Homilies about 1 Corinthians

From Corinth to America  Click here Click title to view sermon 1 Corinthians 1: 10–17
Summary: In one of his final prayers for us, Jesus prayed that his followers might be at one with each other. Unfortunately, Christian communities can often reflect the very antithesis of such a vision by the divisions that they maintain, sometimes even in the name of the very God who calls us to oneness. If we would learn more thoroughly about and come to believe more deeply in the love that God has for each of us, such divisions would begin to shrink.

Unopened Gifts  Click here Click title to view sermon 1 Corinthians 1: 3–9
Summary:  As we begin the season that our culture thinks of as gift-giving time, let's not neglect the gifts God has brought us in Jesus the Christ. We don't want to leave these gifts unopened.

The Source of Our Lives  Click here Click title to view sermon 1 Corinthians 1: 26–31
Summary: It is only as we live “in Christ” that we overcome disunity and quarrelsomeness with others. Focusing upon God will prevent us from being self-righteous, petty and small-minded.

Grace in Loss; Peace in Pain  Click here Click title to view sermon 1 Corinthians 1: 3–9
Summary:  The First Sunday of Advent is a day for taking stock of the pain of the world, for recognizing that the world is still far from the reign of God. On this day, we begin again our long vigil for the return of Christ. But in the midst of this wait, the apostle Paul offers words of grace and peace that place our suffering within the context of God.

God’s House: A Community that Cares  Click here Click title to view sermon 1 Corinthians 3: 9–17
Summary: The church can be understood in many ways, but our post-Vatican II era asks that we see the church as the People of God. We are not individuals, but must work together to build God’s kingdom in our world. We are called to transform attitudes and perform work that demonstrate that we are a true community that cares. We do so in imitation of Jesus, who provided the model for our church and our lives.

Body and Spirit: There’s No Separating Them  Click here Click title to view sermon 1 Corinthians 6: 12–20
1 Corinthians 6: 13–20 for LFM
Summary: Paul’s lecture to the Corinthian church on food and fornication has ultimately to do with the relationship between body and spirit. It confronts a false understanding of spirit/body separation, and the argument that “as long as I’m not hurting anybody else, what I do with my body is only my business!” As such, it applies today as much as it did 2,000 years ago.

Do This, Not That!  Click here Click title to view sermon 1 Corinthians 11: 23–26
Summary: Celebration of Holy Communion is a vital part of Christianity — and thus a vital part of every Christian’s faith walk. From the lips of Jesus to the writings of Paul to modern-day practices, Christians are given the mandate to “do this and remember ....” The command implies that as we “do this,” there are other things we should not do.

Celebrating What Is Most Important in Life  Click here Click title to view sermon 1 Corinthians 11: 23–26
Summary: What is truly important in life? Many fine and varied answers could be proffered, but in the end, it is our Christian faith that is most important. Today the Christian community begins to celebrate its tradition in the Eucharist and in the challenge we have to be the Eucharist, the presence of Christ, to one another.

Feeding Others as Jesus Feeds Us  Click here Click title to view sermon 1 Corinthians 11: 23–26
Summary: The celebration of the ancient feast of Corpus Christi reminds us of the greatness of our Christian tradition. Jesus fed those he encountered with the Bread of Life, but he also provided the word and the Spirit to lead and assist us on the path to eternal life. As Jesus feeds us so we are called as God’s holy people to feed others through the donation of our time, talent and treasure to meet the many and varied needs of our sisters and brothers in Christ.

The Means to Remember  Click here Click title to view sermon 1 Corinthians 11: 23–26
Summary: Because we humans forget so easily, and because remembering is so important to our faith, God has given us three means of remembering, all associated with Communion.

Taking Maundy Thursday Seriously  Click here Click title to view sermon 1 Corinthians 11: 23–26
Summary: We are likely to come to the Maundy Thursday service not thinking of what the name of the occasion means -- and thus, not beginning to fulfill its potential in our own lives, and in our congregations.

Until He Comes  Click here Click title to view sermon 1 Corinthians 11: 23–26
Summary:  Paul told the Corinthian Christians, “As often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes.” That is responsibility and our blessing.

Remembering Jesus  Click here Click title to view sermon 1 Corinthians 11: 23–26
Summary: Remembering Jesus is more than just thinking about him. Literally, to remember something is to make it come alive. It’s the opposite of dismembering, the separating of the members one from another. Remembering puts them back together. Our remembering of Jesus should be reflected in our daily lives.

With Strings Attached  Click here Click title to view sermon 1 Corinthians 12: 3b–13
Summary:  God’s gifts always and forever have strings attached. Yet, they’re not the sort of strings that can be used to yank the gift back again. Rather, they connect us to one another, in community — and to God.

Are You a Team Player?  Click here Click title to view sermon 1 Corinthians 12: 12–30
Summary: Paul described the church as the body of Christ and individual Christians as different parts of that body. A football team with players at different positions can illustrate the same truth. Because they are members of one team, they can each be as good as possible at their individual tasks. The concept of “team spirit,” which holds individuals together in a single entity, can also help us to understand the role of the Holy Spirit in the church.

After Weeping … Comes Laughter  Click here Click title to view sermon 1 Corinthians 15: 17–26
Summary: Jesus told us that “Blessed are you who weep now, for you will laugh.” For Christians, that is a great truth. We, like most, will indeed have times of sorrow and hurt. But because we believe in a God who wills the best for each of us, we can look beyond our tears to our times of happiness. God grants us joy in the midst of our pain. We know, without question, that we can never be separated from the love of God. So be of good cheer. We are winners after all.

More Than a Fish Story  Click here Click title to view sermon 1 Corinthians 15: 1–11
Summary: It is possible to focus on what appears to be the main event of a gospel story and miss the subtle but important message around the event. This is true as we read about the large number of fish the disciples caught with Jesus in their boat. There is so much more to this story. Trying the story on for ourselves by role playing the various people in the crowd and even Simon in his boat may help to bring some of these messages to the surface.

Last and the Least  Click here Click title to view sermon 1 Corinthians 15: 1–11
Summary: Paul was compelled to pass on an important message: that Jesus died for our sins, was buried and on the third day was raised from the dead. Like a game of “hot potato,” that message is passed on to us who in turn must pass it on to others. In the same way that Paul could take ownership of being an Apostle with a capital “A” by the grace of God, we are apostles with the same mission.
