Daily Devotionals from Pastor Quintin Stieff

Syncretism

Today's Scripture 1 Corinthians 10:14-22 (NIV) Therefore, my dear friends, flee from idolatry.  15 I speak to sensible people; judge for yourselves what I say.  16 Is not the cup of thanksgiving for which we give thanks a participation in the blood of Christ? And is not the bread that we break a participation in the body of Christ?  17 Because there is one loaf, we, who are many, are one body, for we all share the one loaf. 18 Consider the people of Israel:...

The Dangers of Success

Today's Scripture 1 Corinthians 10:1-13 (NIV) For I do not want you to be ignorant of the fact, brothers and sisters, that our ancestors were all under the cloud and that they all passed through the sea.  2 They were all baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea.  3 They all ate the same spiritual food  4 and drank the same spiritual drink; for they drank from the spiritual rock that accompanied them, and that rock was Christ.  5 Nevertheless, God...

Love Builds Up

Today's Scripture 1 Corinthians 8 (NIV) Now about food sacrificed to idols: We know that “We all possess knowledge.” But knowledge puffs up while love builds up. 2 Those who think they know something do not yet know as they ought to know. 3 But whoever loves God is known by God. 4 So then, about eating food sacrificed to idols: We know that “An idol is nothing at all in the world” and that “There is no God but one.” 5 For even if there are so-called gods, whether in heaven or...

Unusual Counsel on Singleness

Today's Scripture 1 Corinthians 7:32-40 (NIV) I would like you to be free from concern. An unmarried man is concerned about the Lord’s affairs—how he can please the Lord. 33 But a married man is concerned about the affairs of this world—how he can please his wife— 34 and his interests are divided. An unmarried woman or virgin is concerned about the Lord’s affairs: Her aim is to be devoted to the Lord in both body and spirit. But a married woman is concerned about the affairs of... Read More
