Relationships are messy. We're all different and imperfect, and we can struggle to get along--especially with those who disagree with us. Often we find ourselves divided--even as Christians. How can we work out our differences and disagreements with humility and grace, always showing the love of Christ, while still remaining true to what we believe?
The Apostle Paul wrote to the Christians living in Corinth about this very thing. The cultural backdrop of Corinth was even more overtly sinful than our culture today, yet Paul boldly encouraged the Corinthian Christians not to ridicule one another or outsiders but to work together to show the love of Christ. In this six-week study we will explore Paul's first letter to the Corinthians to learn how we as Christians are to deal with differences and divisions--whether in the workplace, neighborhood, school, home, social media community, or church. We'll discover that the answer is living and sharing the radical love of Jesus Christ, and we'll unpack what this means and how we can live it out day by day.
The Participant Book includes five days of lessons for each week, combining study of Scripture with personal reflection, application, and prayer.
Other components for the Bible study, available separately, include a Leader Guide, DVD with six 25-30 minute sessions, and boxed Leader Kit (an all-inclusive box containing one copy of each of the Bible studys components).

Lynette5 Stars Out Of 5First CorinthiansApril 5, 2017LynetteQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I especially enjoyed the opportunity to dig deeper and learn about historical connotations. I also liked at the end of the week, reading the entire chapters at one sitting. The book helped to clearly think about loving someone verses approving of how they live their life and how approval/consent/love intertwine. I read the book more slowly than than the work given so I could do it all and digest but I like the options for people to read certain parts.
TB5 Stars Out Of 5First Corinthians-Living Love When We DisagreeMarch 30, 2017TBQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This study was a great study that reminded you that we need to show love to those around us, even when we don't have the same perspective. Reminding us that everything is not all about ourselves, she gives practical advise of how to treat those around us in a loving, God-honoring way. Thanks, Melissa, for your commitment to see believers grow in Christ and love each other better!
Kris5 Stars Out Of 5Perfect timing for this study.March 30, 2017KrisQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0Anyone who takes a few moments to scroll through any social media feed will see that our culture is very quick share our opinions, regardless if they are kind, helpful, or even have good intent. We live in a time when society is so quick to judge others. This book reminds us how Paul taught the Corinthians to stand above and live in love, even when it seemed impossible. I think every generation feels "these are possibly the hardest times ever" but Melissa shows us that even though time and life in Corinth are in the distant past, their challenges may not be as different as we thought from our own challenges today. We don't always have to agree with each other, but we can choose to live the love of Christ everyday.
