THIS WEEK WE OPEN THE SECOND LETTER TO THE CHURCH AT CORINTH. IT OPENS WITH THE BLESSED ASSURANCE OF GOD’S MERCY AND COMFORT. THE CHRISTIAN HAS THE OPPORTUNITY TO WALK IN JOY BECAUSE OF THE CONFIDENCE THAT IS OURS IN HIS COMFORTING PRESENCE. IF YOU ARE NOT WALKING IN JOY, IT IS OFTEN BECAUSE YOU HAVE FORGOTTEN THAT HE IS NEAR. 2 CORINTHIANS 1 REMINDS US OF THESE GREAT TRUTHS.

This week, we are looking at one of the most popular chapters in the Bible, I Corinthians 13. We know it as the great love chapter, and though we know what it has to say, most people simply don’t understand what this Godly love is. We have been given the gift of God’s love through Jesus our Lord and Savior. We need to learn to let His love flow through us.

This week we will focus on the instruction given to the church on the observance of the Lord'w Supper. As Paul writes to the church in Corinth he rebukes them for ignoring the purpose and preparation that is required to honor the Lord with our lives and in His church. Our worship should unify our service and fill our lives with thanksgiving for the sacrifice of Jesus.

This week we come to chapters 9 and 10 in the first letter to the church at Corinth. Through these first chapters Paul, under the leadership of the Holy Spirit of God, has encouraged us to glorify God, in our salvation, in our relationships with brothers and sisters in His church, in our bodies, and in our marriage or singleness. Now the message moves to glorifying God in and through relationships with those around us who have not come to Christ. For these, we are to build redemptive relationships by building bridges of love.

This week we continue to turn the pages of these wonderful love letters from God. As we read from chapter seven Paul begins to answer a question the the Corinthian believers have asked him. “To marry or not to marry, that is the question,” that might have been a good title for the sermon as well. In this passage we will discover what it means to keep the commitments that we have made.

"Glorifying God"... We were created for this purpose and in 1 Corinthians 6 we are reminded that what we do and say can distort our ability to bring God glory. We are are often distracted and deceived by the world into wrong thinking about the value of our lives. God’s word reminds us that He so highly valued us that He payed a high price for our redemption.

This week we launch our new series: Love Letters.
This weeks message is titled "United in Christ.” Begining in chapter one verse 10 Paul gets to the heart of the issue to this and every church when he asks the question, "Is Christ divided?" The reader must realize that, if we are in Christ, then we cannot live or act like there are divisions between those of us who are called by His name. This is a challenging truth and we are going to explore its meaning together.

This week we will read from Joshua chapters 5 and 6 which focus on the story of Jericho. For many it is a familiar story because it is so dramatic. In truth it is a story of humble faith. Both Joshua and the people of Israel were called upon to humbly and quietly walk around the city for seven days. God was teaching His people to trust Him and to not lean on their own ideas. It is a teaching that we need to consider for our walk with Christ.
