Stewardship
Shared by: Lou Nicholes on May, 2005

Commitment
Shared by: Lou Nicholes on May, 2005
Summary: Why is it that Christians often need to be motivated to give when God has given us so much? God had provided for the Corinthians in such a wonderful way and yet they were hesitant to share what they had with others.

Warfare
Shared by: Lou Nicholes on May, 2005
Summary: We need to keep in mind that throughout this letter Paul is writing to a divided church, and a church that is being seduced by false teachers. These false teachers charged Paul with being very courageous when he wrote letters from a distance, but said t

Boasting
Shared by: Lou Nicholes on May, 2005
Summary: What Paul is about to do in this passage is contrary to his character. He never had any problem boasting about Christ and telling of His sufferings, but he was always hesitant to speak of his own painful experience as a servant of the Lord. However, bec

Suffering
Shared by: Lou Nicholes on May, 2005
Summary: Some of Paul’s religious assailants in Corinth were no doubt Jews. They hurled the charge at Paul that he was no true Hebrew. They said he had apostatized from the faith and that he could not possibly be a faithful minister of God. With this in mind, Paul

Grace

Motive
Shared by: Lou Nicholes on May, 2005
Summary: Apparently the false teachers in Corinth were suggesting that Paul’s unwillingness to accept support from the church was simply a coverup. They thought that he really had a love for money, and the offering he claimed to be taking for the suffering saints

Unity
Shared by: Lou Nicholes on May, 2005
Summary: Paul’s final appeal in this letter is a call for unity. In the first nine chapters he addressed the majority of the Christians in the Corinthian assembly. In chapters 10 - 13:10, his words were directed primarily to those who questioned his integrity. In

Unfaithful
Shared by: Lou Nicholes on May, 2005
Summary: "The word of the Lord that came" indicates that this prophecy is not Hosea’s (v. l). It is a prophecy that originated with God Himself. In dealing with the words of this prophecy a person is not dealing with the words of man, but rather with the very word

Hypocrisy
