Morning Light – 1 Corinthians 3

Source: https://ift.tt/2xR2Q1o Today: [1 Corinthians 3:] Spiritual or Carnal? In chapter 3 of 1 Corinthians, we consider the meaning of two words that Paul coins being that of “spiritual” or “carnal.” The Corinthians had a problem from Paul’s point of view because they understood the kingdom from a metric much smaller than the measure God uses. They were choosing one teacher over another and setting up camps between them which Paul carefully and resolutely tears down as we should likewise allow to happen if we are thinking such things today. [1Co 3:1-23 KJV] 1 And I, brethren, could not speak … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – 1 Corinthians 2

Source: https://ift.tt/2MYP4Pz Today: [1 Corinthians 2:] Fathoming the Trackless Depths of God: In chapter 2 of 1 Corinthians Paul underscores the foolishness of preaching but emphasizes that the wisdom of God is beyond natural comprehension. There are those who consider themselves princes of popularity that mainstream Christianity lauds as modern-day voices from heaven, but they are excluded to the shallows of human reasoning. For those that have the mind of the Spirit, however, the deep treasuries of God’s mysteries stand open wide inviting our inquiry.

Morning Light – 1 Corinthians 1:  Paul Writes to the Corinthians

Source: https://ift.tt/2xLm34l Today: [1 Corinthians 1:] Paul Writes to the Corinthians: In Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians he writes to address several troublesome issues. The Corinthians are lax in their internal disciplines; they have notoriously careless sexual mores. They are divided amidst one another to the point that many members of the church are suing one another before the courts. We couldn’t find a more apt and fitting book of the Bible to apply to church culture today as we know it.

Morning Light – Romans 16:  Getting Up and Out of the Status Quo

Source: https://ift.tt/2MMbT8Z Today: [Romans 16:] Getting Up and Out of the Status Quo: Are you tired of the same-old, same-old? God has something different in mind for you! In Romans 16 Paul does, in fact, conclude his letter with explicit expressions of his apostolic authority. He mandates these people who had never met him face to face to accept those he would send to them. He provoked them to identify those around them who were bringing them personally and the work of the church down in defeat. He assures them that Satan would be bruised under their feet if they … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – Romans 15:  Paul’s First Closing of the Epistle to the Romans

Source: https://ift.tt/2xtrzbH Today: [Romans 15:] Paul’s First Closing of the Epistle to the Romans: In Romans 15 Paul attempts to sum up his letter (with one chapter however yet to be written). He gives the strongest appeal to Gentile believers to be patient with the Judaizers and legalists who believe in “Christ plus-“ their good works as the basis of an approach to God and capitulates finally to accepting the scope of his ministry as being to the Gentiles and not to his kinsmen the Jews. [Rom 15:1-14 KJV] 1 We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – Romans 14:  Allowances and Concessions in God

Today: [Romans 14:] Today: [Romans 14:] Allowances and Concessions in God: In chapter 14 of Romans Paul addresses very personal issues such as diet and holy days. Believers in his time were condemning one another to hell because they ate meat or worshipped on a wrong day. Things have changed little in our own day as the existence of the Christian denominational system attests. Paul gives us his judgment in pointing out allowances we may feel free to live out in our private lives and concessions we must make in our public testimony. [Rom 14:1-23 KJV] 1 Him that is … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – Romans 13:  Be Subject to the Higher Powers

Source: https://ift.tt/2CWPqXj Today: [Romans 13:] Be Subject to the Higher Powers: In Romans 13 Paul challenges the thinking of his fellow citizens regarding their attitudes toward the Roman empire. Could this chapter have any relevance whatsoever for modern Christians? Today political upheaval is an absolute art form even among the community of believers. What is your idea of a proper attitude toward government? Does it line up with Romans 13 and if not do we have permission to just disregard these particular passages as not applying to our day or our generation?

Morning Light – Romans 12:  What is Your Office Gift?

Source: https://ift.tt/2Mu4HhG Today: [Romans 12:] What is Your Office Gift? Did you know that you are called to an office gift from God? Today modern Christianity only recognizes one or two ministry offices, but Paul teaches something very different in Romans 12. You have a calling, and a place to serve and this chapter will help you find out what that is. [Rom 12:1-21 KJV] 1 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, [which is] your reasonable service. 2 And be not conformed to this … (click link or title to continue)

Morning Light – Romans 11:  Is Christianity Too Big to Fail?

Source: https://ift.tt/2NAg7W2 Today: [Romans 11:] Is Christianity Too Big to Fail? In Romans 11 Paul points out the Judaism has descended into blindness and a spirit of slumber because they did not know the day of their visitation. They fell into declension Paul says so that the gospel might be made known to the Gentile nations. What of our day? The warning from Paul is if God broke off Judaism as a natural branch in Himself what makes us think that Christianity as a wild olive branch is unconditionally secure?
