10 Tweets on “Why Are You Here?” (1 Corinthians 14)

Here's the sermon in 10 Tweets in our "Letter to the Church in Corinth" series.

1/ Sometime it pays to ask the question, "Why are you here?"

2/ According to Paul, when we gather, "We are here to build each other up."

3/ The Corinthians' answer to the question was flawed. They've made worship about themselves and God alone.

4/ Speaking in tongues is unintelligible speech that expresses a state of mind or a heart-felt emotion. 

5/ There is a difference between biblical teaching that is descriptive and that which is prescriptive.

6/  It's hard to pin down exact definitions of the 3 forms of intelligible speech in v. 6: revelation, knowledge, prophecy, teaching. 

7/ Prophecy is an intelligible, God-inspired message that builds up, encourages, or consoles.

8/ Take time connect. What message do you send when you avoid connecting with the people of your church body?

9/ Worship with others in mind. 

10/ Find ways to serve.
