10AM 4/22/18 “All Is From God” 1 Cor. 4

1Cor.4

Those in the church at Corinth were boasting about being more gifted than others (1 Cor.4).   The Apostle asked them; “Who makes you different from one another? And what do you have that you did not freely receive? And if it was freely given to you, why do you boast about it as if you had something to do with receiving it.                    Everything we have was given to us by God. Our life, our talents, abilities, knowledge, gifts, and possessions, all is from God. It is foolish to think we are more gifted than someone else because of our talents, knowledge, gifts or possessions. These were all freely given to us by The Holy Spirit of God who tells us not to think more highly of ourselves than we think of others (Phil.2:3,4).

10AM Sunday 4/15/18 “The Temple of the Holy Spirit” – 1 Corinthians 3 –

1Corinth3

If you are Born Again the Holy Spirit lives inside of you. You are the temple of God the Holy Spirit! Paul is reminding the carnal, and immature Corinthian church that the temple of God is holy, and should be set apart for His use, and not mistreated or defiled in the world (1 Cor.3).  Some people use this scripture to teach against smoking or over eating. That could be applied; but to keep it in context we should include candy, and every other thing that is bad for our bodies.                         What Paul was really talking about here was the abuse of our bodies that takes place when we use our bodies for immoral behavior. Our bodies are His Holy Temple, and we need to keep them pure from the disease of sin that is in the world.

10AM Sunday: 4/5/18 “Revealed By The Spirit” – 1 Corinthians 2

1Corinth2

This verse in 1 Cor. 2 – “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him” is from Isa.64:4 and has been quoted too many times as though it concerns heaven. Now it certainly does apply to heaven; but in context (read on to verse 10) the Holy Spirit is talking about what we have right now because of the sacrifice of Christ on the Cross.                                            People don’t really understand the glorious grace, forgiveness, and gifts of God that could be theirs if they would only accept Jesus into their hearts and lives.  How many Christians really appreciate what we have right here and now? But He has revealed them to us through His Spirit.
