1 Corinthians 1:4-9

Big Idea: We should give thanks for God’s grace demonstrated in our brothers and sisters in Christ. (v. 4)

Two elements of God’s grace in others that we should be thankful for:

  1. Their rich spiritual life (v. 5-7)
    • Speech and knowledge
    • Spiritual gifts
  2. Their security (v. 8-9)


Additional Notes:

Epistolary Thanksgiving: (Romans 1:8; Ephesians 1:16; Philippians 1:3; Colossians 1:3; 1 Thessalonians 1:2; 2 Thessalonians 1:3; 1 Timothy 2:1(?); 2 Timothy 1:3

Signs the honeymoon phase of a relationship is coming to an end:

    • Find your gift
    • Develop your gift
    • Implement your gift
