62 To him Yeshua said, “No one who puts his hand to the plow and keeps looking back is fit to serve in the Kingdom of God.”
I cannot fall back on past success and consider myself actively working for the Kingdom. Adonai commands that I actively show proof of my trust through action. Abba grant that I be that strong worker.
1 Corinthians 5:1-2
It is actually being reported that there is sexual sin among you, and it is sexual sin of a kind that is condemned even by pagans—a man is living with his stepmother! And you stay proud? Shouldn’t you rather have felt some sadness that would have led you to remove from your company the man who has done this thing?
In an effort to be inclusive to all people, we as the body of believers have become like the congregation in Corinth, including those who have no business being included. This is not a judgement about people’s sin, we have all sinned, but Yeshua has always told us to “go and sin no more.” That was the problem in Corinth, the man was unrepentant and not giving up his selfish desire. We are to give up our unnatural selfish sin for a supernatural selfless salvation. We are to be that new creation in Yeshua. Lord let me always be clean before You, leaning only on Your Word and helping others to see Your salvation in Yeshua. I ask this in Yeshua’s name, amen.
