to the Corinthians continued to
address problems in the gifted
church. The majority of the mem
bers were Gentiles. I say that
because the issues they faced were
more worldly than simply being
forced to be Jews. Salvation came
when each individual accepted
Jesus as Saviour. Spiritual growth
(Justification) takes time, study,
prayer, and self discipline through
the Holy Spirit. There was no
Bible as we know it; so the early
believers relied on traveling
preachers (missionaries) and com
munications from the apostles.
Paul wanted unity and sound doc
trine for all of the early churches.
If believers aren't careful, the
world's standards will creep into
the church. They cause a mean
spun, uisuiiuy, ana pettiness
which hinder spiritual maturity.
According to the apostle, all gifts
were/are important to edify God
not the person with the gift! The
foundations for unity were given
in last week's lesson. Paul remind
ed them about the hollowness of
their pagan beliefs. They were
also reminded that those who pro
fess Jesus and then speak against
Him were not real.
Lesson: "All gifts come from
the same Spirit", declares Paul.
They are different in service and
in scope but none are more valued
that the others. Paul uses the gifts
metaphorically as a human body.
There are many parts but they
work together as one! As a mem
