We all have one thing in common, the love of the Most High God. Adonai, our Almighty God, loves us with an unconditional and encompassing love. Paul starts his discussion with the Corinthians with the idea that that love of God should unify us. Additionally, as His chosen, We have an understanding of God and His Love that the world will never share. Many of the real and eternal principles of our relationship with God simply “DO NOT COMPUTE” to the world or its mindset.
Knowing this, the body of Christ must not fall into fussing and fighting about affiliation or leadership. Our leader must be the Lord and our affiliation is with the family of believers. We need to be each other’s greatest advocates not their adversaries. If we will practice that mindset, God will be glorified, and His message will win out over the chaotic messages of the world.
If we fail to unite, we will only add more noise to the world’s chaos. We will actually be aiding the enemy in causing the family of God to lose heart and fall prey to the worlds lies and lifestyle. It is a very clear objective, we respect and sit in awe of God, and then we love the family of believers!
God Bless You
I appeal to you, brothers and sisters,[a] in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly united in mind and thought. 11 My brothers and sisters, some from Chloe’s household have informed me that there are quarrels among you. 12 What I mean is this: One of you says, “I follow Paul”; another, “I follow Apollos”; another, “I follow Cephas[b]”; still another, “I follow Christ.”
13 Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Were you baptized in the name of Paul? 14 I thank God that I did not baptize any of you except Crispus and Gaius, 15 so no one can say that you were baptized in my name. 16 (Yes, I also baptized the household of Stephanas; beyond that, I don’t remember if I baptized anyone else.) 17 For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel—not with wisdom and eloquence, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power.
Christ Crucified Is God’s Power and Wisdom
18 For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. 19 For it is written:
“I will destroy the wisdom of the wise;
the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate.”[c]
20 Where is the wise person? Where is the teacher of the law? Where is the philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? 21 For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe. 22 Jews demand signs and Greeks look for wisdom, 23 but we preach Christ crucified: a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles, 24 but to those whom God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. 25 For the foolishness of God is wiser than human wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than human strength.
