Philippians 2:9-11King James Version

Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Unity in Adversity
1 Samuel 22:1–23:29; 1 Peter 1:13–19; Psalm 123:1–124:8

Distress can unite people. In difficult moments, in shared pain, we discover our true friends. When David fled from King Saul, his divided family was suddenly supportive of him, as was every man in the region who was distressed or indebted (1 Sam 22:1–2; compare 1 Sam 17:28–30). A shared sense of despair reveals the humanity in us all, helping us to get past our disputes and work together for one purpose.

For a disjointed band of brothers to be united beyond initial circumstance, they must have one purpose. That’s precisely what David gave his motley crew: They would fight the Philistines (Israel’s greatest enemies) together (1 Sam 23:1–5). David took a terrible situation and turned it into an opportunity to do what needed to be done. As rightful king, David was obligated to protect Israel. Yet it still took outstanding courage and raw leadership to act upon that obligation. When most people would have …

International Sunday School Lesson

Lesson July 13, 2014
Exercise Freedom with Caution 1 Corinthians 8, 9
This treatment of the International Sunday School Lesson is written by Sam E. Stone, former editor of CHRISTIAN STANDARD. ______ By Sam E. Stone Paul’s first letter to the church in Corinth was prompted by a letter from them. They evidently asked Paul’s advice on several issues. Last week we considered one such topic, sexual laxity (chapter 6). Today’s text focuses on another question: Is it permissible for Christians to eat meat that has been sacrificed to an idol? First-century Corinth was known for its worship of pagan deities. Their worship included immorality. When a pagan offered a sacrifice in the temple, not all of the meat was burned on the altar. The leftover meat could be eaten by a priest, sold in the neighborhood butcher shop, or served at a feast given by an idol worshiper. Should Christians eat any of that meat?
The Principle1 Corinthians 8:1-3
Moving to a new subject, Paul wrote, Now about food sacrificed to …

July 13 Lesson 7
EXERCISE FREEDOM WITH CAUTION
DEVOTIONAL READING: Romans 14:7–12 BACKGROUND SCRIPTURE: 1 Corinthians 8, 9

1 CORINTHIANS 8
1 Now as touching things offered unto idols, we know that we all have knowledge. Knowledge puffeth up, but charity edifieth. 2 And if any man think that he knoweth any thing, he knoweth nothing yet as he ought to know. 3 But if any man love God, the same is known of him. 4 As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one. 5 For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,) 6 But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him. 7 Howbeit there is not in every man that knowledge: for some with conscience of the idol unto this hour eat it as a thing offered unto an idol; and th…
