When Paul entered the city of Corinth, he found those coming to faith struggling with discovering a new sexual ethic which was not filled with shame and regret. Paul teaches them it in this passage and we need to rediscover this truth.
Paul while dealing with the Corinth Church and lawsuits uncovers an issue we all must take seriously - our credibility. We have to figure out how to honor Christ while loving and living with people who think differently than we do.
Are you a thermostat or a thermometer? Do you simply reflect what is going on around you or do you set the example? Paul set the example and urged the church in Corinth to do the same. Are you setting the example at home, school, work, and in the community?
In the intelligence age, we have lost the wisdom filter from all the information we are consuming. This can be a problem we should deal with. As we follow Jesus, where do we look to for wisdom? Wisdom simply put is God's point of view. Paul tells the church in Corinth the source of wisdom. It is available to us as well.
