1 Corinthians 1:11For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them which are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.
Among The Many Hurts In Churches Today, DIVISIONS Are One Of The Most Common
DIVISIONS • To Separate Into Parts • To Prevent From Uniting • A Line Separating Two Areas
From Division Comes DIVORCE ‘A Legal Dissolution Or Separation’
There Are A LotOf ‘Divorces’ In Churches, And I’m Not Talking About The Marrying Kind!
I Mean Brothers And Sisters InChrist Who Have Separated Themselves From Each Other!
We Don’t Need Those We’reTrying To Reach To Be Confused By In-fighting, Bickering Or Political Maneuvering
But Rather… ‘By Our Radically Changed Lives – Thanks To Our Relationship With Jesus Christ!’
One Of The Biggest Hurts In Church Is Being On The Inside And Getting Pushed To The Outside…
Or… Being On The Outside And Trying To Get On The Inside. You Feel Like An Outcast and you start thinking “What’s Wrong With Me?”

1 Corinthians 1:1-91 Paul called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ through the will of God, and Sosthenes our brother, 2 Unto the church of God which is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that in every place call upon the name of Jesus Christ our Lord, both their's and our's:
1 Corinthians 1:1-93 Grace be unto you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. 4 I thank my God always on your behalf, for the grace of God which is given you by Jesus Christ; 5 That in every thing ye are enriched by him, in all utterance, and in all knowledge;
1 Corinthians 1:1-96 Even as the testimony of Christ was confirmed in you: 7 So that ye come behind in no gift; waiting for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ:
1 Corinthians 1:1-98 Who shall also confirm you unto the end, that ye may be blameless in the day of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord.
Remember, It’s All About Jesus Christ It’s His Grace It’s His Word He Accomplished Our Salvation He Is Faithful He Called Us Into ThisUnion With Him
Speak TheSame Thing 1 Corinthians 1:10-1210 Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
Speak TheSame Thing 1 Corinthians 1:10-1211 For it hath been declared unto me of you, my brethren, by them which are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you.
Speak TheSame Thing 1 Corinthians 1:10-1212 Now this I say, that every one of you saith, I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas; and I of Christ.
Speak TheSame Thing That There Be No Divisions That You May Have Fellowship That You Have UnityOf Mind And Spirit So Jesus Isn’t BrokenUp Into Fragments
