Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 1:10


1:10 Now I exhort you - Ye have faith and hope; secure love also. By the endearing name of our Lord Jesus Christ - lnfinitely preferable to all the human names in which ye glory. That ye all speak the same thing - They now spoke different things, #1Co 1:12| And that there be no schisms among you - No alienation of affection from each other. Is this word ever taken in any other sense in scripture? But that ye be joined in the same mind - Affections, desires. And judgment - Touching all the grand truths of the gospel.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 1:10


1Co 1:10 Now I beseech you, brethren. How earnest and imploring is the Apostle's exhortation that they should maintain unity! That ye all speak the same thing. Have no distinctive party declarations. This is violated in the modern sectarian symbols and confessions. [That] there be no divisions among you. "No schisms", in the Greek. If there were none, and all "were perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment", all would "speak the same thing". There would be no variance in their declarations. It is evident, from what follows, that, while the Corinthians had not separated into various church organizations, they had formed several parties within the church (1Co 1:12). Organized sects, claiming to be "branches of the church", were unknown till centuries later.

Discussion for 1 Corinthians 1

  • A disciple
    THAT NO FLESH SHOULD GLORY IN HIS PRESENCE (cont. lastly); What the Apostle is talking about is the evidence of God's grace through His Son will produce an utter transformation of character away from the old satanic nature. Therefore to accuse the broken-hearted, humble and obedient who trembles at the Word of God that he is secretly seeking to usurp God's glory, is out of an evil mind of hatred.
  • A disciple
    THAT NO FLESH SHOULD GLORY IN HIS PRESENCE (cont. 2) When you say that we must repent and sin no more; they say, Judge Not! When you say that Christ expects to come to us and find good fruit, and that otherwise why do we worthlessly take up space? They reply, No Flesh Shall Gory In HIS PRESENCE! But go back to the beginning: how are we supposed to be known as Man? Because we ARE MADE IN HIS IMAGE!
  • A disciple
    THAT NO FLESH SHOULD GLORY IN HIS PRESENCE (cont.) Everyone who really knows what it means to be forgiven its sins and has learned the bitter lessons of its own ruined nature, and how impossibly UNFIT for God's Presence we all are; and how great and beautiful and loving is the Saviour; has no problem understanding the necessity of obedience and bearing good fruit that it is why we are being saved.
  • A disciple
    "..THAT NO FLESH SHOULD GLORY IN HIS PRESENCE" I find it so revolting, how whenever you start talking about bearing good fruit and obedience, someone will spout off as if the fruitful and obedient are seeking their own glory! Small people with little understanding think they have to run to God's defense; but what they really do is persecute the ones whom He has taken great pains to seek and save!
  • Steve morrow
    1 CORINTHIANS 1:29 THAT NO FLESH SHOULD GLORY IN HIS PRESENCE --1:30-- but of HIM are you in CHRIST JESUS who of GOD is made unto us wisdom and righteousness --and sanctification -- and redemption --1:31-- that according as it is written --- HE THAT GLORIETH LET HIM GLORY IN THE LORD
  • Steve morrow
    a disciple 1 CORINTHIANS 1:10 I beseech you brethren by the name of our LORD JESUS CHRIST that --you all speak-- the same thing and that there be no divisions among you but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgement JOHN 6:63 it is the spirit that quickeneth the flesh profiteth nothing --- THE WORDS THAT I SPEAK --- UNTO YOU THEY ARE SPIRIT AND THEY ARE LIFE
