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.
