Conflict among Christians
The horse is one of the most beloved animals in America. But it’s also one of the most greedy animals. Left in a barn loaded with good feed, a horse will keep eating until it dies. It will literally eat itself to death. It just can’t say no when there’s tempting food around. Greed is not just an animal problem, of course. You and I also have to deal with the temptation of greed and self-centeredness..
Tom Constable continues our series, “Authentic Christianity,” from 1 Corinthians 6: 1-8, “Conflicts among Christians.” Personal conflicts among believers because of greed and self-centeredness (Civil Suits, not Criminal Acts) should be resolved within the church family to protect the reputation of Christ in the world.

Loving Well thru Church Discipline
The church in Corinth had been harboring a flagrant sinner for quite a while (1 Corinthians 5:1-13). Paul said plainly that their arrogance had led to complacency with sin, but it was time to for them to “remove the evil person” from their community of believers
Church discipline is never convenient or easy, but is necessary for flagrant sinners who are not willing to change their sinful behavior. Our relationship with people inside the church and our reputation with those outside the church is at stake. How? John Adair walks us through how to handle church discipline within the church and build relationships rather than judgement with unbelievers.

The Problem of Pride
More than any other sin, the Bible warns against pride – the spiritually lethal carbon monoxide of the church. It was the underlying problem of division and sin in the church of Corinth (1 Corinthians 4:6-21). More than just talk about the cancer of pride, however, Chris Buri encourages us with the cure administered by God’s Holy Spirit to cure the church and relationships.

How do I know if I’m a good father? When success in parenting or ministry becomes the same as success in the world, the servant of God evaluates success like a farmer, businessman, athlete or a politician. You look for increases size and growth, nickels or noses. Whom you are trying to please, however, determines what you will do to please them. Are you evaluating yourself and your ministry from God’s point of view, trying to please people, or with the world’s standard of quantitative analysis?
Success as a servant of God and a good father is summed up in one biblical word: Faithful. Praise God for being a faithful Heavenly Father to us. Larry Murray continues our series about Authentic Christianity from 1 Corinthians 4:1-5.

The Foolishness of Human Wisdom
In 1 Corinthians 3:16-23, Paul writes to the church to humble themselves to respond to the wisdom of God rather than human wisdom of this world. Jeff Edmunds encourages us to find our identity in Christ because we belong to Christ.

A New Future
We wrestle with the brokenness of the world we live in and see that in Revelation 21:1-8, God tells us that he plans to make the world new, dwell will his people, and right every wrong in the world. This hope for a future with Him gives us purpose for our present with one another.

A New Creation
The pressures of life, expectations of academic excellence, and the shame from his family led Ravi Zacharias to attempt suicide by swallowing poison at the age of 17. While in the hospital, however, Fred David, a Youth for Christ worker, shared a Bible with his mother and encouraged her to read to him from John 14. His mother read out loud Jesus’ words in John 14:19, “Because I live, you will live, too.”
Zacharias thought, “This is my only hope: A new way of living. Life as defined by the Author of Life.” Hearing about Christ’s death on the cross in his place, he committed his life to Him. And for next 48 years, he became an ambassador for Christ around the world as an author and a leading apologist. Through his radio program, Let My People Think, he explored issues such as the credibility of the Christian message and the Bible, the weakness of modern intellectual movements, and the uniqueness of Jesus Christ. Ravi Zacharias experienced how God makes all things new through faith in Christ.
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, and see, the new has come!” (2 Corinthians 5:17) This is the biography not only of Ravi Zacharias or the Apostle Paul, but of every believer in Christ! Truly, old things have passed away, and new things have come because God makes all things new.
