Here’s a little reflection nugget to chew on from the opening chapters of 1 Corinthians (1-4) as we continue our Cross Culture series:
As Paul moves from chapter 1 then 2 and then into chapter 3 he is trying to show the Corinthians (and you and I) the cross is not just a past place of substitution, but a present place of execution. The cross is not just a past place of substitution, but a present place of execution — for our pride and boasting. And it is our path to glory.
This appears to be at the heart of what it means to be spiritual. … How have you been engaged in spiritual activity today?
If you haven’t started, it’s not too late to dive into the ’13 letters’ reading plan (all of Paul’s New Testament letters). I’m finished 1 Corinthians and looking forward to tucking into 2 Corinthians.
