Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

We’ll continue in 1 Corinthians 7 this morning with the theme which is found in verse 17: “Only let each person lead the life that the Lord has assigned to him.  This is my rule in all the churches.”  These are the rules instituted by Paul in the context of the chaotic culture of Corinth.  His rule is church law in all churches, including The Rivers Edge.  Everyone’s trying to improve their happiness, but Paul says in v. 20 to stay put: “Each one should remain in the condition in which he was called”.  Many of us know what we want , few of us know what we need.  Do you need God’s will or are you satisfied with your own?  The apostle exhorts us to quit chasing a better situation and to trust God where we are.  By God’s grace we will learn to “stay put” for His glory!
