In this text, Paul warns us to flee from idolatry and encourages us to run to Christ through the grace of the Lord's Supper. If Christ's body and blood have been poured out for us, then no longer are we to fellowship with "devils," but our communion is with the Lord through the sacrifice of Christ. The hope is that we will grow in grace as we look deeper into the sacrifice of Christ. The hope is that we will grow in grace as we look deeper into the external symbolism of the Lord's Supper to the spiritual significance of our personal, relational, union with Christ, and the impact of His sacrifice upon our lives. I Corinthians 10:14-22

In chapter 8, Paul set the limits of Christian liberty, limits that are to be determined by brotherly love, by our concern for the welfare of fellow brothers and sisters. In chapter 9 the apostle illustrates how he followed the principle in his own life. In verses 15-27 he explains that he would give up any and every right for the sake of winning souls to Jesus Christ. In this week’s sermon, we’ll look at Paul’s sole passion for the preaching of the Gospel. We’ll be looking at the freedom, compulsion, discipline, and passion that governed Paul in his drive to be a preacher of the Gospel and will make applications to our lives. I Corinthians 9:15-27

In I Corinthians 8, Paul addresses the issue of eating food offered to idols. Seeing their fellow Christians enjoying meat that had been sacrificed to pagan gods was causing the weaker Christians in the church to stumble. Though the issue is specific, there are timeless principles in Paul’s response that will affect the way that we live in community with our fellow believers in our day. In this sermon, we’ll be clarifying the role of conscience, the pitfalls of knowledge, and our sometimes conflicting callings to proclaim the truth and to live in love. I Corinthians 8:1-13

In I Corinthians 6:1-11, the Corinthians are rebuked for utilizing the corruption of the city's civil law system to take fellow believers to small claims court. Paul points out that this conduct is a shame to them, and showcases their ignorance when it comes to living as a Christian in the kingdom of God. In our sermon, we'll learn how we are to live as believers "of Christ" within the community of the church and of the world. I Corinthians 6:1-11

From considering the external construction of God’s church, Paul now interrogates the contents of the believers. Sin and pride can deceive us into propping ourselves as the arbiters of wisdom. However, God’s omniscience permeates our own facades and conjectures to reveal the fallibility of the human wisdom that we want to boast in. Sin and pride also cheat us out of the wisdom that God would give to us through His means. I Corinthians 3:16-23

In Andrew Wong's sermon this week we’ll see Paul sharing his personal experience in preaching what the world considers foolish, in a way that’s considered weak. But though the message of “Christ crucified” may lack persuasiveness or popularity, it has its own power. The hope in this week’s sermon is that we would grow in our determination to be faithful to the message of “Christ crucified,” and that even in our own weakness, we would grow in our faith in and reliance upon the power of God. I Corinthians 2:1-5

Paul continues his letter to the church in Corinthian with a plea for unity amidst a congregation full of sectarian schisms and political power plays. Of the many issues within the Corinthian church, it's significant that their divisiveness was the first to be addressed. When we focus on the good things of God's grace - including good men and teachers - we can lose sight of the greatest of God's graces, the person, and work of Jesus Christ. Through the humiliation of the cross, Christ's sacrificial love purchased peace for sinners with God and with one another. In this weeks sermon, we'll look at the context of the letter and the Corinthian culture to build principles on the primacy of peace that will help us apply Paul's exhortation to our own church body. I Corinthians 1:10-17

Because of Christ's blood, the redeemed of God are also the esteemed of God. When Christ's precious blood was shed for us, we were given value and worth. No longer are we to view or treat ourselves cheaply and no longer are we to live our lives aimlessly.When Christ's precious blood was shed for us, we were given a new bloodline. We were adopted into a new relationship with God as our Father. As His children we should desire to become like Him in holiness, and live for Him in obedience and reverence. In short, since Christ's precious blood was shed for us and He has been raised to glory, our faith and hope are in God.  In this final message in 1 Peter, the desire remains that your peace and grace would be multiplied to you as you cast you hope and faith upon the bloody riches of God's grace as contained in the good news of the Gospel. I Peter 1:17-19

For centuries prior to Christ’s coming, God’s prophets foretold of a coming salvation. From Noah to Malachi, they searched intensely and looked forward to the time of God’s salvation. As Peter concludes his opening exposition on the glories of salvation, he recalls the faithful ministry of these prophets. It is to us that God’s glory has been revealed and it is now that His grace is extended through the preaching of the Gospel. Now is the time of salvation! Today is the day of salvation! Unlike the prophets of old, even things that angels have desired to look into have been revealed to us. But, like the prophets, we, too, need to gird up our minds and search for the promises of God’s grace and set our hopes fully upon the prophesied glories and grace to come. I Peter 1:10-16
