1 Corinthians 3:1-9, Discern How Things Grow

The Corinthian church presented quite a problem for the apostle Paul. People within the church thought too highly of themselves as better than everyone else. Paul tried his best throughout his letter to point out the error of their ways with the hope that they would change.

Paul uses the metaphor of an infant to describe how a person comes to faith. The new believer learns the basics of the faith: the starting point is entering into a relationship with Jesus Christ. The next steps would be reading the Bible, attending worship, and learning from other believers. These steps can be compared to the milk that nourishes infants. Just as an infant grows and begins to eat solid food so the believer should continue to grow and mature in the faith.

The task of the church is to help people grow in their faith. One way is by providing instruction and resources. To make disciples we have to dig deep into God’s Word. We have to step outside of our comfort zones and serve others in Jesus’ name. Paul reminded the Corinthians that each individual had different gifts, and the church will thrive when one person’s gifts are used in conjunction with other gifts within the congregation.  IL-WOONG.

Our Mission is to
Connect with people in Jesus;
Build each other up in faith; and to
