1 CORINTHIANS: A Challenge

1CorinthiansApparently Corinth was the kind of city that would feel right at home in the twenty-first century.  It was full of people who love the “good” life of evil vices.  Into this decadence the apostle Paul sends a letter full of instruction and warning to Christian believers.  He challenges them to godliness of character, true love, clean living, and unity among themselves.  Not a bad or inappropriate challenge for us today.  Paul understood that purity of heart and life goes hand and hand with following Christ, in a way that both honors Him and is a magnet for those considering biblical faith.
