MID-WEEK

Paul was simply astonished by the selfishness of the Corinthians.

How would Paul experience the lifestyle of our church if he visited MCC?

Friends of Jesus,

The church in Corinth amazed Paul with their selfishness. They were in disarray!

They had gender role confusion, factions, and unworthy communion celebrations.

It was so bad that some people were getting sick and even put to death by God’s judgment.

May we have the attitude of Jesus, who did not count equality with God as something to be used to his own advantage.

Rather he made himself nothing. A servant.

May we have the humility of Jesus and walk together in good order and care for one another.

In the humility of Jesus with you, Denis
