Ever feel the pointing finger of judgment? What was your response? What does ungodly judgment do to an individual, family, local church, or community? Have you been guilty of ungodly judgment?
Did you notice the results? Did you like the results? Our text today describes how not to judge and how to judge. If we judge with godly judgment, abundant life results in any circumstance. If we judge with ungodly judgment, then ruin is the result.

Paul concludes his first letter to the Corinthians with an Aramaic phrase, “Maranatha”. It translates as, “Come, O Lord!” (1 Corinthians 16:22) It is a significant ending for his letter. Paul’s focus, as ours, is upon the anticipated return of our Lord Jesus Christ.

One of the main ways a Christian glorifies and serves the God Who
saves him is by sharing with the unsaved about true salvation
through Jesus Christ. Serving God needs to involve activity and I
believe it is fitting that we put first things first

Paul’s teaching to the Corinthians challenges us in a relevant way today. How eager are we to have spiritual gifts and use them? The implication is that our gifts are not static. It isn’t as if the spiritual gifts we receive when we’re first converted are the only gifts we’ll ever have. The text invites us to consider prayerfully asking God to endow us with spiritual gifts. With faith and a desire to build up the church, we must seek God and trust Him to use us in the body of Christ as His servants.

In an age when people define themselves by their wealth and possessions, Jesus' words are hard to hear. Self-denial simply is not a popular message in our super-size, Big Gulp culture. In following Jesus, we begin by letting go of all those things that place a prior hold on our affections. Relationships, possessions, privilege, position, and ease give way to God's call.

The apostle Paul reminds us in 1 Corinthians 10 that God was not pleased with the behavior of the Israelites. Paul cautions in verse 21, “You cannot drink the cup of the Lord and the cup of demons too; you cannot have a part in both the Lord’s table and the table of demons.” Everything we own is a gift from God. Without Him, we have nothing! But we need to remember that when we put the gifts above the gift-giver, God, we have made our possessions an idol.
