1 Corinthians: Growing a Spirit-filled church.
In the first letter to the Corinthians, Paul addresses the problems of disunity, immorality, lawsuits, prostitution, marriage, Christian freedom, spiritual gifts and resurrection, and seeks to clarify the church’s understanding of these issues. Even though it was written 2,000 years ago, Paul’s letter is a rich resource for us in the twenty-first century as we seek to ‘do church’. Our culture exerts enormous pressures on us as the Greco-Roman culture did on the Corinthian church and we are called to be counter-cultural people, demonstrating the power of the kingdom of God today.
Icebreakers, Bible readings, eye openers, discussion starters, personal application make this a rich resource for group or individual study.
