1 Corinthians 1:1-9 (1 Corinthians 1:1-9)Tim Douglass, May 10, 2020
Part of the 1 Corinthians series, preached at a Sunday Morning service
This week we are beginning a new series in First Corinthians. This continues to follow the letters of the Apostle Paul in chronological sequence as they were written. Paul had established the Corinthian church around 50-52AD during his second missionary journey. This letter is sent to them probably from Ephesus during his third missionary trip and is in response to things that he is hearing about the church there. As we explore the wide variety of topics covered in the letter it becomes obvious that the Corinthian church had a lot of problems that needed to be solved and that Paul was trying to help them however he could.

1 Corinthians 1:1-9
1Paul, called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother, 2Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both theirs and ours: 3Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. 4I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ; 5That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge; 6Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you: 7So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ: 8Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord. (KJV)
