1 Corinthians 2

B: Paul speaking to church in Corinth, church struggling with unity in Christ. Written from Ephesus. Around A.D. 55

O: Our testimony should not come from our wisdom but from God’s power which flows through us.

Truth: God can be revealed in our weakness and fear. They should not be obstacles in sharing our faith.

O: Those who understand God’s secret message: Christ, are mature. I am mature! I know God’s secret message.

O: The evidence of a true Christian is if he knows this “secret message” also.
