Teaching: The Book of 1 Corinthians

Love has a name, His name is Jesus.

In 1 Corinthians, Paul addresses specific issues the Corinthian church is having and shows them how the Gospel, when properly applied, solves the problem.

Love is the answer.

Love in 1 Corinthians

  • I will put your good before my own.
  • I will put your flourishing before my freedom.
  • I will put your growth before my comfort.
  • I will put God’s way before our wants.

This is Biblical love

  • Love is self-sacrificial.
  • Love is truth.
  • Love is unconditional.
  • Love is unmerited.
  • Love is wise and discerning.
  • Love is the power of God.

What are you facing today? Paul says, face it with the Gospel, and you’re going to win. The cross-shaped love of Jesus always wins.
