This Sunday we begin a new preaching series from First Corinthians called Seeing Everything Through a New Lens. To a church with some serious relational conflict, moral compromise, and theological confusion, Paul responds with “the word of the cross,” helping them see how Jesus’ death and resurrection has changed everything and urging them to view everything through the lens of the gospel.
“The word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.” (1 Corinthians 1:18)
We will begin the series with a reading service, reading the first six chapters of First Corinthians, followed by a short message of introduction to this epistle from Randall Gruendyke.
Would you pray for our preaching team this fall – Jackson Randall, Randall Gruendyke, Erik Thoennes, Rob Lister, Rob Price, Jason Oakes, Moyer Hubbard, and Kenny Clark – that through the preaching of each one, God would give growth?
“What then is Apollos? What is Paul? Servants through whom you believed, as the Lord assigned to each. I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth. So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth.” (1 Corinthians 3:5-7)
And pray for our Grace family as we study this letter together, that the word of Christ would dwell more and more richly in us.
See you Sunday. Let’s come hungry!
