1 Corinthians 3:1-9 Paul Teaches the Fleshly Corinthians to be Spiritual Pastor Eric Douma June 13, 2010

Slide 2

The Issue In Corinthians 3:1-4 Interpretations of "Otherworldly versus physical" 1. The "otherworldly" are Christians who have accomplished a predominant level by being purified through water by the H.S. Carnal Christians are devotees, however don\'t have "the endowments of the Spirit." 2. The "otherworldly" are adherents. Those of the tissue are unbelievers. Paul, in this manner, is addressing just those in the assemblage that are unbelievers who were making issues. 3. The "carnal" Corinthians do have the Holy Spirit, yet they are acting like those on the planet. Paul is calling them out in a manner that they understand they should quit acting like those of this age. (Position versus Action) Spiritual Fleshly

The Corinthians Act Like Those of This Age 1 Cor 3:1 And I, brethren, couldn\'t address you as to profound men, yet as to men of substance, as to newborn children in Christ . Profound = Links back to 1 Cor 2:14-15 But a characteristic man does not acknowledge the things of the Spirit of God… he can\'t comprehend them… But he who is otherworldly assesses all things… Men of substance = Biting incongruity – in that the Corinthians gloated in being otherworldly to the point of preventing the significance from securing the tissue. (They had arrived! This is the reason they deny the revival 1 Cor 15:12). Babies in Christ = joins back to 2:6 "Yet we talk astuteness among the individuals who are adult… "

Division Among The Corinthians 1 Cor 3:2-3 I gave you drain to drink, not strong sustenance ; for you were not yet ready to get it . Without a doubt, even now you are not yet capable, for you are still physical. For since there is desire and strife among you, will be you not carnal, and would you say you are not strolling like simple men? The contention of 2:6–16 suggests that for Paul the good news of the executed one is both "milk" and "strong sustenance." As milk it is the uplifting news of salvation; as strong nourishment it is understanding that the whole Christian life is predicated on the same reality—and the individuals who have the Spirit ought to so comprehend the "riddle." Thus the Corinthians needn\'t bother with an adjustment in eating routine yet an adjustment in context. As Morna Hooker pleasantly puts it: "Yet while he utilizes their dialect, the principal contrast in Paul\'s psyche is not between two entirely distinctive eating regimens which he brings to the table, yet between the genuine sustenance of the Gospel with which he has encouraged them (whether milk or meat) and the manufactured substitutes which the Corinthians have preferred."

Division Among The Corinthians 1 Cor 3:2-3 I gave you drain to drink, not strong nourishment; for you were not yet ready to get it . Without a doubt, even now you are not yet capable, for you are still carnal. For since there is envy and strife among you, will be you not carnal, and would you say you are not strolling like negligible men? For = presents the proof of their "carnal conduct" Jealousy and strife = review that the Corinthians were bragging in themselves since they had raised their own particular insight to being the zenith of what they craved to achieve. (Desire better rendered "competition" BAGD) Walking = peripatew used to demonstrate the way one lives. The Corinthians were living conflicting with their calling.

Boasting Vicariously Through Leaders 1 Cor 3:4 For when one says, "I am of Paul," and another, "I am of Apollos," would you say you are not minor men? * The gloating in pioneers was driven by the Corinthians\' yearning to be prevalent in astuteness than their companions. Small scale Application : 1. I am a "Calvinist" (Used as an approach to depict a framework that speaks to how one comprehends Scripture.) 2. I am a "Calvinist" ( Used parochially: "John Calvin\'s insight and comprehension of Scripture without a doubt can\'t be coordinated.")

Slide 7

The Need For Biblical Exegesis God\'s Word Sproul, Macarthur, Carson, Piper, Geisler, Calvin, Wise 1. The congregation everywhere should be prepared to perceive solid and feeble interpretative contentions. 2. Excessively numerous sermons are "stories" that don\'t grapple with what the Bible educates. 3. Excessively numerous theological colleges are not educating scriptural analysis since they have abandoned information itself!

Slide 8

Leaders Are Servants: No More 1 Cor 3:5-6 What then is Apollos? What\'s more, what is Paul? Workers through whom you accepted , even as the Lord offered chance to every one. I planted, Apollos watered, however God was bringing on the development . Through = Paul is indicating out that the Corinthians didn\'t accept "in" Paul or Apollos, however "through" them. Accepted = Aorist, dynamic, characteristic – shows the purpose of time before that the Corinthians trusted The Lord provided for every one = 2 Points: 1. The contrasts amongst Paul and Apollos that isolated the wayward Corinthians were planned by God for their great. 2. The Corinthians ought to concentrate on the Lord, not His hirelings

The Farming Analogy 1. Grower: Paul 2. Irrigator: Apollos 3. Crop: Corinthians 4. Reason for development: God Application: No one can make "otherworldly yields." Christians are simply contracted hands who work for a God that powerfully causes development. (Book of scriptures Study Story)

Slide 10

Paul and Apollos: God\'s Hired Hands 1 Cor 3:7-9 So then neither the person who plants nor the person who waters is anything, yet God who causes the development. Presently he who plants and he who waters are one; however every will get his own prize as indicated by his own work. For we are God\'s kindred laborers; you are God\'s field, God\'s building. Reward as per work : Looks forward to 3:10-15 which cautions the educators of Corinth to expand upon the gospel (establishment) 2 Analogies: We are God\'s 1. field 2. building

Slide 11

Summary Paul\'s words in 1 Cor 3:1-9 apply to both ministry and common people alike. Ministers and senior citizens ought to never forget that they are "procured hands" and that the congregation is Christ\'s run, not the pioneer\'s close to home venture. Common people should likewise recall that their pioneer\'s words are to be esteemed on the off chance that they speak to God\'s pledge, and rejected on the off chance that they don\'t.
