Your Personal Invitation to be Saved
and go to Heaven when your life on earth is over!!!
(1) God loves You!!
Romans 5:8, But God commendeth his love
toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.
(2) Your Sin (or Disobedience to God) has Separated You from God!!
Romans 5:12, Wherefore, as by one man sin entered into the world, and death by sin; and so death passed upon all
men, for that all have sinned:
(3) Only Jesus-Christ
can Forgive Your Sins!!
Acts 4:12, Neither is there
salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
(4) Will You Receive Jesus-Christ as
Your Lord (or Authority) & Savior (or Rescuer)??
Mark 1:15, And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
(Through Prayer) Sorrowfully tell God Your a Sinner, willing to turn from Your Sins and trust Jesus-Christ's shedding of Blood
and Death on the Cross for Full Payment of Your Sins and will Follow Him.
Welcome to Our Daily Devotional
Day we will READ a Chapter of the Bible
Look at the MEANING of that Chapter
make APPLICATION of this Chapter to my life
|A Little Leaven Levaeneth the Whole Lump|
1 Corinthians 5
1It 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.
2And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that
he that hath done this deed might be taken away from among you.
3For 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,
4In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when ye are gathered together, and my spirit, with the power
of our Lord Jesus Christ,
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.
6Your glorying is not good. Know ye
not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump?
7Purge 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:
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.
wrote unto you in an epistle not to company with fornicators:
10Yet not altogether with the fornicators of this world, or with the covetous, or extortioners, or
with idolaters; for then must ye needs go out of the world.
11But now I have written unto you not to keep company, if any man that is called a brother be a fornicator,
or covetous, or an idolator, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner; with such an one no not to eat.
12For what have I to do to judge them
also that are without? do not ye judge them that are within?
13But them that are without God judgeth. Therefore put away from among yourselves that wicked person.
|Today's Scripture Meaning: |
blames the Corinthians for connivance at an incestuous person; (1-8) and directs their behaviour towards those guilty of scandalous
Verses 1-8: The apostle notices a flagrant abuse, winked at by the Corinthians.
Party spirit, and a false notion of Christian liberty, seem to have saved the offender from censure. Grievous indeed is it
that crimes should sometimes be committed by professors of the gospel, of which even heathens would be ashamed. Spiritual
pride and false doctrines tend to bring in, and to spread such scandals. How dreadful the effects of sin! The devil reigns
where Christ does not. And a man is in his kingdom, and under his power, when not in Christ. The bad example of a man of influence
is very mischievous; it spreads far and wide. Corrupt principles and examples, if not corrected, would hurt the whole church.
Believers must have new hearts, and lead new lives. Their common conversation and religious deeds must be holy. So far is
the sacrifice of Christ our Passover for us, from rendering personal and public holiness unnecessary, that it furnishes powerful
reasons and motives for it. Without holiness we can neither live by faith in him, nor join in his ordinances with comfort
Verses 9-13: Christians are to avoid familiar converse with all who disgrace
the Christian name. Such are only fit companions for their brethren in sin, and to such company they should be left, whenever
it is possible to do so. Alas, that there are many called Christians, whose conversation is more dangerous than that of heathens!
Scripture Application: |
Each day we walk through the Bible chapter by chapter making an
application of our text to help us grow in the Lord. Many applications can be made from each day's text. Today we continue
the book of 1st Corinthians with Chapter 5 and in our text we see Paul addressing sin in the Church and failure of the Church
in Corinth to acknowledge and deal with sin affects the whole Church. In making application we are the Love the sinner but
hate the sin. We must acknowledge and deal with open sin according to the Bible or the body will be infected. Today, the Church
and body of Christ fail to acknowledge sin which has resulted in the Church losing its power and influence in the community.
How about you? Do you acknowledge and deal with the sin in your life? Let us learn from our text today and the and the instruction
of Paul to see that we must deal with sin both in our lives and in the body to see the power of God in our Churches.
