1 Corinthians 5:6-8
Your boasting is not good. Don’t you know the saying, “It takes only a little hametz to leaven a whole batch of dough?” Get rid of the old hametz, so that you can be a new batch of dough, because in reality you are unleavened. For our Pesach lamb, the Messiah, has been sacrificed. So let us celebrate the Seder not with leftover hametz, the hametz of wickedness and evil, but with the matzah of purity and truth.
As we become new creatures in Yeshua we have to give up the sin in our lives. The same is for our congregations, Sha’ul was addressing the congregation in Corinth for tolerating the participation of a man having sex with his stepmother, as long as they allowed this sin to exist without correction in their body they would be ineffective in the greater body of Yeshua. The same is for us personally as long as we tolerate the sin that we have yet to confess we will be ineffective in our witness for Adonai. Lord forgive me for not standing for Your Word with boldness when others attack it. Forgive me for putting myself before others when they are in need and I am lazy. Forgive me Lord for not more closely following You. I ask this all in Yeshua’s name, amen.
