Hello Corinthians

Today's reading: 1 Corinthians 1:1-3

As we head into the first full week of this brand new year, we're also starting a journey through the letter of 1 Corinthians. Our reading for today, the first three verses of 1 Corinthians, is Paul's greeting to the Christ-followers in the city of Corinth. However, being quite the communicator, Paul often uses standard parts of his letters--greetings and closes--to guide, inform and instruct.

What message(s) or instruction do you see in these first three verses of 1 Corinthians? Tami

I love the wonderful sense of community he presents here: Christians over all location and time!

Message is that everyone sanctify in Jesus
Christ is called to be saint

Jesus is both our Lord and theirs and what really stood out to me was the word "called". Happy New Year!

The same God who calls us to holiness empowers us to be holy.

We are called by the will of God.
We are sanctified in Christ Jesus, with all others who call upon the name of our Lord.
Grace and Peace is from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

this letter is for ALL the people of the church and All believers in general.reminds them/us are chosen and called to be holy.gift of grace and peace from God the father through Christ.Got my interest!

"brother,church,sanctified,saints, and called "

All describe believers.

I like the words that Paul uses peace and grace which describes some of the attributes of our Lord Jesus Christ. Paul mention Lord Jesus Christ several times in these three verses.

By the way, I enjoy the comments from other readers very much!!
