"If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal." 1 Cor 13:1 ESV The 13th chapter of First Corinthians is one of the most beautiful pieces of literature ever written. How amazing that it came from the pen of a missionary rabbi, who was simply trying to instruct his churches! Of course, Paul wasn't the real author of it. Every beautiful word has been breathed-forth by the Spirit of God! We're just testing the water this week, but get ready for a very deep plunge.

"Now, all of you are the Body of Christ, and individually members of it." 1 Cor 12:2 By its very definition, a machine has no unnecessary parts. The same is true for the human body, and--oh!--supremely true for the Body of Christ! You, who have been called by Christ, and baptized into His Spirit, are a part! A 'necessary part! You belong! And that's wonderful news!

"Now, concerning Spiritual gifts, brothers, I do not want you to be uninformed." 1 Cor. 12:1 "He would adore my gifts instead of me," says the Lord about mankind in George Herbert's beautiful poem ("The Pulley"). And--wouldn't you know?--it was happening in Corinth! the sad, chaotic spirit in that church was turning the gifts of God into yet another cause for division! Let's learn from it today...

"When you come together, I hear there are divisions among you." 1 Cor. 11:18 "Divide and Conquer" is an ancient principle, practiced by tyrants and conquerors for centuries. But it goes all the way back to the Devil's playbook! Jesus Himself warned us about it: "A house divided against itself will not stand." Mk. 3:25 And--wouldn't you know?-- that's what was happening in Corinth. From his series on 1 Corinthians "To the Saints at Sin City"

"...(for I am) not seeking my own good, but the good of many, so that they may be saved." 1 Cor 10: 33 "Where is there a dungeon as dark as one's own heart, or a jailer as inexorable as the self?" asks Nathaniel Hawthorne in one of his tales. That is so true! But when a person becomes a Christian, all of that begins to change. He no longer lives int he the "dungeon of the jailer". He no longer seeks his own good, but the good of others. And his ultimate burden--just like his Savior!--is for the lost! Message by Pastor Rod Schorr, from his series on 1 Corinthians: "To the Saints in Sin City"

"...flee from idolatry... from the sacrifices of pagans are offered to demons and not unto God." 1 Cor. 10:14, 20 American preachers used to equate "money" and "ambition" with idolatry when they preached. After all, no American was drawn to the actual idol of wood or stone. But-- my!-- how that's changed! Now we find idols everywhere! They decorate our living rooms and ornament our gardens. Do we really know what we're doing? Do we really know what an idol is? Let's settle this issue today! From his series on 1 Corinthians: To the Saints in Sin City

"We should not put Christ to the test, as some of them did..." 1 Cor. 10:9 (ESV) Paul has been pressing up on the Corinthians that the risk of being rejected by God is real! Merely 'belonging', in some superficial way, is no guarantee that the danger is gone! This morning, Paul goes on to give the most vivid historical proof of this: the Israelites who 'belonged' to the Exodus, but who tempted the Lord with their rebellious ways. The parallels to present day American are startling, to say the least! From his series on 1 Corinthians: To the Saints in Sin City

"I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air." 1 Cor 9:26 The Apostle Paul was an extraordinary man: history's greatest evangelist and missionary. Everywhere he went, he left churches in his wake. But if you could ask Paul how he would most like to be known, I'm sure he would tell you: "Soul-winner will do." It was actually his greatest ambition. It should be ours too. From his series: First Corinthians: To the Saints in Sin City
