Rich T - 29.11.20
Serving the Body in Love
If there's any final encouragement to those serving Christ what would that be? There is an approach to God's work that excels over all and suits every situation.
Where Practicalities and Theology Meet
Do you tend to shut down when a biblical letter turns to practical matters? If you do you may be missing an important window into how the early Christians lived out their faith.
Go Hard Till Your New Home
‘What will we be like?’, and ‘When will it happen?’ you may ask. The Apostle Paul answers this... a bit; but then urges us, with the great things in store for you to live with the end in mind.
Creation Reveal: Resurrection 2.0
Is our bodily resurrection just a tail end of our salvation and does it influence our present faith in Christ? Paul outlines highly anticipated resurrection body features God has revealed for believers in Christ.
Let's Eat And Drink, for Tomorrow We Die!
As Sure As Day Follows Night
Is the resurrection just a bonus at the end of life for believers? Paul argues that the certainty of the resurrection is actually the culmination of Christ's finished work for the New Creation.
Hope in the Resurrection
If Christ was not resurrected than we have no good news and Christianity falls apart, all we’re left with is idolatry. The Resurrection is central to the gospel which produces resurrection hope.
The Gospel: The Reality of Resurrection Hope
What is our future hope based on? The Gospel is the foundational, historical reality of Christ’s death and resurrection that enables sure faith for our own future resurrection.
Order for the Common Good
What do you value most when you attend a church meeting? If you highly value freedom of expression, then Paul has a word of caution for you to consider your fellow believer's edification.
Do Not Be Children In Your Thinking
As we continue in our "Grow Up" series through 1 Corinthians, the apostle Paul instructs the church in Corinth to be mature in its thinking. We learn about how the church should behave concerning the gifts of speaking in tongues and prophecy.
Speaking Considerate Language (Principles for use of Spiritual Gifts pt 6)
In this section we learn from Paul to pursue love and use the gift of speaking a tongue appropriately. We all need to know and cooperate with the Spirit of God as He works His gifts in and through each of us to benefit all and Christ's work on earth.
The Challenge of Love
Paul challenges the Corinthians’ presumed spirituality and behaviour, calling them to a greater way, the way of love.
Unity in Diversity
The Church is the body of Christ which is a unity in diversity. United together by the Spirit, yet diverse in gifts and roles.
Spiritual Gifts for the Common Good
Who has the spiritual gifts and why? The Holy Spirit gives diverse gifts to all believers, for the common good.
The Lord's Supper - What are You Bringing to the Table?
What are you bringing to the table? The Lord's supper is a place where we commune with our Saviour. It's a call to love Christ and to love His Church and about checking our hearts before we come to the Lord's table, just as Paul instructed the believers in Corinth.
Gender Equal Public Worship
Is there place for male and female to vocally worship God in the same gathering? While different and equally made in God's image each must worship in a manner that glorifies God and honours His order in the church.
Idolatry & God’s Glory
How do we live God glorifying lives in a society that is so steeped in idolatry? Paul reminds us that we are to flee idolatry, and follow Christ in seeking the good of our neighbour over our own freedom.
Be Grateful, Focused & Encouraged
Can a person be strong and yet weak at the same time? Old Testament history teaches us that an arrogant stance can quickly turn into an embarrassing fall, but God.
Liberty to Serve for Eternal Reward
Will God reward those who fulfil His work on earth? if you receive God's Word with the right heart; the right focus will enable you to serve faithfully and accumulate God's eternal rewards.
