1 Corinthians 14 Love and Build Up One Another

1 Corinthians 14

👉 Pursue love (v 1).

That’s how Paul introduced this portion of his letter. He had opinions on the pros and cons of the spiritual gifts of tongues and prophesy. But, first, he said, “love.”

There’s a reason chapter 13 came before 14.

👉 Let all things be done for building up (v 26).

Wherever we fall on a variety of issues. However we differ in giftedness. Whatever our personal preferences.

Pursue love. Let all things be done for building up.

I think these guidelines would make the world a little easier to navigate for all of us. ♥️

1 Corinthians 13 Do we look like love?

1 Corinthians 13

Do we – as Christ followers – look like love?

Are we patient?

Are we kind?

Do we envy?

Do we boast?

Are we arrogant?

Are we rude?

Do we insist on having our own way?

Are we irritable?

Are we resentful?

Does the truth make us rejoice?

Do we believe the best in people?

Do we maintain hope?

Do we endure?

👉 Do we look like love?

1 Corinthians 12 The Body

1 Corinthians 12

Again, with the divisiveness within the church body! Y’all, there is a reason this personal letter from Paul to the believers in Corinth is in our Bible.

When I was in elementary school, I had this teacher that would always say, “It takes all kinds to make the world go round.” In other words, God made us all unique and he did it on purpose and it’s the way it’s all supposed to work. One God – all kinds of gifts, abilities, and awesomeness.

Here Paul addressed the variety of gifts and abilities within the church body. And I love that he points out the purpose of the many gifts – not for personal glory but for the “common good” (v 7).

THE BODY

• is individually gifted as God sees fit (v 11)

• has many parts working together (v 19)

• should not have division (v 25)

• should all care for one another (v 25)

• should suffer and rejoice together (v 26)

We are all different on purpose.

1 Corinthians 11 Disorder, Divisions, and Disregard

1 Corinthians 11

Paul addressed three issues that were taking place within worship services at the Corinthian church.

  1. Disorder
  2. Divisions
  3. Disregard for one another

These three things will always happen when believers make worship about themselves instead of God. When individual preferences take priority.

Paul told the church to imitate him as he imitated Christ (v 1). And do you know what is true about Christ?

He brings order – not chaos.

He is inclusive – not divisive.

He is completely selfless – not selfish.

👉 Are our lives, homes, worship services imitating Christ?
