Paul helped to establish the church in Corinth, but by the time he wrote his first letter to them, the church had already wandered from its foundation. Novel ideas were favored over solid biblical teaching, resulting in confusion, division, and spiritual infancy. Desiring that the church might be presented mature in Christ, Paul addressed a number of practical elements of faith. Noting striking resemblances between the Corinthian church and the Church today, Alistair Begg walks us through the warnings and exhortations of 1 Corinthians.
In volume six of this series, we take a close look at love—not the sentimental love of popular poetry and song lyrics, but genuine Christian love, which is servant to our wills rather than our emotions. Love, not giftedness, knowledge, or self-sacrifice, is the only true evidence of knowing God. When love is the basis for our actions, God uses our spiritual gifts to build up others and glorify Christ.
