1 Corinthians 2: 1-10

 

Monday – 1 Corinthians 2: 1-2

(Paul writes) “And I, when I came to you, brothers, did not come proclaiming to you the testimony of God with lofty speech or wisdom. For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.”

QUESTIONS

What do you notice in this passage, and why? What comes to mind when you hear the phrase “lofty speech or wisdom”? How would you describe the way Jesus taught people? Why do you think he often taught in parables or stories? Can you recall Jesus ever teaching something like, for instance, “5 ways to develop a healthy self-image”? Since Jesus is the perfect teacher, and we are his followers, what can we learn by his teaching style and substance? How do you think Paul’s teaching changed from when he was a Pharisee (named Saul) to when he became a follower of Jesus Christ? What comes to mind when you read, “For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified”? What do we learn about God through the cross of Christ? What do we learn about ourselves? What do we learn about Jesus through his willingness to go to the cross for us? What do we learn about our lives as his followers, when we are told to deny ourselves, take up our cross daily, and follow Jesus? How did God simplify Paul’s life as he learned about Jesus and his new life in Christ? How has God simplified your life as you learn about Jesus and your new life in Christ? Thank the Lord for His love and our new lives in him. Prayer
