This Sunday we wrap up our 4-week series studying Paul's statement to the church in Corinth, drawn from I Corinthians 2:2.
My apologies for being negligent getting each week loaded during the preceeding week. It was not my intention to fall so far behind but the summer has offered challenges unforeseen a time ago.
Anyway, as we finish up studying Paul's statement, we arrive at the crux of the Gospel Message. This Paul knew and hence his desire to focus on the one thing. But, is there more for us here?
We find ourselves in a variety of 'communities'. Paul's message was for the community - here, specifically for the young church in Corinth (among you). Paul was determined (I decided) to share is knowledge of one subject, rather than the many subjects of which he could have shared (to know). The one subject was the Gospel Message. Paul further refines this down to "Jesus Christ and Him crucified."
Back to the various communities in which we find ourselves. When in our various communities, can we decide to know one thing -- Jesus Christ? I know we are tempted to talk and share on many subjects - the news overloads us with biased journalism every day. Can we decide to know one thing? How would society be different if Followers of the Way practiced this?
