Sunday, April 18, 2021. 1 Corinthians 1:1-3 | “Called To Be Saints.” When we introduce ourselves to others, how long does it take to mention Jesus? In the introduction to the letter known as 1 Corinthians, Paul gets right to the point and says more about God than he says about himself. 1 Corinthians is a letter written to a specific audience - “the church of God” and great detail is given in these opening verses to explain just who that Church is. This letter was written not only to the saints in first century Corinth, but also to us, “who in every place call upon the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
