In her dynamic new devotional, Godly Freedom, Bible teacher and best-selling author Rebecca Livermore taps into the truths penned long ago by the apostle Paul to the church in Corinth. To put it bluntly, the Corinthians were a big hot mess. Among other things, they dealt with issues such as:
Lawsuits between believers
Many other types of division
Paul caught wind of the troubles, and wrote them a very straightforward letter - which we now know as the book of 1 Corinthians - to deal with the issues. When you consider what a mess the church in Corinth was, it's easy to stand in judgment of them - until you realize that they were people just like us. That's the bad news. The good news is that the principles laid out in the 24 devotionals in this book provide modern day applications to the truths laid out in 1 Corinthians. Applying these lessons will keep you from making the mistakes the Corinthians made. Each devotional includes a passage of scripture from 1 Corinthians, a story or illustration related to the scripture, a prayer, and suggestions for applying the truths. This book will take you on a journey - a journey to Corinth, but even more importantly, a journey to becoming a more mature believer in Jesus. It is for any Christian that desires a closer walk with God.
