Living for God in an Ungodly Culture
The Corinthian church was in trouble. The morally corrupt society in which those 1st century Christians were living had taken its toll on their values and thinking. We Christians of the 21st century can identify with them: the surrounding culture infiltrates our minds and weakens our commitment and testimony for Christ. Praise God that the apostle Paul’s Spirit-inspired solutions recorded in Scripture span the centuries!
This study of 1 Corinthians takes a thematic and practical approach to the book, recognizing that God’s Word is ever relevant and up-to-date as a guide to the Christian’s daily life. Each of the thirteen lessons suggests a practical action or attitude through which we may better live for God in the ungodly culture of our day.
