Bible study on 1 Corinthians – Chapter 5
Dear brothers and sisters,
In this bible study on the 5thchapter on the book of Romans, we will discuss the following subjects:
- Dealing with a case of incest
Dealing with a case of incest
To me this is a very shocking chapter, and as we can read for Paul this was exactly the same. But as we can read in Corinthians people actually were in the sin of incest, but were also proud of it! But we should not think that this only happened in those times, or in places far away. No, it could even be happening in the street where you life. The world has become so wicked that even incest is not even a no-go for some people.
Considering Paul immediately took this as an prayer point to lay before the Holy Spirit, we should also do this. And especially, when we know exactly wo is doing this (or even any other sin for that matter). Than we need to pray specifically that all sexual sins are broken out of our lifes and will never have any ground in our lifes, but also that incest and any kind of sin , will ever be part of our lifes or worse: be accepted as normal.
Also something that I consider a very important part of this chapter is that fact that Paul tells us (and I believe through the Holy Spirit) that should not associate us with sexually immoral people. Paul however is mentioning our Christian brothers and sisters, specifically, because they should (and us neither) not be sexually immoral, greedy, an idolater and swindler.
God, I pray to you that you really help us not to be in any kind of those sins. And if someone is, please help them to move away from it and follow you and ask forgiveness!
