New Testament:
1 Corinthians 5:1-13

Summary: Sexual Immorality Defiles the Church
  

For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. ~ 1 Corinthians 5:7

For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. ~ 1 Corinthians 5:7

 

Today we’ll read about separation. The background of the chapter is the Passover Feast. The presence of the immoral man should have turned the feast into a funeral. But the church was boasting about the sinner instead of weeping over him. Tolerating known sin in the church is like putting leaven into the Passover Feast. It does not belong. And there was celebration. Paul saw the Christian life as keeping the feast that is feeding on Christ, being ready to move, and being sure we are not defiled by sin. The Lamb has set us free and we’re on our way to our promised inheritance. And we’ll read about isolation. Sin in the life of the believer is far worse than sin in the life of an unbeliever. We cannot isolate ourselves from the world, but we can separate ourselves from disobedient believers so that God can discipline them.
