1 Corinthians 6:1-11 – Why not rather be cheated?

How should we deal with real life situations where we trusted someone and they abused our trust?  (Erik Pattison, 15 May 2022.  Bible reading by Keziah Davidge)

Matthew 3:13 - 4:4 Jesus' Baptism - heading to the Cross

His Baptism in the river Jordan was the moment of decision when Jesus commits Himself to the Father's will alone and takes His first step to His passion.

There is a connection between Jesus' Baptism and ours. (Erik Pattison 3rd Apr 2022, Bible Reading by Susan Pattison)

1 Corinthians 2 – How the Holy Spirit works

Paul has some surprising things to say about what is Christian wisdom, maturity, and freedom. The Corinthians should have matured but were still acting like unbelievers. Why? And how can we avoid being like that?  (Erik Pattison, 20 March 2022.  Bible reading by Anna Workman)

1 Corinthians 1:18 – 2:5 – The Wisdom of the Cross

God's strategy is very surprising. He uses what the world thinks is nothing to destroy what the world thinks is important.  God can even use you. 

What are we trusting in?
Are we surrendered to his way?
Do we accept that God can be glorified in our life?
And do we rely on him?

(Jon Mabbutt, 13 March 2022.  Bible reading by Suzy Ssenabulya)

1 Corinthians 1:10-17 – Unity in the church

Our differences are a strength, but we shouldn't allow divisive attitudes to form in our hearts. The key to doing this is to focus on unity in the Cross of Christ.  How are you going about actively building unity in our church?  (Tony Uddin, 6 March 2022.  Bible reading by Yinka Oladejo)

1 Corinthians 1:1-9 – Reading somebody else's letter?

Introducing a new series on Paul's first letter to the church at Corinth. In this passage, the focus is on the initiating call of God, and then the response that we make as we call on the name of the Lord Jesus. Where do you see yourself in that picture? Is there anything you need to do in response to the call of God? (Bex White, 27 February 2022. Bible reading by Lesley Goddard.)

Ephesians 5:12-33 – Church is more than a phase

To understand this passage, start from the end. It is written for all of us, and Paul's point is that marriage is something like Church.  "Here Comes the Church!"  In what ways do you see Jesus washing, cleansing and making his church spotless?  (John Day, 13 February 2022)
