We can all lose sight of what matters most. The church is no different. Jesus stated very clearly the mission of the church without weighing it down with many details. The Bible is largely silent on the form, style, and philosophy of ministry we should take, but is extremely vivid in what we are to be about. So we establish our plans to carry this out; however, over time someone’s good idea becomes a “sacred cow." When that happens, the form often becomes more important than the focus. The Corinthian Christians had already started down that path when Paul writes this very straightforward letter to bring their attention back to where it belongs. In doing this, he provides some of the richest theology in the entire New Testament. Over the next several weeks, we’re going to go “cow tipping” together. We’ll be tipping some of the sacred cows that can so easily take us off course and distract us from the mission Jesus so passionately commissioned us to carry out.
