Take a look inside the church
Next week we begin a new series on Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians. This correspondence from the Apostle gives us an inside look at a first century Christian church—and it isn’t all good! This is a church riddled with factions and fighting, pride and posturing, greed and godlessness. Things need to change, and with God’s grace they will. This letter shows us that things could be worse than they appear and yet better than we could ever imagine. It focuses our hearts and minds on the wonder of God’s transforming grace. We don’t need to long for an ‘ideal’ church that was—God presents us with a vision for what the church can become.
