Sermon Text: 1 Corinthians 2:1-5
I. It doesn't steal the show.
II. It seeks to solve what really matters.
As for me, brothers, when I came to you, I did not come with superior speech or wisdom in order to proclaim to you the testimony of God. 2For I had no intention of knowing anything among you except Jesus Christ, and him crucified. 3I came to you in weakness, in fear, and with much trembling. 4My message and my preaching were not marked by persuasive words of human wisdom, but by a demonstration of the Spirit and of power, 5so that your faith would not rest on human wisdom, but on God’s power.

Sermon Text: 1 Corinthians 1:26-31
I. Think of what you were when you were "called."
II. Think of what you are because you are "called."
26For example, consider your call, brothers. Not many of you were wise from a human point of view, not many were powerful, and not many were born with high status. 27But God chose the foolish things of the world to put to shame those who are wise. God chose the weak things of the world to put to shame the things that are strong, 28and God chose the lowly things of the world and the despised things, and the things that are not, to do away with the things that are, 29so that no one may boast before God. 30But because of him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us the wisdom from God, namely, our righteousness and sanctification and redemption. 31God did this so that, just as it is written, “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.”

Sermon Text: 1 Corinthians 1:10-17
I. Achieved when people are not overrated.
II. Achieved when the Gospel is not underrated.
10Brothers, I am making an appeal to you using the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. I ask that you all express the same view and not have any divisions among you, but that you be joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment. 11For the news I heard about you, my brothers, from members of Chloe’s household, is that there are rivalries among you. 12What I mean is that each of you says, “I belong to Paul,” or “I belong to Apollos,” or “I belong to Cephas,” or “I belong to Christ.” 13Is Christ divided? Was Paul crucified for you? Or were you baptized into the name of Paul? 14I thank God that I did not baptize any of you except Crispus and Gaius, 15so that no one can say that I baptized you into my own name. 16(I also baptized the household of Stephanas. Besides them, I do not know whether I baptized anyone else.) 17For Christ did not send me to baptize but to preach the gospel-not with the wisdom used in speeches, so that the cross of Christ would not be emptied of its power.
