Repentance, Allegiance & Deference for the Glory of God | 1 Corinthians 10

We are tempted to sin daily, and giving into that sin without repentance keeps us from the abundant life God has promised us (John 10:10). John Elmore walks through 1 Corinthians 10:1-33 to discuss how to live in repentance, allegiance, and deference for the glory of God and for our own good.

Summary

God has called us to live for His glory and others’ good, not for ourselves. This is the way we live the abundant life He has promised us. To do this, we must live in repentance, allegiance, and deference, as laid out in 1 Corinthians 10.

  1. Repentance – for the glory of God and your good (1 Corinthians 10:1-14)
    • Repentance means turning from sin by turning toward Christ.
    • Past grace does not exempt you from present consequences.
    • We have a daily choice: repent or relapse.
    • Repent by God’s strength or be doomed to repeat your past (1 Corinthians 10:6; 1 Corinthians 10:11).
  2. Allegiance – for the glory of God and your good (1 Corinthians 10:12-22)
    • Allegiance means fidelity, devotion, and loyalty by a subordinate to a sovereign.
    • Christ’s communion is a supernatural connection to Christ with the body of Christ (1 Corinthians 10:15-18).
    • Demonic communion is demonic connection through idol worship, which is worshipping anything other than God (1 Corinthians 10:19-20).
    • If we are worshipping something AND Jesus, it is compromised allegiance. He is Lord of all or not at all.
  3. Deference – for the glory of God and your neighbor’s good (1 Corinthians 10:23-33)
    • Deference means yielding to another regardless of your desires.
    • The hard thing is often the right thing – we must die to ourselves for the good of others (1 Corinthians 10:25-28).
    • We are not called to live for our good; we are called to live for God’s glory (Psalm 115:1).

Discussing and Applying the Sermon

  • Do you feel you are living the abundant life Christ promised? Why or why not?
  • Where has compromise crept into your life?
  • What is a sin struggle you need to repent of daily?
  • What are the idols you are worshipping instead of God?
  • What is a liberty you can surrender for the good of your neighbor?
  • What would walking in complete repentance, allegiance, and deference look like in your life?
