Read: 1 Corinthians 10:13

The Apostle Paul was like a teacher, coach, and doctor to the early Christian churches. He would educate them, inspire them, and prescribe truth to treat any spiritual sickness in the body. When he couldn’t visit, he would write a letter. 1 Corinthians is one of the letters Paul wrote to the church in Corinth. Due to its location and large population, Corinth was a melting pot for culture. Corinth became known as a place to go for sex. They even got their own Greek word—korinthiazomai translated as Corinthianize—which means to practice sex.

Doesn’t Corinth remind you of today’s temptation-filled society? As you read 1 Corinthians 10:13, listen as a student who’s learning how to apply a new idea? Perhaps you’re in need of a coach to inspire you to press through and win a battle. Or maybe you’re unhealthy and in need of a doctor. Whichever is true for you, God’s words through Paul are clear and applicable today: there is always a way out.

God’s words through Paul are clear and applicable today: there is always a way out.

Consider: Think about your last temptation. Was there a way out? What needs to change for you to take the way out next time?
