1 Corinthians 5
Good morning! Here is the suggested reading for this week :)
I have to admit, getting into the word this morning was less than inspiring. I seemed to struggle with Paul's call to correct the Corinthian church and our need to love other believers right where they are. Lord help us see, because You are love...
God, thank You for helping us to see, as believers, we are to RISE in sincerity and truth, rather than allowing our old nature to carry on in our lives, continuing to rise in the flesh. You in Your love for each soul and Your church, DO bring correction. Just as Hebrews 12:6 states: For the LORD disciplines those He loves and Proverbs 3:12: For the LORD corrects those He loves, just as a father corrects a child in whom he delights.
I pray pride does not hinder Your message this morning and we joyfully receive understanding and wisdom provided from Your Spirit, so we too can learn from Paul and the Corinthian church. Just as we have been called to "get off the milk" and mature in Christ, You seem to be saying it is time to let go of some things, in order to grow and move deeper into our relationship with You. I trust you'll expand our understanding and shine light where it needs to be shed, in Jesus Name, amen ❤
