Scripture: 1 Corinthians 1:26-28
Discussion: In the opening verse of this section, Paul writes, “For consider your calling, brothers.” He then proceeds to write about how many of them had humble beginnings with the implication that the message of the gospel makes all Christians less respected by a lost and dying world. How might God use our lowliness for His glory? How might the gospel being despised by the world serve to bring glory to God and be used to save sinners?

Scripture: 1 Corinthians 1:30-31
