Re:Verse reading–1 Corinthians 5 (day six)
It is for freedom that Jesus set us free.- Paul, Galatians 5:1
Do not let any part of your body become an instrument of evil to serve sin. -Paul, Romans 6:13
“If your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off.”-Jesus, Matthew 5:30
1 Corinthians 5 is a reminder just how seriously God takes sin. The church in Corinth had become cavalier, arrogant even. They were under God’s grace after all, why should they concern themselves with sin; so they thought.
Truth is, we can’t ignore inrepentant sin. Jesus didn’t; he died to set us free to righteousness. So be free. Don’t ignore unrepentant sin in your own life…or the church. Take sin as seriously as Jesus did.
