God has a plan for every Christian’s life. We can discover what this Will is for your life by reading the Word of God; the Will of God is the Word of God. They are one in the same. Our responsibility is to heed God’s Word, to find out what His Will is for [...]
Paul has told the Christians spouse who is married to an unbeliever to remain with that person as long as the unbeliever can remain with the Christian. Now, in the following verse, he explains a good reason for this:
1 Corinthians 7:16 “For what knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save thy husband? [...]
There are times when a person becomes a Christian that their spouse remains unsaved. What is a Christian man or woman to do when they are faced with these situations? The apostle Paul provides guidance to us in 1 Corinthians 7:12-15.
1 Corinthians 7:12-15 “But to the rest speak I, not the Lord: If [...]
Marriage is a picture of the relationship between the church and Jesus Christ. Jesus is referred to in the Bible as the Bridegroom, and the church is referred to as the bride.

The apostle Paul lays out a blueprint for a Godly marriage in 1 Corinthians chapter 7. As I studies these first four verses, I am reminded of the parallel between our earthly marriage and the church’s marriage to the Bridegroom. As we read these verses, we can read the practical, Godly wisdom from God, [...]
We owe it to the Lord to do good for Him. We owe Him this because of what He did for us. Not everyone is aware of this obligation that we have to God. Paul talks in 1 Corinthians 6 about avoiding sin, specifically about avoiding the sin of lust. He talks about both [...]
Christians as a collective unit today are supposed to represent the body of Christ. The world should look at the Christian community and see Christ walking on earth.

1 Corinthians 6:13,14 “Meats for the belly, and the belly [...]
