Sermons about Jealousy
But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:57
What would it be like to be part of a church where love and commitment are normal and jealousy and strife are foreign? The Corinthians didn't know - and that's why Paul challenges them to grow up.
John Piper says, "Missions exists because worship doesn't." This is exactly we see with Paul in Athens in Acts 17:16-34. His jealousy for God's glory moved him to a clear and contextual witness to Christ. What's the point for us? The desire for God to be worshiped should fuel our mission to make God known.
Being wise is much than knowing stuff. Much, much more.
In Galatians 5:2-24, Paul warns the Galatians of two dangerous threats to their life of freedom: legalism (vv. 2-12) and license (vv. 13-24). In Galatians 5:13-24, Paul argues that Christian freedom does not mean freedom from all moral obligations. He recognizes that Christian freedom can be abused. Therefore, to guard believers against misunderstanding Christian freedom and thereby falling prey to the threat of license, In vv. 13-15, Paul defines the nature of Christian of freedom. In vv. 16-18, Paul describes the conflict of Christian freedom. Now, in vv. 19-23, to motivate believers to walk by the Spirit rather than by the flesh, Paul contrasts the fruit of Christian freedom. Specifically, he contrasts the works of the flesh (vv. 19-21) with the Fruit of the Spirit (vv. 22-23). Finally, Paul concludes by announcing the triumph of Christian Freedom (v. 24).
