One’s Actions Reveal Their Beliefs (Even More Than Their Words)

November 15, 2020 – Pastor Daniel Russell

2 Proofs and a Persuasion that One’s Actions Reveal their Belief

  1. People are saved because of death, rather than death being a hindrance to salvation
  2. People continue to serve God even if it puts their life in danger
  3. The Corinthians needed to get rid of their false belief, which was hindering their church, that there’s no resurrection

Things to consider:
Do your actions line up with your beliefs?
Do you attempt to correct your own theology?

Love is an Action, Part 2

August 23, 2020 Pastor Daniel Russell

This is part 2 of our series in 1 Corinthians 13:4-7. As we dig deep into this passage, we’re not only learning what a Biblical definition of love is, but also in what ways our cultural view of love is wrong. I pray you allow this passage to confront your beliefs and even to cut deeply as your own worldview is shown to be in conflict with God’s Word.

An outline for this passage could be:

  • Love does not Brag
  • Love does not inflate one’s own importance

Love is Not Selfish

1 Corinthians 13 is the 2nd chapter in a section in 1 Corinthians on Spiritual Gifts and their use. Though it’s commonly used in wedding ceremonies to describe romantic love, it would be better used in weddings to describe the type of love needed for a successful marriage that requires a choice to put the other’s needs first.

A possible outline for this section is:

6 “deluxe edition” gifts Paul shows would be useless if they aren’t exercised with Biblical love:

  1. Languages
  2. Preaching
  3. Knowledge
  4. Faith
  5. Charity
  6. Martyrdom
