1 Corinthians 8:1-13 – “Our Christian Liberties”

INTRO

Understand Knowledge and Love

Knowledge is important. Paul is constantly encouraging the church to grow in their knowledge and understanding of the things of God.  We cannot believe that which we do not know.

Love is a verb.  If we know God we will love God and love others.  We will stop looking so selfishly at our life and begin to look at others.

Col. 1:9 – exhorted to grow in knowledge (DOCTRINE)

1 John 4:19-21 – exhorted to love. (UNITY)
