Sunday Sermon: The Power Of The Gospel

The division in Corinth was severe so Paul calls them back to what is of primary importance. Paul deals with the division by pointing the people to Jesus and calls them to unify around the Gospel. This leads to Paul’s exposition on the power of the Gospel. One of the things to note as you read this passage is Paul’s comparison of the world and God. Paul explains that God’s wisdom and power is greater than the world’s power and wisdom. He explains that since God doesn’t necessarily do things in the way that we expect, then we see His wisdom and power in an unlikely place, the Gospel. So from this, the central truth I want you to remember is this: The Gospel exposes me to the power of God. There are three ways the power of the Gospel affects us.. Speaker: Stacy J Ross. 1 Corinthians 1:18-25. Series: Sin City.
