Sermons on 1 Corinthians

Christian Privileges 1 Corinthians 1.1-9
2 Oct 2011
Teaching sermon by Dr Peter Masters
Beginning a series in this remarkable epistle, full of doctrinal, devotional and practical issues. True faults of this church are often exaggerated, distorting the message. Paul's strong commendations show the majority were marvellously converted and walking with the Lord. Here are incomparable Christian blessings.
The Wisdom and Power of God 1 Corinthians 1.10-25
9 Oct 2011
Teaching sermon by Dr Peter Masters
Corinth was a far better church than many think, but their cultural love of heroes and oratory needed to go (like some of our fads). Paul magnificently elevates the Gospel above all human wisdom. Though foolish to millions, God's call opens minds with converting power.

Teaching sermon by Dr Peter Masters
How God humbles the wise, mighty and noble both now and at the last day through the witness of ordinary believers holding forth the Cross alone. Also, how Christ is our wisdom, righteousness, sanctification and redemption, and how He should be constantly praised by us.

5 Dec 2010
Gospel sermon by Dr Peter Masters

The Deep Things of God 1 Corinthians 2.1
23 Oct 2011
Teaching sermon by Dr Peter Masters
The apostle reproves the Corinthians' taste for over-eloquent preaching decorated in philosophy, showing that Cross-centred persuasions, seemingly inadequate, are the wisdom and the power of God. Would he not condemn today's Christian drama, film, or rock-music centred outreach?

Gospel sermon by Dr Peter Masters

Why, when there is so much in the world to admire and aspire to, should we follow the Bible and place our hopes on Jesus Christ impaled on a Roman cross? Here are tremendous reasons which have led millions to Christ and to Heaven.

30 Oct 2011
Teaching sermon by Dr Peter Masters
Why human wisdom cannot read God's mind. God must reveal His truth to man. Here is how we may be certain that the Bible, exclusively, is that very revelation. Here also are features of the freeness of salvation, verbal inspiration and the chief rule of interpretation.
Becoming Spiritually Alive 1 Corinthians 2.14
