First Corinthians- Living Love When We Disagree

6 Week Online Bible Study

Get Course Access Today!

Course Description
First Corinthians Bible Cafe™ Study!! 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.

Learn how to have open-ended discussions about modern topics and opportunities to cultivate unity- even when we disagree.

The Apostle Paul wrote his first letter to the Corinthians as a guide for handling disagreements in communities.In a time when society is so quick to judge others, Paul taught the Corinthians to stand above and live in love, even when it seemed impossible. Perhaps today we need to show love to those around us, even when we don’t have the same perspective. Everything is not all about ourselves, and Melissa Spoelstra’s study First Corinthians: Living Love When We Disagree gives practical advice on how to treat those around us in a loving, God-honoring way.

While we’re not always in disagreement with our fellow Christians, we may be divided in our families, neighborhoods, workplaces and communities. When we apply the Scriptures to our culture today, we’re presented with places for living love. When you participate in this study you’ll learn the Biblical methods for unity even when we disagree. 

Required Book (not included)

Spoelstra, Melissa. First Corinthians: Learning Love When We Disagree. Abingdon Press, 2016.

 

Bible Cafe™ First Corinthians Study Resources

First Corinthians: Living Love Even When We Disagree by Melissa Spoelstra available from Abingdon, ChristianBooks, Amazon or other favorite bookstores. If you live internationally, we recommend the Kindle book which you can read on a tablet device or your computer.

“Living Love When We Disagree” is so timely in today’s cultural climate! Our leaders perceived this study to be very relevant to our lives. We’ll explore how to stay in unity when we disagree on denomination topics such as speaking in tongues or the role of women in the church. Or topics such as political elections. Even topics such as shadow banning and hiding Christian content from social media and search engine sites. Often we avoid the discussion because we don’t know how to find the common ground of unity.

This study covers these Christian topics: Communication, Rebellion, Differences, Unity and Love.

Fitting Room Bible Study by Kelly Minter

When we let the Master Designer do the fitting, we learn to wear His virtues. Give yourself a character makeover and put on the virtues of His heart.

The Fitting Room: Putting on the Character of Christ

7 Week Online Bible Study

Get Course Access Today!

Online Bible study based on Biblical virtues. During this 7-week Bible Cafe study you will put on a new wardrobe: peace, kindness, forgiveness, humility, compassion, patience, and joy! When life challenges your virtues, learn to stand on solid ground.

There’s no daily homework. If you have time to read two chapters a week- this Bible study is just perfect for YOU.

Kelly Minter Bible Studies are rich with storytelling and application. She doesn’t spoon feed her readers. Kelly encourages us to dig deeper as she lays a foundation. In this study she delivers a strong message of forgiveness- something you don’t want to miss.

When you read books by Minter, you’ll feel like Kelly is sitting across the table from you. She’s well-known for her “Living Room” series which incorporates studying the Bible, practicing hospitality and cultivating friendships. At the Bible Cafe™ we carry a similar concept of togetherness. This book is lighter than other studies we’ve led, intentionally selected for your summer enjoyment.

We’ll have conversations around the character of the world and the virtues of Christ. You’ll agree- these are vastly different virtues!

Based on Colossians 3:12 we want to understand how to “clothe” ourselves in Christian virtues like forgiveness, joy, patience, compassion. For many this is a renewal of how we see ourselves in the reflection of Christ. Can we really “dress up” in His character?

Each week we’ll read two chapters from Kelly’s book and discuss these virtues. We’ll have additional content and Scripture verses to enhance your learning. You could curl up in a comfy chair with your iced coffee or sweet tea and enjoy the lessons here. It’s perfect for summer.

You don’t need a theology degree to understand this teaching material. It’s written for every woman, not seminary students. You might read a chapter a day, or two chapters a week, or the entire book on a weekend at the beach.

Kelly Minter says if we let the Master Designer do the fitting, we learn to wear His virtues. Kelly also shares simple, down-to-earth explanations of tricky concepts such as justification and sanctification—stitching it all together with humor and honesty. There are no gimmicks, no guilt trips.

As a result this is irresistible invitation for women to enjoy a spiritual makeover. Put on a life that’s personally tailored by the One who knows and loves you best.

For this Bible Cafe Study you will read and discuss two chapters each a week. These are easy and comfortable. Not complicated lessons. We want to help you to grow in faith and learn the character of Christ.
