church.  He then turns to Thanksgiving, even being thankful for some ot theh very things that are causingi issues within the Churh.  Then he transitions from the introduction to taking on the issues within the Church at Corinth.
