Let's get started!!
Read 1 Corinthians 11-12, then Pray Psalm 141. The teaching in chapter 12 about “One Body with Many Parts” is a core value for following Jesus. Everyone is equal in value, but different in calling.
Read 1 Corinthians 13-14, then Pray Psalm 142. Chapters 11 through 14 are all about the gathering to worship. And nestled right in the middle of all these teachings is “the most excellent way”. The way of Love. This is what church should always be…and though we sometimes fail in this, Jesus never does. He sets us free to try again. Let’s keep trying. Let’s keep loving.
Read 1 Corinthians 15-16, then Pray Psalm 143. 1 Corinthians 15:3-8 is the kernel which gave birth to the Creeds of the Church. “What I received, I passed on to you as of first importance…” This is the Gospel. Jesus died for us. He was raised on the third day! According to the Scriptures! This is where our faith begins, this is where our faith continues, this is where our faith goes on until Jesus comes back. **Write 1 Corinthians 15:54-57 upon your heart. Say it out loud on a regular basis.
Read 2 Corinthians 1-2, then Pray Psalm 144. More verses to write upon your heart: 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 (this is what it looks like to follow Jesus!) and 1:20, all of His promises (from page one of the Bible to the final page) are YES in Jesus!!!!!
Read 2 Corinthians 3-4, then Pray Psalm 145. This movement from chapter 3 all the way to the end of chapter 5 is one connected teaching. Read 3:4-6 and 5:21 as the bookends and keep them in mind as you go slowly through chapters 3, 4 and 5. Precious words. Powerful words. Words that paint the picture of how we live in this broken world, where our power comes from, and what we are to do with it…
Read 2 Corinthians 5-6, then Pray Psalm 146. 6:14 is a challenging command. However it must never be taken apart from the teaching in chapters 3-5. It is because of 3-5 that we are to think in terms of 6:14. So if a person finds themselves “unequally yoked,” this is not teaching us to immediately end the relationship. On the contrary, we use 5:13-5:21 to navigate the relationships we are in, keeping 6:14 and following passages in mind. Love is the way forward!
Read 2 Corinthians 7-8, then Pray Psalm 147. Paul engages a personal matter he as been alluding to throughout the letter: others have come to Corinth to challenge Paul & Timothy’s authority, calling themselves “super apostles”. As he leads up to the point where he will defend himself (in chapter 11) he tells the story of their adventures around the region.
