1 Corinthians 5

1 Corinthians 5 – A little Sin is a Lot!

“Your boasting is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump?” 1 Corinthians 5:6

Today, we live in a society with declining moral standards. Evidence is seen on the television, which encourages sexual promiscuity and unnecessary violence. Contemporary music shares the same themes, which is often laced with sexual conduct, drugs, and foul language. The effect that these mediums have had on our children reveal a startling dark-side; record cases of depression and suicide.

No longer are youths pursuing good etiquettes, rather acting “cool” and being superficial is preferred. This destructive attitude started with just a little bit of sin. And with time, after it took its course, it became“a little leaven (sin) that has leavened the whole lump.”

 

CHALLENGE

Let me ask you boldly, how is your relationship with sin, as in the stuff that you do that is bad? Do you grieve over it? Does your soul vex when you allow a little leaven in your life? When sin is unharnessed, it can destroy your life. Satan uses it to bind man to misery, ultimately hindering them from ever experiencing God’s joy. Praise God that Jesus is in the business of saving humanity from this bondage. Are you struggling with sin? Why not take a firm stand against it and arm yourself with God’s weapons today!
