To really understand and see that we actually have a need of a change we many times need to look outside of our shelf of the little world we are living in. Many times we are not able to do that, until God shows us the way. Only because of him and through him we are able to make a difference. The first epistle to Corinthians speaks of pride of Corinthians and more love they need for each other. Through understanding of what Paul says in the first letter to Corinthians we can actually see what to do today when we are struggling with the same issues.
Skinning through the First Epistle to Corinthians
when they were on their way to the promised land. Again he focuses on Christ as bread and wine – this symbolizes fellowship with Christ. He emphasizes on that Corinthians should be separated from the sacrifices gentiles sacrifice.
Background of the book
nt to synagogue first, but when people did not listen to what he was saying (even the leader of synagogue became a Christian) he went to pagans in the city. So even there were many Jews in the city, they were not the main part of the church in Corinth. This implies, people usually did not bring much of a “holy” character into church. However, Paul did not leave the church unprepared for upcoming battles, as he was leaving, because Jews were trying to move Paul into prison, Aquila and Priscilla were in the charge of the church. In the hard conditions in immoral city, young Christians in Corinth were left alone to do their best, to be church.
Relating to the First Epistle to Corinthians
Different conditions but the same word of God. Always throughout the ages, human pride lead us to sin again and again. Church needs love and understanding of the word of God. We need to know God so we can do what he wants us to do. Through Holy Spirit, in Christ we walk. Unity in Spirit and truth, which we need to speak to each others lives. We need courage and we need to walk in faith which is practical, obedient and courageous. Through the mercy of God and because He loved us first. There is hope for us in Christ’s sacrifice. We need to take our chance. “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.”5
