Concerned with What?

by

1 Corinthians 7:25-40 (CSB) Now about virgins:[a] I have no command from the Lord, but I do give an opinion as one who by the Lord’s mercy is faithful. 26 Because of the present distress, I think that it is good for a man to remain as he is. 27 Are you bound to a wife? Do […]

Faithful in All Conditions

by

1 Corinthians 7:17-24 (CSB) Let each one live his life in the situation the Lord assigned when God called him.[a] This is what I command in all the churches. 18 Was anyone already circumcised when he was called? He should not undo his circumcision. Was anyone called while uncircumcised? He should not get circumcised. 19 Circumcision does […]

Divorce or Not

by

1 Corinthians 7:10-16 (CSB) To the married I give this command—not I, but the Lord—a wife is not to leave[a] her husband. 11 But if she does leave, she must remain unmarried or be reconciled to her husband—and a husband is not to divorce his wife. 12 But I (not the Lord) say to the rest: If […]

Maaw-whijj

by

1 Corinthians 7:1-9 (CSB) Now in response to the matters you wrote[a] about: “It is good for a man not to use[b] a woman for sex.” 2 But because sexual immorality is so common,[c] each man should have sexual relations with his own wife, and each woman should have sexual relations with her own husband. 3 A […]

A Theology of the Body

by

1 Corinthians 6:12-20 (CSB) “Everything is permissible for me,” but not everything is beneficial. “Everything is permissible for me,” but I will not be mastered by anything. 13 “Food is for the stomach and the stomach for food,” and God will do away with both of them. However, the body is not for sexual immorality but […]

My Rights, Your Wrongs

by

1 Corinthians 6:1-11 (CSB) If any of you has a dispute against another, how dare you take it to court before the unrighteous,[a] and not before the saints? 2 Or don’t you know that the saints will judge the world? And if the world is judged by you, are you unworthy to judge the trivial cases? […]

The Annual Sex Talk

by

1 Corinthians 5:1-13 (CSB) It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and the kind of sexual immorality that is not even tolerated[a] among the Gentiles—a man is sleeping with his father’s wife. 2 And you are arrogant! Shouldn’t you be filled with grief and remove from your congregation the one who did […]

Fatherly Advice

by

1 Corinthians 4:14-21 (CSB) I’m not writing this to shame you, but to warn you as my dear children. 15 For you may have countless instructors in Christ, but you don’t have many fathers. For I became your father in Christ Jesus through the gospel. 16 Therefore I urge you to imitate me. 17 This is why I […]

Scum of the Earth

by

1 Corinthians 4:6-13 (CSB) Now, brothers and sisters, I have applied these things to myself and Apollos for your benefit, so that you may learn from us the meaning of the saying: “Nothing beyond what is written.” The purpose is that none of you will be arrogant, favoring one person over another. 7 For who makes […]

Who Judges Who?

by

1 Corinthians 4:1-5 (CSB) A person should think of us in this way: as servants of Christ and managers of the mysteries of God. 2 In this regard, it is required that managers be found faithful. 3 It is of little importance to me that I should be judged by you or by any human court.[a In […]
