This coming Sunday I am going to begin a sermon series on 1 Corinthians. This will go till Ash Wednesday (the beginning of Lent). This Sunday I will start with 1 Corinthians 1.1-9. For the most part this is the Apostle Paul's preliminary comments to the church in Corinth. But he also says something very intriguing. It is found in verse 9. It says: "God is faithful; by him you were called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord." Those words ---- the fellowship of his Son ---- have really stuck out to me. What is the fellowship of his Son? What does this have to do with the God who is faithful? Does this have anything to do with the relationship of the Trinity? What does this have to do with our fellowship as believers? Interestingly, if you go to the next few verses the Apostle Paul begins addressing the division that is found in Corinth. I think there is an important point to understanding this verse by looking at the division. I would love to hear what you all think. Look it over and comment back.
