Click here for the reading
Commentary: Paul is writing to the church at Corinth because he has heard that there is division among them regarding who they follow. Paul reminds them it does not matter who led them to salvation, but that they have salvation through Jesus Christ. Today, Christianity is divided into many sects. We can also use Paul’s reminder: we are all children of Christ, who have accepted Him as our Lord and Savior. We are to receive our wisdom, true wisdom, through our Lord and not bow to whims, wishes, and wisdom of the world.
Focus Verses: 2:1-5 Often we think we must be great orators to spread God’s message. The Bible shares a different message. Who else, besides Paul, did not consider himself worthy of speaking for the Lord? What does this passage tell you about how we are to speak God’s message? How can you apply this to your life?
