1 Corinthians 13:1-13
The church in Corinth was filled with talented people. God had given them a whole array of gifts and abilities and they felt driven to use those gifts and abilities for God. But as you read through First Corinthians you get the impression that they really didn’t like each other that much. They argued over who had the best gifts (12:4), and over who had been baptized by whom (1:10-17), and were even in the habit of suing one another (6:7). They were a church that was religious, talented and purpose driven but they had forgotten how to love. In this sermon, we will examine what is truly needed to be a church that can “turn the world upside down”.
