Hello dear ones!
Still writing? Great!
I’ve received some questions as to why we are not writing the entire chapters. This is because we are writing through the major themes of 1 Corinthians. A few of the themes we are focusing on are:
• Be Sensitive to One Another
• Observing the Lord’s Supper
• Spiritual Gifts
• Unity in the Body of Christ
• All About Love
• The Gifts in Worship
• Order in Worship
• The Risen Christ
Even by going through the major themes we can still experience God’s word powerfully. However, if you desire to write the entire chapter please feel free to do so.
One of the most well known chapters of 1 Corinthians, is the 13th chapter. We affectionately refer to this chapter as the love chapter. Paul tells us what love is and what love is not, and how love is one of the greatest gifts we could ever receive. Chapter 15 is one of the most powerful chapters we will ever read. It is about the risen Christ, this is the reality of our faith. This chapter contains the basic tenants of the gospel. We see Christ from death to resurrection, ending with Christ’s rousing victory over death, hell, and the grave.
Like always, use this guide as you see fit. Allow God’s Word to permeate your soul.
“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” 1 Corinthians 10:31
Your friend in the journey,
We’re writing through 1 Corinthians! This is a powerful book with so much for us to explore. This is just part one, but still packed with all the power that Word of God possesses. Also, for those who would like to write up until Resurrection Day, here is a special Write the Word guide leading up to Resurrection day.
I’m standing on this entire Psalm that begins with one of my favorite passages: “God is our refuge and strength,
A very present help in trouble” (Psalm 46:1). The psalmist goes on to tell how he thwarts fear by trusting in God who is our refuge. The 10th verse, however, is a departure from the psalmist writing in the third person to God Himself giving us a directive. He says “be still.” In this passage be still literally means “to sink”, “to relax, or drop”. It is a wake up call to stop striving in your own efforts to fix a problem you cannot fix. He also says “know that I am God.” In the face of your problem, acknowledge who your God is! He is the Conqueror who is mighty to save! He is the Great Physician who is able to heal. He is the Strong Deliverer who can set us free. He is the One we run to; the only refuge that is sure and constant. This call was to the nations, and it is still for us today. Plan ahead, be careful, use precautions, please. But in the inward man, that place where you struggle with fear, anxiety, and unrest, be still. Sink! And acknowledge your God. He is your refuge and strength.
Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth! Psalm 46:10
