Individualism & the Gospel
As Americans we are often dominated by a concern for the preservation of individual rights. While this can be good, it can also pave the way for self-centerdness, which obscures Christ and our ability to focus on the Gospel.
This Sunday we'll cover the first half of 1 Corinthians 9, in which Paul continues to assault the Corinthians' selfishness by laying down his own rights for their sake. We have much to learn from this text.
Here are a few Scriptures to prepare our minds and hearts for Sunday:
- 1 Corinthians 9:1–18 (sermont text)
- Philippians 2:1–11 (beautiful passage about Jesus’ laying down his rights for our good)
Grace and peace,
