Day 64, March 5 - 1 Cor. 6

Click here for today's reading

I always forget what condition the church in Corinth was during this letter from Paul. They were suing each other and the sexual immorality appears to be a big problem. However, I want to be careful not to throw stones, all churches have struggles they are filled with people. It is a reminder to pray for each other that we don't fall into sin.

  1. 1 Corinthians 6
    Settling Disagreements Between Christians
    5b-8 Don’t you have at least one wise person who is able to settle disagreements between believers? Instead, one believer goes to court against another believer, and this happens in front of unbelievers. You are already totally defeated because you have lawsuits against each other. Why don’t you accept the fact that you have been wronged? Why don’t you accept that you have been cheated? Instead, you do wrong and cheat, and you do this to other believers.

    9-10 Don’t you know that wicked people won’t inherit the kingdom of God? Stop deceiving yourselves! People who continue to commit sexual sins, who worship false gods, those who commit adultery, homosexuals, or thieves, those who are greedy or drunk, who use abusive language, or who rob people will not inherit the kingdom of God.

    11 That’s what some of you were! But you have been washed and made holy, and you have received God’s approval in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.

    Stay Away From Sexual Sin
    16-18 Don’t you realize that the person who unites himself with a prostitute becomes one body with her? God says, “The two will be one.” However, the person who unites himself with the Lord becomes one spirit with him. Stay away from sexual sins. Other sins that people commit don’t affect their bodies the same way sexual sins do. People who sin sexually sin against their own bodies.

    19-20 Don’t you know that your body is a temple that belongs to the Holy Spirit? The Holy Spirit, whom you received from God, lives in you. You don’t belong to yourselves. You were bought for a price. So bring glory to God in the way you use your body.
