Sermons on 1 Corinthians

God Gives the Growth

In this Sunday’s text, Paul suggests to the church in Corinth that attachments to a particular human leader, to a particular position, or a particular building may be a misdirection of our focus when we should instead grow our attachment to God.

With a Demonstration

We are continuing the series Somos del Señor guided by Paul’s first letter to the church in Corinth. Over these last several weeks, we have explored Paul’s reminder that—even in our differences—God continues to call and empower us all. Paul’s words in this text challenge us to show that we are changed by God’s Spirit. Are we doing it? Are we living the gospel with our whole selves at all times?

Consider Your Call

This week’s text takes a number of twists and turns and seems to conflate wisdom and foolishness. Could it be possible that Paul is suggesting that we are called to foolishness?

Same Mind & Same Purpose

In the text for this Sunday, Paul very clearly addresses the reality of division in the church. As members and participants in a United Methodist Church, we may find this particularly poignant today. Yet, Paul reminds his readers that we belong to Christ.

You Are Not Lacking

This week’s text is the introduction to Paul’s first letter to the church in Corinth. Paul identifies himself and expresses gratitude. In doing so, Paul reminds his audience of our unity in Christ Jesus.

Reconciling Ministry

This Sunday we continue our (short) series called Generation to Generation. This week, Pastor Christopher brings a message celebrating the diversity of PB UMC!

Religion & Politics

This Sunday we near the end of our series on The Power of Words as we jump into the potentially challenging subjects of religion and politics. It is my hope that we will take time to listen and to understand, and surely to rely on the God who unites us in love.

One Resurrection

Pastor Bob concludes the sermon series “One” focusing this week on Paul’s view of resurrection
