This is a Blog for those interested in following hard after His heart. Those willing to strive to live a moment by moment life as we go through the transformation process with Him. It is not an easy life but the Father expects each of us to become an offering for His pleasure. So, if this is you, then let’s journey together hand in hand. I am humbled that you have chosen to walk with me. Thanks!

The Scriptures —Study 2— 1 Corinthians 1:18-2:16
Study 2 From The Book of 1 Corinthians Is: 1
1.List Paul’s reasons for
preaching the word of the cross in the way he did. See verses 1:17-2: 5.
2.See 2:6-3:2. What does Paul teach here about (a) ‘human
wisdom’, and (b) ‘a secret and hidden wisdom of God’? How is the latter to be
possessed, and by whom alone is it understood?
3.Looking back over the passage,
pick out the work of the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit and the human
preacher respectively in man’s salvation. Is the Lord Jesus Christ to you all
that Paul speaks of in 1:30, 31?
1.2:6. There would appear to be three groups of people in Paul’s
mind: (a) ‘the mature’ (cf. ‘spiritual men’, 3:1); (b) ‘men of the flesh’ (or
‘babes in Christ’ 3:1); (c) ‘the unspiritual’ (or ‘natural’) man of 2:14.
2. 2:12, 13. The wisdom of God
can be understood by the preacher, interpreted and imparted to others and
received by the hearers, only through the aid of the Holy Spirit. Cf. 2:4, 5.
