I follow Apollos - 1Cor 3:6 : I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God made it grow. I follow Cephas -The Apostle Peter was at Corinth at this time Slide7

8 Paul reminds them that they are: "... the church of God in Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus and called holy, together with all those everywhere who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ--their Lord and ours" 1 Cor 1 v2 Slide8

9 Dare we read: "... the church of God in Ipswich, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus and called holy, …” Slide9

10 Paul addresses the issue He doesn't gossip about it (Not even "...just for prayer..."!) He doesn't ignore it, He doesn't say it doesn't matter He doesn't say nothing can be done, BUT, He Does Do what he can. He can't go to them, but can write to them, and he does. Slide10

11 "I appeal to you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree with one another so that there may be no divisions among you and that you may be perfectly united in mind and thought". V10 Slide11

12 "My brothers, some from Chloe's household have informed me that there are quarrels among you. What I mean is this: One of you says, "I follow Paul"; another, "I follow Apollos"; another, "I follow Cephas"; still another, "I follow Christ." (1 Cor 1 vv11-12) Slide12

24 , "... Forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors...." Mt 6 V12 NIV. " For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins. " Mt 6 V14-15 NIV Slide24

26 How many people did you spot in there, being a ‘Chloe’? (Each doing something small, but important.) One person suggested an intermediary. Someone else agreed to be that intermediary. And with the prayers of many Slide26

27 "I am thankful that I did not baptize any of you except Crispus and Gaius, so no one can say that you were baptized into my name. (Yes, I also baptized the household of Stephanas; beyond that, I don't remember if I baptized anyone else.)" - 1 Cor 1 vv Slide27

28 "For Christ did not send me to baptize, but to preach the gospel--not with words of human wisdom, lest the cross of Christ be emptied of its power". – 1 Cor 1 v17 1Cor 3:6 "I planted the seed, Apollos watered it, but God made it grow." Slide28

29 In Conclusion We have looked at: Who we are – "... the church of God in Ipswich,... sanctified in Christ Jesus and called holy, " What we should do – What we can, but we don't Gossip – Remember Chloe – Did what she could Slide29

30 In Conclusion Prayer is Listening to God as well as Talking to him – We need to be 'Right with God', and have His understanding We need to agree on the big issues – What we see, may be different from other people – We may need to work to reach Agreement Baptism is Important, but not as important as salvation Slide30
