It was really refreshing to hear from Paul again this morning. I feel endeared to the book of Corinthians, because Corinth kind of reminds me of my home town. A port city, a melting pot of people and a chip on it’s shoulder. Here’s a little video about it, watch even the first couple minutes!
Paul lived and ministered in Corinth for a while, and after leaving, started hearing about some major problems going on in the church. These letters address some of the main issues that were popping up.
“He will keep you strong to the end so that you will be free from all blame on the day when our Lord Jesus Christ returns. God will do this, for he is faithful to do what he says, and he has invited you into partnership with his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.”
God is faithful to do what he says. There’s a lot of weight to these first two chapters, a lot of important concepts church attenders should read and take note of. But today I just needed the simple reminder that God is faithful and doesn’t flake out on his promises. He doesn’t tell me what I want to hear, he tells me what I need to hear, the truth.
What is something God has told you that you need to trust in?
