In 1 Corinthians 3.1-15 Paul encourages the Corinthians to mature in the faith, and then tells them what maturity looks like. Often as Christians we think we are mature in the Lord, but we can easily overlook some of the key aspects of maturity that the Bible speaks of. On Sunday we saw three characteristics of spiritual maturity in the local church:
- A Mature Church Fights Against Strife.
- A Mature Church Values Leader’s Diversity and Unity.
- A Mature Church Values Eternal Building Materials.
Below are the sermon notes from Sunday’s bulletin. This includes some discussion questions based on the text, and also includes our order of worship from Sunday in case you want to look back at some of the Scripture references and songs we used as we worshiped the Lord together.
I pray you all have a happy Thanksgiving!
