1 Corinthians 5:6-8 Churches Should Be Pure

 

 

“Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump? Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us: Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.” 1 Corinthians 5:6-8 KJV

 

Does it really matter if one member of a church commits a moral sin? Surely as long as most people are ok, the church is ok. That is not what the Bible teaches.

Watch this one to see how one person’s sin can affect a whole church.

1 Corinthians 5:1-5 — Sexual Sin and Discipline

 

 

“It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father’s wife. And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you.

For I verily, as absent in body, but present in spirit, have judged already, as though I were present, concerning him that hath so done this deed, In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ, To deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus.” 1 Corinthians 5:1-5 KJV

 

Things are really hotting up in this letter. Paul deals with incest in the Church. The local church elders and members had ignored it but God calls Paul to spell out what should have happened and what they now need to do to rectify matters. Scary stuff! Not too far from the reality of the world we live in!

These were hard recordings. I trust I have dealt with them properly and that the Lord will bless His word.

1 Corinthians 4:16-21 — Tough Talk

 

 

“Wherefore I beseech you, be ye followers of me. For this cause have I sent unto you Timotheus, who is my beloved son, and faithful in the Lord, who shall bring you into remembrance of my ways which be in Christ, as I teach every where in every church. Now some are puffed up, as though I would not come to you. But I will come to you shortly, if the Lord will, and will know, not the speech of them which are puffed up, but the power. For the kingdom of God is not in word, but in power. What will ye? shall I come unto you with a rod, or in love, and in the spirit of meekness?” 1 Corinthians 4:16-21 KJV

 

No one likes it when people become overly tough. I think that the Christians in Corinth had under-estimated Paul. When ‘push came to shove’ he gave them a choice – you repent now and I’ll come and see you all meek and mild OR you dig your heels in and in God’s power you face what God’s sending to you.

How would you react to that type of talk?

1 Corinthians 4:6-15 — Theatrical Christianity

 

 

“And these things, brethren, I have in a figure transferred to myself and to Apollos for your sakes; that ye might learn in us not to think of men above that which is written, that no one of you be puffed up for one against another. For who maketh thee to differ from another? and what hast thou that thou didst not receive? now if thou didst receive it, why dost thou glory, as if thou hadst not received it?

Now ye are full, now ye are rich, ye have reigned as kings without us: and I would to God ye did reign, that we also might reign with you. For I think that God hath set forth us the apostles last, as it were appointed to death: for we are made a spectacle unto the world, and to angels, and to men. We are fools for Christ’s sake, but ye are wise in Christ; we are weak, but ye are strong; ye are honourable, but we are despised. Even unto this present hour we both hunger, and thirst, and are naked, and are buffeted, and have no certain dwelling place; And labour, working with our own hands: being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we suffer it: Being defamed, we intreat: we are made as the filth of the world, and are the offscouring of all things unto this day.

I write not these things to shame you, but as my beloved sons I warn you. For though ye have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet have ye not many fathers: for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel.” 1 Corinthians 4:6-15 KJV

 

Paul’s use of language in this passage is amazing. He is arguing the case that life is tough as a Christian and that’s the way it is meant to be. One day we will reign like royalty but for the moment it’s going to get tough from time to time. Not the message we want to hear but probably the one we really need.

What’s the theatrical bit? Watch to find out!

1 Corinthians 4:3-5 — My Conscience Is Clear… But!

 

 

“But with me it is a very small thing that I should be judged of you, or of man’s judgment: yea, I judge not mine own self. For I know nothing by myself; yet am I not hereby justified: but he that judgeth me is the Lord. Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.” 1 Corinthians 4:3-5 KJV

 

“Good to see what you are doing but you are doing it for all the wrong reasons!” Anyone ever said that to you? Ouch, that hurt! My conscience is clear! Does that make it ok? Not really says the word of God!

Watch this one, it will help you when thinking about your motivation for doing things.
