In the scripture passages for today we see the early church is in disarray. There is division and tumult. But Paul urges the church in Corinth to keep their focal point on one place: on Jesus.
For the message about the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.”
We are still in the process of being saved, as a motley group of people bound up together. We are bearing the good news in the body of our lives.
