January 21st, 2018 CONSUMERISM
Weeding out the Consumerism Culture in Us: Just like the church in Corinth, we consume the latest information, consume possessions and things, strive for status, and even bring a consumer mindset into our Christian lives. Our culture promulgates information into our hearts and minds, leading us towards fleeting promises and unfulfilling paths. Paul emphasizes the we have a new life in Christ Jesus. One that is centered in Christ and finds its value therein. Not in our status, not in our belongings, not in our achievements, but in Christ, our center.
