June 04 2023 – Full Service

This may be one of the most difficult and controversial passages in all of the bible. There is a lot of debate and a lot of disagreement over what Paul is saying here and even more so about how relevant what Paul is saying to the Corinthians is to us in Canada in 2023. I think at least a few things are clear from this passage:

#1) As both image bearers of God and followers of Jesus our actions can bring either shame or honour to our saviour and our God.

#2) While both men and women are image-bearers we bear that image in distinct ways. Contrary to our culture there are distinctions between the sexes. Contrary to Roman/Greek culture there is no distinction in our value.

#3) We need to figure out what it looks like in Canada in 2023 to bring honour to God as his image-bearers, both male and female, through the way we worship.


Sermon Notes:

  • Everything about the Christian life should point to Jesus being the king of your life. (vs. 3)
  • “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them.” Genesis 1:27
  • Gender is part of God’s created design. It is not a social construct. (vs. 6-9)
  • One way you honour Jesus as king is by living out what it means to be a male or female made in His image.
  • In a community where Jesus is king, humility and unity should define how we relate and function as God’s image bearers. (vs. 11-16)
