Wesley's Notes for 1 Corinthians 1:2


1:2 To the church of God which is in Corinth - St. Paul, writing in a familiar manner to the Corinthians, as also to the Thessalonians and Galatians, uses this plain appellation. To the other churches he uses a more solemn address. Sanctified through Jesus Christ - And so undoubtedly they were in general, notwithstanding some exceptions. Called - Of Jesus Christ, #Rom 1:6| And - As the fruit of that calling made holy. With all that in every place - Nothing could better suit that catholic love which St. Paul labours to promote in this epistle, than such a declaration of his good wishes for every true Christian upon earth. Call upon the name of our Lord Jesus Christ - This plainly implies that all Christians pray to Christ, as well as to the Father through him.


People's Bible Notes for 1 Corinthians 1:2


1Co 1:2 Unto the church of God. This designation of the church appears oftener than any other in the New Testament. To them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus. All of "the church of God at Corinth" were "sanctified in Christ Jesus"; that is, they were set apart from the world and consecrated to God. All Christians are "sanctified" in the sense of the term in the New Testament, and "called to be saints". The humblest Christian is a saint, as well as Peter or Paul. With all that in every place. The letter is intended for all Christians, as well as for those at Corinth. Call upon the name of Jesus Christ. Recognize him as their divine Savior. Both theirs and ours. The Lord of the saints everywhere as well as ours (1Co 8:6 Eph 4:5). Since there is only one Lord and Master, all Christians should be brethren.

    Eternal truths- For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God. That no flesh should glory in his presence. We must learn to give ALL the glory to God. He is ever worthy of our praise. No man on earth must give glory to himself.

    There are to be no divisions in the body Christ. In the house of Chloe there contentions. One is of Paul, one of Cephas, one Apollos, one of Christ. My brethren this should not be. Seems the divisions became worse as time marched on. Remains to be seen how this division will end.

    James 1:5 If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not and it shall be given him. Paul wrote 13 books of the Bible and is the 13 Apostles.

  • Ray321
    35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. Jesus Christ is the Word, therefore we must believe his Word. 6 The words of the Lord are pure words: as silver tried in a furnace of earth, purified seven times.the Word is Salvation. 23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever. The Word is Alive.
