The admonition of Paul to the congregation at Corinth has timeless application for the church today. Scripture is clear in stating that all giftings and abilities within the church are distributed according to the sovereign grace of God. So where is there any room for boasting? Boasting in man would be folly.

Giving gifts, bringing glory
Whenever we are gathered together in The Name of Jesus, there is meant to be a mutual exchange and investment of our God-given gifts into one another’s life. It is like having Christmas in July!
Are you using your time, talents and gifts for the glory of God and the edification of your brothers and sisters in Christ?

The standard we use to compare ourselves matters. We judge ourselves by how we look, how smart we are, and how successful we deem ourselves to be. What about in the church?

1 Corinthians 3:11-13 KJV For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ. Now if any man build upon this foundation gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, stubble; Every man's work shall be made manifest: for the day shall declare it, because it shall be revealed by fire; and the fire shall try every man's work of what sort it is

One of the glories of the church is that nobody does the same thing. Churches that try to turn out people that all dress alike, carry the same kind of notebook, speak the same kind of language, use the same version of the Bible are missing what God has in mind, because
we are all to be different, yet working together and needing one another.

The gospel is a revelation from above, not a product of human ingenuity or philosophy. Thus, coming to faith in Christ is not a matter of cleverly crafted arguments of human genius, but a result of the revelation by God’s Spirit.

Precious follower of Jesus, do not believe that you need to have a brilliant mind or be a seminary graduate to share the gospel. Every child of God is given armor that includes feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace. While it is wrong to "dummy down" the gospel, it is equally wrong to think that people come to faith in Jesus through human wisdom or well scripted arguments. Faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God (Romans 10:17). Proclaim the gospel. Preach the gospel with love, with confidence and with faith that the gospel alone is the power of God unto salvation (Romans 1:16).

The wisdom of God comes to us through the foolishness of the cross. It is a foolishness to accept a gift so great that its magnitude cannot be measured. It is a foolishness to believe that God would send His Son to live among us and then allow Him to be killed just so our sins could be forgiven. It is a foolishness to think that God would provide
each of us with the Holy Spirit living in our hearts in order to help us grow closer to Him. We are fools to believe that eternal life comes simply from our belief in Christ. And yet, the wisdom of all humanity cannot begin to comprehend the capacity of God’s love for us.

What are the results when believers get their focus on the horizontal, instead of vertical? When our eyes are on God's instruments instead of Jesus? That's what was happening in the Corinthian Church. Didn't they see the danger signs?
Join us as we examine the signs that the Corinthians might have missed except for the passionate heart of the Apostle Paul and the inspiration of the Holy Spirit.

God has called us to a very important relationship, and because the church at Corinth had not understood the implications of their calling and the relationship they personally had, the apostle has to deal with divisions, scandals, lawsuits, immorality, drunkenness and quarreling.
