1 Corinthians 5:1-4 CSB – It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and the kind of sexual immorality that is not even tolerated among the Gentiles — a man is sleeping with his father’s wife.2 And you are arrogant! Shouldn’t you be filled with grief and remove from your congregation the one who did this?3 Even though I am absent in the body, I am present in spirit. As one who is present with you in this way, I have already pronounced judgment on the one who has been doing such a thing.4 When you are assembled in the name of our Lord Jesus, and I am with you in spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus
In this house we groan
1 Corinthians 5:6-7 CSB – Your boasting is not good. Don’t you know that a little leaven leavens the whole batch of dough?7 Clean out the old leaven so that you may be a new unleavened batch, as indeed you are. For Christ our Passover lamb has been sacrificed.
We walk by faith, not by sight
2 Corinthians 5:14-17 CSB – For the love of Christ compels us, since we have reached this conclusion, that one died for all, and therefore all died.15 And he died for all so that those who live should no longer live for themselves, but for the one who died for them and was raised.16 From now on, then, we do not know anyone from a worldly perspective. Even if we have known Christ from a worldly perspective, yet now we no longer know him in this way.17Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, and see, the new has come!
Jesus makes us new
2 Corinthians 5:21 CSB – He made him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.
