I Corinthians 16: 1-24

I Corinthians 16 summarizes the first 15 chapters of I Cor. and sets practical ways for the Corinthian church to live out their lives in a God-honoring way. Paul ends I Corinthians with a list of to-dos that are meant for the church’s edification and growth in spiritual maturity. Three areas we can glean from the text for our 2022 church context is within the areas of:

  1. Stewardship
  2. Faithfulness
  3. Obedience

Paul is consistent throughout I Corinthians and stays on message through all 16 chapters as he uproots the behaviors, mindsets, values that are not rooted in the Christian faith.
