Last week we considered the importance of Church Discipline in God’s community to maintain the purity of doctrine and purity of life. The greatest obstacle to maintain purity in our lives is our own sin. In this passage, we continue on the same topic and learn the importance of holiness and the danger of sin.
Making disciples is not a commission given to just Apostles only but to every Christian as well. It implies that every Christian’s greatest calling in life is to work for the extension of God’s kingdom by joining with other believers in this endeavor; discipleship is a community project. In this passage, we learn how to make disciples for Christ by first becoming a disciple of Christ.
Pastors in the Bible are mainly called to feed God’s sheep i.e His children. In other words, they’re called to be the stewards of God’s household. But how does our culture and our society define the office of a Pastor? Do they have balanced view of Pastors? In this passage, we learn how we can avoid from Idolizing a Pastor and also to prevent ourselves from undermining the calling of a Pastor.
We begin a new series on 1 Corinthians because of its variety of issues applicable to us. This book deals with Church unity, worship, Church discipline, sexual immorality, fellowship, tongues and prophecies, relational conflicts, resurrection and many others. In this sermon, the preacher starts with the book by defining what Christ’s church is all about.
Jesus Christ picked up the least in the society to change the whole course of this world. He chose his disciples to establish his church and spread the gospel all over the world.

Listen to this sermon on what does it actually mean to be a follower of Jesus Christ, our Savior and King.
