December 3, 2017 – Strengthened and Blameless – 1 Corinthians 1: 3-9

The Bible readings for the first couple of Sundays in Advent tend to be dark and bring warnings of the end times. This darkness, as a preparation for Christmas is meant to provide contrast to Christ, the Light of the world. However, there is plenty of contrast to be found in Paul’s brief introductory words to the people of Corinth. Today we will consider how the living conditions in Corinth were not only similar to our world, but how they challenged Christian people to live out the Gospel every day. We will find the promise of being strengthened and made blameless is a remarkable promise for all of us.
