Spiritual Things…Spiritual People

13 These are the things we are talking about—not with words taught by human wisdom but with

words taught by the Spirit—we are interpreting spiritual things to spiritual people.

(1 Corinthians 2:13)

Spiritual Things…Spiritual People

Good Day Family,

The Corinthian church was one in conflict. They competed with each other, gossiped about each other, and disrespected each other. That seems as far as the vision of the church of Jesus Christ as it is possible to get. Imagine how things would have changed for them if their focus was on praying for one another, serving with one another, and honoring one another.

The Apostle Paul wrote letters to the churches. Sometimes, they were letters of thanksgiving for their support, introduction before a visit, or encouragement for those who were suffering. This letter was an admonishment to remind the Corinthian people of who they were in Christ and what was expected of them as followers of The Way (Jesus)

Sometimes, we need reminding that we belong to God.

Our faith is more than belief, it is a commitment to place our lives in God’s hands and our hands in God’s plan. We are spiritual people concerned with spiritual things. That does not mean we are unconcerned with the world, but that our first perspective comes from a spiritual place. In that, we most reflect the God who created us in the divine image. That is our inheritance and God’s expectation. With the help of God, we can live it.

In the Spirit

Be well,

Pastor Cheryl

Let us encourage one another. Let us love our neighbor. Let us be the church.
