The Saviour Is More Important Than The Preacher (1 Corinthians 2:6-3:23).

Notes & Transcripts

We come to know God when ‘the Spirit’ leads us to 'Jesus Christ' (2:10-13; 3:11; John 16:14).

We must not attach too much importance to the preachers - ‘What then is Apollos? What is Paul? Servants ...’. When we make too much of the servant, we draw attention away from the Saviour.

There is a very important lesson here - ‘Neither he who plants nor he who waters is anything, but only God who gives the growth’ (3:5-7).

We are not members of a ‘mutual appreciation society’ - ‘You pat my back, and I’ll pat yours’!

We must learn to point to Jesus, saying, ‘He must increase, but I must decrease’ (John 3:30).

Let ‘Jesus take the highest honour’. Let His Name be ‘the Name high over all’. ‘’Tis all my business... to cry Behold the Lamb!’ (Mission Praise, 378,385) - Let’s say it and mean it!
