Wisdom, Forgiveness, and the Gospel
21st May 2023 | Charles Glass | 1 Corinthians 6:1-11
In this sermon from 1 Corinthians 6:1-11, Charles speak about the conflict within the Corinthian church. He explains that unforgiveness stops us from being effective in our christian life. We follow a saviour who never stood on His rights. When He was betrayed, denied, and insulted, He did not seek revenge but sought restoration and reconciliation. We, as those who put our trust in Him are called to do the same in our relationships. We dishonour the gospel when we do not seek forgiveness and reconciliation with our brothers and sister in Christ.
In this letter, Paul challenges the Church in Corinth to live countercultural lives to the Roman society they were in. In the same way, we find that to faithfully live as Christ's followers in our context requires us to sometimes go against the grain.
