This week we will start a three week journey through First and Second Corinthians. On his missionary journeys Paul had served in Corinth and shared the gospel in this prominent city of Greece. He is now writing letters back to this body of believers to help them understand and display proper Christian conduct in the church. The Corinthians had many issues and problems, and Paul wants to help them mature in Christ and develop in sanctification. We can learn much from these letters as the church still deals with “problems like immaturity, instability, divisions, jealousy and envy, lawsuits, marital difficulties, immorality, and use of spiritual gifts.” On Saturday and Sunday, we’ll focus on the Scriptures for our Gospel Groups and the Sunday sermon. Please consider the questions below regarding the Scriptures for our Gospel Groups.
