This is a Blog for those interested in following hard after His heart. Those willing to strive to live a moment by moment life as we go through the transformation process with Him. It is not an easy life but the Father expects each of us to become an offering for His pleasure. So, if this is you, then let’s journey together hand in hand. I am humbled that you have chosen to walk with me. Thanks!

The Scriptures —Study 4— 1 Corinthians 5 and 6
Study 4 From The Book of 1 Corinthians Is: 1
Corinthians 5 and 6
1.Notice in chapter 5 the
distinction in the attitudes enjoined towards sinning Christians and sinning
non-Christians. What special actions are
here demanded of the local church, and why are such actions necessary?
2.6:12-20. These verses stress the permanent
significance of the Christian’s body. List the points here mentioned. What does it mean to glorify God in your
body? What kind of actions are (a) appropriate, and (b) undesirable or even
3.6:1-11. What reasons does Paul
give here for viewing the public washing by Christians of their dirty linen as
a denial of the Church’s mission in the world?
1.5: 2. ‘Arrogant’: or ‘puffed
up’. Used often by Paul in this letter (4:18, 19; 5:2; 8: 1; 13:5).
2.5:5 Paul implies that physical
affliction may follow excommunication.
3.5: 6-8. Paul enforces his point
by referring to the Passover practice of searching out and destroying all the
old leaven before (not after) the Passover Lamb is eaten. See Ex. 12:14, 15, 19.
