The Cross and Christian Community
This series through 1 and 2 Corinthians shows us how the cross should affect everything about the Christian life. Paul addresses everything from suffering to sexual immorality to marriage to leadership to spiritual gifts to the resurrection, and a number of topics in between. Because the Corinthians were being lured by the wisdom of the world, Paul had to remind them that there is no room for pride or divisiveness for those who belong to a crucified Savior. We continue to need this cross-shaped message in our own day.
