Dear Church Slides, 7/27/14 Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Paul,  called  by  the  will  of  God  to  be  an  apostle  of   Christ  Jesus,  and  our  brother  Sosthenes,   To  the  church  of  God  that  is  in  Corinth,  to  those   sanc;fied  in  Christ  Jesus,  called  to  be  saints   together  with  all  those  who  in  every  place  call   upon  the  name  of  our  Lord  Jesus  Christ,  both   their  Lord  and  ours:   Grace  to  you  and  peace  from  God  our  Father   and  the  Lord  Jesus  Christ.  
  • 2. I  give  thanks  to  my  God  always  for  you  because  of   the  grace  of  God  that  was  given  you  in  Christ  Jesus,   that  in  every  way  you  were  enriched  in  him  in  all   speech  and  all  knowledge—  even  as  the  tes;mony   about  Christ  was  confirmed  among  you—  so  that   you  are  not  lacking  in  any  giG,  as  you  wait  for  the   revealing  of  our  Lord  Jesus  Christ,  who  will  sustain   you  to  the  end,  guiltless  in  the  day  of  our  Lord  Jesus   Christ.  God  is  faithful,  by  whom  you  were  called   into  the  fellowship  of  his  Son,  Jesus  Christ  our  Lord.   1  Corinthians  1:1-­‐9  (ESV)  
  • 3. GARBAGE  IN  THE  CHURCH   •  Incest,   •  Sexual  immorality  in  general,   •  Lawsuits  between  Chris;ans,   •  Disregard  for  the  apostles’  teaching,   •  Conflicts  over  “freedom”  as  a  believer,   •  Marriage  rela;onships  turned  upside  down,   •  Disorder  in  worship  (including  the  Lord’s   Supper)  
  • 4. I  appeal  to  you,  brothers,  by  the  name  of  our   Lord  Jesus  Christ,  that  all  of  you  agree,  and  that   there  be  no  divisions  among  you,  but  that  you   be  united  in  the  same  mind  and  the  same   judgment.  For  it  has  been  reported  to  me  by   Chloe's  people  that  there  is  quarreling  among   you,  my  brothers.  What  I  mean  is  that  each  one   of  you  says,  “I  follow  Paul,”  or  “I  follow  Apollos,”   or  “I  follow  Cephas,”  or  “I  follow  Christ.”  
  • 5. Is  Christ  divided?  Was  Paul  crucified  for  you?  Or   were  you  bap;zed  in  the  name  of  Paul?  I  thank  God   that  I  bap;zed  none  of  you  except  Crispus  and   Gaius,  so  that  no  one  may  say  that  you  were   bap;zed  in  my  name.  (I  did  bap;ze  also  the   household  of  Stephanas.  Beyond  that,  I  do  not   know  whether  I  bap;zed  anyone  else.)  For  Christ   did  not  send  me  to  bap;ze  but  to  preach  the   gospel,  and  not  with  words  of  eloquent  wisdom,   lest  the  cross  of  Christ  be  emp;ed  of  its  power.   1  Corinthians  1:10-­‐17  (ESV)  
  • 6. 1.  Agree  there  will  be  NO  DIVISIONS  among   you!  
  • 7. 1.  Agree  there  will  be  NO  DIVISIONS  among   you!   2.  The  Corinthians  lack  of  agreement  was   centered  in  personal  preferences  and   personaliJes.  
  • 8. 1.  Agree  there  will  be  NO  DIVISIONS  among   you!   2.  The  Corinthians  lack  of  agreement  was   centered  in  personal  preferences  and   personaliJes.   3.  Everything  we  do  needs  to  emphasize  JESUS,   not  a  personality!  
  • 9. Is  Christ  divided?     •  Whose  name  were  you  bap;zed  into?   •  What  denomina;on  does  Jesus  prefer”   •  Whose  cross  has  the  power  to  save?
