1 Corinthians 1:1-9 - Part 2 (1 Corinthians 1:1-9)

Tim Douglass, May 17, 2020
Part of the 1 Corinthians series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

When we first look at the opening of 1 Corinthians we might notice something in these first few verses. Paul mentions Jesus Christ 9 times in the 9 verses we are looking at here (also 10 times in the first 10 verses). Thinking about that it becomes apparent to me that no matter what else this letter is about, it is centered around Jesus Christ and that He is what is uppermost in Paul’s mind. There are issues and challenges, but Jesus is greater than them all and more important than any or all of them.

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)
