Do you think it is amazing? For all the problems of the Corinthian church, despite their embarassing public behavior, Paul never once questions that they are saved people. He thanks God for them (1 Corinthians 1:4) He calls them brothers (vs 10). What he does do is confront their childish conflict as proof that they have much to learn. They have life. Now, they have to learn to live it. Consider verse 9 as the first lesson. They (we) have been called into fellowship with Christ. The English is inadequate here. Koinoinia is more than fellowship. It is partnership. It is shared life and common goals. Not a partnership of equals, it is a Kingdom! No longer my goals–His. No longer my pride–His glory. Conflict and bickering, whether in the church or the family is an indication that we have not surrendered to Him and therefore cannot surrender to each other. Even for those who have life, there is still much to learn.
