Discussion for 1 Corinthians 10

    verse 31 whatever you do ...do to glorify God.....not so much what you do but how you do it and the attitude you do it in and the reason behind it
  • Brianna for VS. 23, 24
    There is probably a law out there somewhere to permit a almost anything. However, is it advantageous? So, maybe we technically have the "right" to do something, but the Bible helps us to see in vs. 24 what we should keep in mind. Is it advantageous, does it build up, does it look for the feelings of others?
  • Brianna for verse 11
    Some people question why certain things were put into the Bible. This verse gives one of the answers. Basically, accounts and people in the Bible were examples, some were warnings specifically for us, as we draw ever closer to the time of the end.

    No matter what I am tempted with to do and to say : I must STOP Think and make the choice that God has left me with in making a way to escape : I will say that from time to time I fail and allow my flesh to rule : I must learn to allow Holy Spirit to dictate to me instead of my flesh : It is hard to do but it can be done because God said it could through Him !!!! God is faithful to forgive me of my sin and to cleanse me when I confess to Him : Victory Ahead !!! I also Praise God for the choices I have made in some of those times of temptation that I choose to go with God !!! Sweet Peace and Blessing !!!
