    To really come to grips with the ministry God wants for us is the great challenge of the Christian life.

    (1 Corinthians 4:1-21) How would you define ministry, particularly your ministry? The apostle Paul is very serious about this aspect of ministry among God’s people. We have not been saved to be passive, but rather, to do the work of the ministry under the authority of God. more

  • Pride And Service Series

    Contributed by D Marion Clark on Sep 16, 2012

    Here is what Paul wants the Corinthians to understand and what the Holy Spirit would have us understand. What matters is to follow Jesus Christ wherever that may lead us.

    Introduction It has been three weeks since we have been in 1 Corinthians. You will recall that Paul has been admonishing the Corinth saints for division in the church and for their being enamored with worldly wisdom. The underlying issue, we noted, was the tension between the church and Paul, more

  • Answer Ten: Don't Judge Or Compare Ministers Series

    Contributed by Jerry Cosper on Jul 21, 2015

    Some in the Corinthian church were judging the gifts of believers and preachers. This answer takes off from Paul’s ninth answer about letting God be the judge of ministers.

They were usurping the authority of God alone to gift and to judge men. In reality, they were nothing more

    based on 65 ratings

    Everything we have came from God- even our personalities- and we need to exercise proper stewardship within this reality.

    Stewards March 3, 2001 We don’t have stewards in most areas of our lives anymore, but in a bygone day, stewards were tremendously important.

  • Lesson 8: Watch Out For Pride Series

    Contributed by Tom Fuller on Nov 1, 2010

    Pride is a sneaky thing. It's the default program for humans and is at the root of the problem in Corinth, and often at the root of our problems as Christians.

    The American Heritage Dictionary defines sarcasm as: "A form of irony in which apparent praise conceals another, scornful meaning." An example might be to someone who is always late and you say to them: "Oh my, you're right on time!" Now if I told you that the Bible has several excellent more

    based on 311 ratings

    Christianity would benefit greatly if there were more humble individuals in both pulpits and pews

    When asked what were the three most important Christian virtues, Augustine replied, "Humility, humility, and humility." Yet, this great virtue is in rather short supply in our culture. Even very good people seem to have a hard time being really humble. One day Linus tells Charlie Brown, "When I more
