Pastor's Blog - No Perfect People Allowed

No Perfect People Allowed

Posted by Pastor Pete Panitzke on

Paul's letters to the congregation in Corinth reminds me of a book our Ministerial Team read together: No Perfect People Allowed. The congregation in Corinth was growing, dynamic, spiritually blessed. But it was far from perfect. In the first letter we heard about divisions in the congregation and many other problems. In 2 Corinthians, Paul must defend his ministry as apostle against detractors in the congregation. Attached is a map of Paul's third missionary journey and how 2 Corinthians fits into that history. Read 2 Corinthians 1 here.

As you read our Old Testament lesson (find Proverbs 10-12 here)highlight a verse or two from each chapter that you find especially meaningful. When we take these proverbs to heart, we will certainly confess that we are far from perfect. When you are done reading, pause to give thanks to the Savior whose death has paid for all our sins. It is through forgiveness that God sees us imperfect people as perfect in his sight.

God bless your reading today.

Pastor Pete
