Introduction: 1 Corinthians is the Apostle Paul's first epistle (letter) to the church in Corinth. In it he answers several questions posed by the Corinthians that were causing dissension in their carnal congregation.
1 Corinthians 2:4-5 — The power of man’s persuasive speech may produce outward reformation—a change of man’s habits—but only the power of God’s Spirit can produce inward transformation—a change of man’s heart.
1 Corinthians 6:17 — To be coupled with Christ is for His Spirit to see through your eyes, to think through your mind, to touch through your hands, to speak through your mouth, to love through your heart, and to live through your life.
1 Corinthians 9:16-17 — The God-called preacher doesn’t choose to preach, but is divinely compelled to preach, and can never be content doing anything else. Therefore, he can take no credit for carrying out his God-given commission under such divine constraint.
1 Corinthians 9:23-27 — If athletes commit themselves to do whatever it takes to win temporal tributes and corruptible crowns, like a Super Bowl ring, shouldn't Christians commit themselves to do whatever it takes to win immortal souls and an incorruptible crown?
1 Corinthians 11:1 — The Christian should follow the example of others only to the degree that they are following the perfect example of Christ.
1 Corinthians 15:10 — Many supposed recipients of God’s grace raise their hand today in the worship of God, but refuse to lift a finger in the work of God.
1 Corinthians 15:55 — For the Christian, Christ has removed the sepulcher’s sting and transformed the tomb into triumph.
