1 Corinthians 1

Today we are reading 1 Corinthians 1. In this chapter we read about the necessity of humility in the church. “For consider your calling, brothers: not many of you were wise according to worldly standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth. But God chose what is foolish in the world to shame the wise; God chose what is weak in the world to shame the strong; God chose what is low and despised in the world, even things that are not, to bring to nothing things that are, so that no human being might boast in the presence of God. And because of him you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and redemption, so that, as it is written, “Let the one who boasts, boast in the Lord.”” 1 Corinthians‬ ‭1:26-31‬ ‭ESV‬‬ When are you most tempted to boast? How do you feel when someone around you is boasting? How do you feel after you have finished boasting and people look uncomfortable? May God give you a spirit of humility so that you exalt Jesus and not yourself. Pastor Tim
