Tim Fulkerson | 6.7.20
1 Corinthians 1:1–9
This sermon introduces us to the book of 1 Corinthians and provides an insight into the author, audience, date, and content of the letter. The Apostle Paul was reminding the church in Corinth that faith should make a difference in our lives, that theology should affect our behavior. God is calling each of us to become spiritually mature in the grace that He provides. Jesus is our Supplier and Sustainer!
A United Community
Tim Fulkerson | 6.14.20
1 Corinthians 1:10–17
Many divisions that we see in our culture today sadly also happen in the Church. One of the main reasons the Apostle Paul wrote his letter to the Corinthian church was to exhort them to handle their differences. He reminds us that Christ and His church must not be divided. Today we look at five principles for how to deal with conflict in a way that glorifies Jesus. Spiritually mature churches learn to walk in unity and understanding, even in our differences.
The Wisdom of God: Christ Crucified
Tim Fulkerson | 6.21.20
1 Corinthians 1:18–2:5
Many people today are searching for meaning and purpose in their lives. Sadly many never find true wisdom and understanding because they fail to seek the Lord. Paul makes clear that there is a distinction between human wisdom and godly wisdom. If we could find God by our own “wisdom,” we would essentially be worshipping ourselves and not God. Rather than boasting in our wisdom, God’s desire is that we humble ourselves and look to the cross of Christ. True wisdom, Godly wisdom, can only be found in the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
Wisdom Revealed by the Spirit
Tim Fulkerson | 6.28.20
1 Corinthians 2:6–16
We all need wisdom for life’s circumstances. Paul was writing a church that sadly looked for wisdom in the wrong places. Rather than seeking the guidance and leading of the Holy Spirit, they only sought wisdom from natural human perspectives. While they had all of heaven’s guidance at their disposal, they were satisfied with a much lesser wisdom. We too can make the same mistake. To be a spiritual person is to be a person led by the Spirit of Christ. He becomes our link to knowing God’s thoughts. As we seek for wisdom in our lives, let us be led of the Holy Spirit and keep our gaze towards the Cross of Christ.
