1 Corinthians: Real life- real church
Paul is writing to a church in one of the largest cosmopolitan cities of the Roman empire. He is writing to a church that is gifted but flawed. A church that has been blessed by God but has lost its way and needs to discover how they should live as God’s holy people. 1 Corinthians addresses some major themes – who we are in Christ, relationships, the way we should live, what happens when we die, the role of the Spirit.
This sermon series works through the whole of Paul’s letter and allows us to see how relevant this letter to us today. So many of the issues that Paul addresses are still issues for us today. Paul is addressing real issues in a real church – exactly what we need to hear.
