Fitting into God’s Eternal Purpose

It begins with understanding that Christ is not ‘divided’… (I Cor. 1:13) The early followers of Jesus in Corinth fell into divisions because they began to look to men and not to God alone for ultimate leadership.

What do you rejoice over? What makes you dance, perhaps the birth a child or grandchild? Perhaps the winning touch down in a close game or a homerun that clinches a playoff game; or maybe a bonus from work or getting an overdue word of appreciation? Paul rejoiced over his suffering for the gospel and the realization of seeing the Gentiles being included of what we know as the Church (Col 1:24-27 ).
