Rich in Christ | Week of January 7th

1 Corinthians 1:5-7, …that you were enriched in everything by Him [Christ Jesus] in all utterance and all knowledge, even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you, so that you come short in no gift, eagerly waiting for the revelation of our Lord Jesus Christ.

From the sermon series: New Year’s service

In the beginning of Paul’s letter to the Corinthians, he thanks God for the grace that the congregation has received. With this grace, they would have many spiritual gifts that would help them to live in ways that please God.

When we look at these verses, we see that the Corinthians were blessed in “all utterance and all knowledge.” Both of these gifts are useful when used together. If we talk with others, but have no knowledge of Christ, our conversations have no real meaning. And if we have knowledge, but do not know how to use it properly and share it in an edifying way, then what good is that knowledge? The gifts of utterance and knowledge, when used together, can be used to enrich the church and also people who have yet to come to faith in Christ. From Jesus’ example, we learn how to interact with others in a loving way. We also learn from Him, and the Scriptures, what truths God wants His people to know.

How might you prepare yourself for the conversations you will have this week so that you use both the gifts of utterance and knowledge?
