1 Corinthians 10:1-13

Are you a true believer? In the South it is tempting to believe that just going to church each week will keep us from spending eternity separated from God. In fact, it is easy to cling to an assurance of salvation that we don’t actually have. Paul reminded the Corinthians of this in chapter 10 by pointing out the history of their spiritual ancestors – the Jews. Paul recounts for the Corinthians the spiritual history of the Jews and how they continually disappointed the Holy One by their sin. The lesson for the Corinthians (and us) is that we often need to be reminded that God is Holy, Just, and Righteous. It is easy to talk about God as merciful and loving while neglecting His holiness and purity that demands a blood sacrifice for the atonement of sins. This week we were reminded of how God is love, but He is also the reigning King of Glory.

Have you considered whether Jesus is your King? If you would like to talk more about how your story and the Gospel connect, we would love to hear from you. If you have questions, please feel free to ask them here.
