Work! (A Study of I Corinthians 16)

02 May

Friends: If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you know that my friend Frank (in New Jersey) and I have been doing an email Bible study for over a year. We read the same chapter every day for a week — and then send a brief email of encouragement to each other. We’ve completed most of the epistles of the New Testament — and it’s been a great discipline for both of us.

We’re now in the book of I Corinthians. And we just started reading I Corinthians 15 on Easter Sunday! We are now concluding I Corinthians and I want to post a few outlines on the last chapter, chapter 16.

There may be a few of you who remember Maynard G. Krebbs from the “Dobie Gillis” show. He was a hippie kind of guy and whenever he heard the word “work” he would respond in great shock and terror “WORK?!”

Work! (A Study of I Corinthians 16)

In this chapter we have three references to the Christian’s work. Notice if you will —

I.  God Opens Doors for Effective Work (v. 9)

II. We Should Honor Those Who Carry on the Work of the Lord (v. 10)

III. Mutual Submission Should Mark Our Conduct with Others Who Join in the Work and Labor at It (v. 16)

Today’s Challenge: Who are those who are working hard for the Lord? Pray that God would give them — and yourself — open doors for effective work. Let those workers know of your respect for them and the work they do. And look for ways you can encourage and cooperate with their labor!

    I enjoy these gleanings from your study with Frank. Poignant and a nice way to start the day.
