September 4, 2022
The “Big C” church is much bigger than any of us realize.
In this sermon from 1 Corinthians 16 we learn about Paul’s heart for effective ministry among all the churches.
If you ever thought “your church” is more important than other people’s churches, this sermon will help you get a bigger, more global, picture of Kingdom.
Kingdom Culture is all about WE being greater than ME.

Resurrection means more to a Christian than we can possibly put in to words. In fact, the Resurrection is the foundation for everything the Christian believes.
But what if Jesus never did raise from the dead?
Paul says it a little different. We are wasting our time if, in fact, the resurrection never happened!
That’s strong language.
But He did raise from the dead. And there’s plenty of evidence for the empty tomb.
So what does it all mean? What does it resurrection mean for the believer?
This sermon dives in to the reality of the empty tomb, as well as what resurrection looks like for believers.

Topic: Love , Spiritual Gifts
Ah yes. Love is in the air.
1 Corinthians 13 is the famous “love” passage. In fact, it’s used more in weddings than any other passage in the Bible. One problem, this passage is not about the love between a husband and a wife.
In this sermon, Mike unpacks what 1 Corinthians 13 is all about. Loving other Christians can be difficult. Especially when it comes to using our Spiritual Gifts in the Kingdom.
The Apostle Paul is clear – Love others AND use your Spiritual Gifts. This sermon is a nuts and bolts picture on what that looks like and how that’s done.

Speaker: Dylan Austin
Many churches (including LifeSpring) do it every week. But what is it?
The Apostle Paul tells the church of Corinth to take communion, “In a worthy manner.”
In this sermon, Dylan guides us through what that means.
hint: it has LESS to do with repentance and LESS to do with a somber, inward focus and MORE to do with the body of Christ.

Being a slave to all…
It’s something we are called to do as Christian, but who wants to do that?
As individuals, we seem to have a problem with motivation. Understanding what our motivation is to become a slave is super important to actually living it out.
This is a practical message on 1 Corinthians 9:24 – 1 Corinthians 10
This sermon is from guest preacher Derek Murphy, Director of the ICPA (Intermountain Church Planting Association)

Be all things to all people…
What did Paul mean when he said those words?
People feel the need to be “right”. What if being right is not the end goal?
What if we were willingly laid down our rights for the sake of the Gospel?
What may be ok in one setting may not be wise in another. Knowing WHEN and WHERE to do and say certain things may just be the difference between being an effective Kingdom Builder and not.
To the Christian, Gospel should matter more than any personal preferences or doctrinal nuances. Whatever it takes to share the Gospel and unite Christians in the name of Christ!

This sermon from 1 Cor. 7 has the power to change marriages.
It has the power to revive intimacy in marriages. It is definitely a reminder that our bodies belong to the Lord, then our spouse, then us.
It’s a powerful reminder that following Jesus should impact every area of our lives.
This sermon touches on using Scripture to justify actions. Simultaneously, we learn how our actions could impact intimacy.
Is Paul saying, “We must be intimate with our spouse even when we feel treated poorly?” Not so fast!
This sermon is full of rich wisdom, having the power to help change the trajectory of marriages and relationships.

Yikes, it’s not always easy!
This sermon from 1 Corinthians 6:1-12 reminds us on how we are supposed to get along. But the topic is difficult and nuanced.
Is Paul saying we are NEVER supposed to sue another Christian? Is he saying we are supposed to HIDE our sins from the world? And what does he mean when he says we are going to judge angels?
When we understand the purpose behind this passage, we can begin to see another beautiful reason behind why God gave us the Church, and how we are to be patently different from the world.
