Love Knows No Limits - 1 Corinthians 13:1-13

Love is an eternal gift. (13:8-13)

A Feeding Frenzy - 1 Corinthians 11:17-34

In 1 Corinthians 11:17-34, we will discover that God will not tolerate divisions and distinctions within His body - the church. The reason is simple: God is dead serious about His body. Here Paul provides three exhortations for us to follow: 1. Include the entire body of Christ in worship. (11:17-22) 2. Recapture the significance of the Lord's Supper. (11:23-26) 3. Judge yourself to avoid God's judgement. (11:27-34)

Glory or Shame? - 1 Corinthians 11:2-16

In 1 Corinthians 11:2-16, we will consider the roles of men and women in the church. In this passage, Paul will say, "Honor your head." Paul share three principles in these verses that will guide us in understanding a woman's role in the church. 1. Honor your head for the sake of biblical teaching. (11:2-6) 2. Honor your head for the sake of creation. (11:7-12) 3. Honor your head for the sake of pattern of nature. (11:13-16)
