1 Corinthians 1.10-18
This coming Sunday I will be focusing on 1 Corinthians 1.10-18. In this group of verses the Apostle Paul brings up the division that is going on in the church of Corinth. Apparently, Chloe still had some inside information about the quarrels that are going on in Corinth (verse 11). Paul feels like these quarrels need to be addressed because it is an error for the church to be operating this way. There were divisions about who was more important because of their baptisms. Paul confronts this error and advises the church to cling to the initial message he shared. Now this message is foolishness to some. But, to those who are being saved it is the power of God (verse 18). This message is is found in the cross of Christ. The cross of Christ is the power of God revealed to all the world. But, I would like to hear from you ---- how do you think the cross of Christ is the very power of God in your life?
