Paul’s First Letter To The Corinthians (1 Corinthians 5:9-13)Phillip Stuckey, April 4, 2021
Part of the Overviews of Paul's Letters series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
We have been considering this year the need to not compartmentalize our faith. God is not God just over our gatherings as the church, but over every area of life (1 Pet. 4:11). What can we do to help one another realize this truth and live it out, not just in our life together as a church, but outside in our daily lives? Paul’s letter to the saints in Corinth shows us how the gospel helps us do this (1 Cor. 6:20).

1 Corinthians 5:9–13 (Listen)
9 I wrote to you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people—10 not at all meaning the sexually immoral of this world, or the greedy and swindlers, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world. 11 But now I am writing to you not to associate with anyone who bears the name of brother if he is guilty of sexual immorality or greed, or is an idolater, reviler, drunkard, or swindler—not even to eat with such a one. 12 For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Is it not those inside the church whom you are to judge? 13 God judges those outside. “Purge the evil person from among you.”
