I Corinthians 4:6-21
Hope you have your Bibles open already to I Corinthians. This morning
we'll study beginning with Chapter 4, looking at the sixth verse through
the twenty-first verse of Corinthians 4:6 to, through 21. As we bow for
prayer together. Father, tabernacle among us in this time of worship.
Continue to speak to us as You have through the ministry of music. Stir
those chords deep within that have been silent far to..to long. Deal
with us individually and collectively. Oh, Lord, you speak, let me get
out of the way, so that Thy Word and Thy holy and divine message might
rtat ort'iy tye r@aird, but may -it be received an-d understood a,-,,d 41ncorpo-
rated into our living. For we make this prayer in the strong, holy name
of Jesus Christ, our Savior and our Lord. Amen.
If you have ever been fishing in the ocean, not big time, deep sea

get a strike and you'll think, "Boy, you know, this is really some-
thing," and you'll reel it in and discover you've got one of those blow
fishes ... that, they're really small, but they blow themselves up and
they get to be a pretty good size, and with the current pushing back in
the opposite direction, you know, uh, they really can fool you.
A..a..and you take 'em off (you have to be careful because they'll get
you,. too),, y..y..you take 'em off and you just throw them to one side.
They're puffed up.
