Sermons on 1 Corinthians

Christian Privileges 1 Corinthians 1.1-9
2 Oct 2011
Teaching sermon by Dr Peter Masters
Beginning a series in this remarkable epistle, full of doctrinal, devotional and practical issues. True faults of this church are often exaggerated, distorting the message. Paul's strong commendations show the majority were marvellously converted and walking with the Lord. Here are incomparable Christian blessings.
The Wisdom and Power of God 1 Corinthians 1.10-25
9 Oct 2011
Teaching sermon by Dr Peter Masters
Corinth was a far better church than many think, but their cultural love of heroes and oratory needed to go (like some of our fads). Paul magnificently elevates the Gospel above all human wisdom. Though foolish to millions, God's call opens minds with converting power.

Gospel sermon by Dr Peter Masters

Here is what makes the message of Christ so foolish in the eyes of the world, and why, despite its simplicity, it is really the wisest, most profound, and most effective message for the deepest human needs, in its diagnosis, remedy and outcome.

Teaching sermon by Dr Peter Masters
How God humbles the wise, mighty and noble both now and at the last day through the witness of ordinary believers holding forth the Cross alone. Also, how Christ is our wisdom, righteousness, sanctification and redemption, and how He should be constantly praised by us.

True Greatness 1 Corinthians 1.29
6 Jan 2013
Gospel sermon by Dr Peter Masters
It is a humbling thought that no 'flesh' shall glory in the presence of God. When He is left out of life, no human ability or accomplishment is acceptable to Him. Here is why; and here is the way, through Christ, to acceptance and union with God.
Where is Mankind's Glory? 1 Corinthians 1.29
5 Dec 2010
Gospel sermon by Dr Peter Masters
Paul declares that no amount of human achievement gains standing for us with God, and in this passage he tells us why, and what God has done to enable individuals to have spiritual life now, and eternal glory.
The Deep Things of God 1 Corinthians 2.1
23 Oct 2011
Teaching sermon by Dr Peter Masters
The apostle reproves the Corinthians' taste for over-eloquent preaching decorated in philosophy, showing that Cross-centred persuasions, seemingly inadequate, are the wisdom and the power of God. Would he not condemn today's Christian drama, film, or rock-music centred outreach?
The Centrality of Christ 1 Corinthians 2.2
2 Apr 2021
Good Friday by Dr Peter Masters

Christ is the manifestation of God's nature and the only source of pardon and life for those who seek Him. All empires and philosophies pass away, but the crucifixion stands as the greatest ever act of kindness and atonement - the only way to God.
