Title: Called to Be More Than Merely Human

Text:  1 Corinthians 3:1-9

1But I, brothers, could not address you as spiritual people, but as people of the flesh, as infants in Christ. I fed you with milk, not solid food, for you were not ready for it. And even now you are not yet ready, for you are still of the flesh. For while there is jealousy and strife among you, are you not of the flesh and behaving only in a human wayFor when one says, “I follow Paul,” and another, “I follow Apollos,” are you not being merely humanWhat then is Apollos? What is Paul? Servants through whom you believed, as the Lord assigned to each. I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the growth. So neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growthHe who plants and he who waters are one, and each will receive his wages according to his labor. For we are God’s fellow workers. You are God’s field, God’s building.

Sermon Notes:

  1. The Goal Is Not the Status Quo.
  2. It Is Really God, Who Does It.
  3. You and Me: Let Us Be, More than Merely Human.


 If there were no God, there would be no atheists.

– G.K. Chesterton

Those thinkers who cannot believe in any gods often assert that the love of humanity would be in itself sufficient for them; and so, perhaps, it would, if they had it.

– G.K. Chesterton
