I Corinthians 5-11, Paul continues to write encouragement and challenges the Church in Corinth. 1 Corinthians is part of our summer reading this year. To see some of the other reading and lessons learned from Romans and the beginning of 1 Corinthians, click here.

This past week we read 1 Corinthians 5-11. If you haven’t already, take time to read through these passages and share below what stands out to you from them. Here are 3 lessons learned and insights from these chapters.

You Can Serve God in All Situations

Serving God and serving others is a great way to grow in your faith. However, there can be a tendency to limit serving God serving in the Church, a homeless shelter, soup kitchen or camp. There are other ways to serve God and we can serve God in all situations we are in. Read this 1 Corinthians 7 and watch this devotional and see how you can serve God where you are at today.

Jesus Can Help You Overcome Temptation

Dealing with and overcoming temptation is a daily occurrence in our faith. When we fail, our faith suffers. The good news is that Paul reminds us n 1 Corinthians 10 Jesus can and will help you overcome that temptation and get through it. See how in the passage and in this devotional.

communionCommunion is Important to Participate in

Communion is an essential part of our faith. Christ instituted it at the last supper before his death and resurrection. We are called to participate in communion as a remembrance of Christ and what He did for us. That is why we, at New Life, participate in it every Sunday. Read more about this as Paul encourages us in 1 Corinthians 11 and in this devotional.
