Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Love at the heart of Paul’s conclusion to these Christians. This morning, I will consider closely Paul’s words in v 14, but then use it as the overarching imperative for the rest of the book. The big point of the conclusion of 1 Corinthians is Christians must do all they do in love. The end of this chapter shows how we love as Christians.

Saving or Spending (Worship Service, August 14, 2016)

Title: Saving or Spending

Passage: Mark 8:34-38

Speaker: Missionary Mark Perry

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: August 14th, 2016

When Jesus began to teach his disciples that he had come to suffer and give his life, Peter rebuked Jesus. But Jesus reminded Peter that he was thinking from a purely human perspective, not God’s perspective. Instead of avoiding death at all costs, Jesus called his followers together and reminded them that following him means giving up our life.

Following Jesus Christ demands that his disciples forfeit their lives to Him (v. 34). Four reasons:

  • Protecting your physical life brings no eternal gain (v. 35).
  • Protecting your earthly means is a waste of time and energy (v. 36).
  • Your eternal soul is priceless (v. 37).
  • Refusal to follow Jesus completely is a refusal to follow at all (v. 38).

Summing It All Up (Worship Service, August 7, 2016)

Title: Summing It All Up

Passage: 1 Corinthians 16:13-14

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: August 7th, 2016

The two verses contain are punchy, short commands that seem to flow with a kind of hurried earnestness. This is Paul getting in his last words with urgency and brevity. Looking closely, we find Paul’s words sum up the big ideas of 1 Corinthians as a whole. Moreover, the sort of commands that Paul gives to these Christians who lived in a secular, idolatrous city like Corinth transfer very easily over to our own lives as believers today. The commands sum up they can remain faithful to Christ in the future. The message is simple: Christians must remain committed to Jesus Christ.

The Work of the Lord Part 2 (Worship Service, July 31, 2016)

Title: The Work of the Lord

Passage: 1 Corinthians 16:5-12 Part 2

Speaker: Pastor Ryan Martin

Service: Sunday Morning Worship Service

Date: July 31, 2016

 

As Paul evangelized sinners and edified saints by preaching Christ crucified, he considered himself God’s fellow worker. In this text, we see the way he went about this in practice. The main point here is that Christian ministers must be faithful to the NT pattern of ministry. This is not only true for Christian ministers, but true for believers who serve the body of Christ with their gifts, for each of us have a responsibility to be making disciples through the word of God. This passage contains several lessons about the work of the Lord.
