LESSON 10 - HOW TO LET GOD USE YOU

LESSON TEN

 
How to let God use you!

 

The preacher Paul wrote two letters to the church in the city of Corinth (in Greece). In both letters, Paul appealed to them to be completely united: to work together with only one thought and purpose.

Why did Paul tell the Good News without using the language of man's wisdom? [See 1 Corinthians 1:17.]

1 Corinthians 1:18 tells us: "For the message of Christ's death on the cross is:

______________________   to those who are being lost; but for us who are being saved,
[Write in your answer above]

 it is: _______________________________________ .
                             [Write in your answer above]

Read 1 Corinthians 1:18-28. Notice that:

1. The "message" is foolish [verse 18].

2. The "method" is foolish [verse 21].

3. We (the "messengers") are foolish [verses 26-28].



NOTICE:

IF YOU WANT TO BE USED BY GOD IN A MIGHTY WAY,

YOU HAVE TO BE WILLING TO BE "FOOLISH" IN THE EYES OF THE WORLD!


Who then can boast in God's presence? [See 1 Co. 1:29.]

In 1 Corinthians 2:1-2, Paul said that he did not use long words and great learning when he came to preach God's secret truth. Why? [See verse 2.]

_________________________________________________________________

Read 1 Corinthians 2:6-9. Notice that there are three kinds of wisdom:

1. Worldly wisdom [verse 6].

2. Satanic wisdom, the powers that rule this world [verses 6, 8].

3. God's secret wisdom [verse 7].

Why cannot the man who does not have God's Spirit (the natural man) receive the gifts that come from God's Spirit? [See 1 Corinthians 2:14.]

What proves that some Christians are still children in the faith, or "men of this world?” [1 Corinthians 3:3.]

_________________________________________________________________

What is God's temple? [1 Corinthians 3:16.]

In 1 Corinthians 5:9-13, the Holy Bible says you should not associate with immoral people. This does not mean unbelievers - to avoid them you would have to get out of the world completely! What does it mean? [See verse 11.]

_________________________________________________________________

_________________________________________________________________

Your body is a part of the body of Christ. Read 1 Corinthians 6:15-20. This is why the Holy Bible warns us to avoid immorality. Every other sin a man commits is without the body; but the man who commits fornication sins against (answer)?

_________________________________________________________________

Why should we use our bodies for God's glory? [Vs. 19 & 20.]

Read the command given to married people in 1 Corinthians 7:10-11. A married woman must not leave her husband. What must she do, if she does?

_________________________________________________________________

What is one way in which we should be careful towards our brothers (and sisters) in the faith? [1 Corinthians 8:9.]

_________________________________________________________________

How should those that preach the Good News get their living? [1 Corinthians 9:1-14.] [See also: Galatians 6:6; Matthew 10:10; 1 Timothy 5:17-18.]

Every temptation that has come your way is the kind that normally comes to people. What will God give you at the time you are tempted? [1 Corinthians 10:13.]

_________________________________________________________________

What is God's chain of command? That is, who is supreme (the head) and then next in command, and so on? [1 Co. 11:3.]

Chapters 12, 13, and 14 of 1 Corinthians deal with the gifts of the Holy Spirit, their operation, and worship in the church. It would be well for you to read these chapters through several times until you are familiar with them. List the nine gifts of the Spirit which are mentioned in 1 Corinthians 12:7-11 on a separate page*. Keep this extra page in a file with your Bible studies (either file it in a hard-copy [paper] file or in one of your computer files).

*CAUTION!

Do NOT omit this part of the lesson. You will need this information to help you be super-productive for God! And, to access THE BEST God has for you so you can help others!

The Holy Bible says to set your heart on the more important gifts. Best of all, however, is the way of LOVE. Read Chapter 13. Strive for LOVE, and desire spiritual gifts.

Set your heart especially on the gift of [1 Corinthians 13:1] ______________________

Do NOT forbid the [1 Corinthians 14:39] _____________________________________

What is of the greatest importance? [1 Co. 15:3-4.]

_________________________________________________________________

Why should you always keep busy in your work for the Lord? [1 Co. 15:58.]

_________________________________________________________________

_________________________________________________________________

How should we do all our work? [1 Corinthians 16:14.]

_________________________________________________________________

Do NOT try to work together as "equals" with those who are unbelievers, for it cannot be done. Why? [Read 2 Corinthians 6:14-18.]
