Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump? (1 Corinthians 5:6)
Today's Morsel: I was once watching a Tom and Jerry cartoon, and Tom was making a cake. It called for adding yeast to the flour. Instead of putting in just a little yeast, he threw in the enter jar. When his cake began to rise, it blow up his stove.
Paul said that sin is like yeast (leaven). Just a little and it affects the whole body. When you say that you are born again, your sin doesn't just affect you, it affects the whole body of believers. In many ways, Paul, like Jesus, always used simple life applications to address a larger issue. The church at Corinth was allowing sinful things to be accepted. They weren't realizing that it was affecting the entire body of Christ. And so Paul wanted them to understand that just the little sin they were allowing to take place was like yeast inside of bread dough. It would affect the entire church. This is why each of us who say that we are of Christ, must purge ourselves daily to ensure that we don't let sin enter or remain in our lives, because sooner or later it will affect not only us, but the entire body of Christ as well.
Sing: I came to Jesus weary worn and sad, He took my sins away, He took my sins away. And now on Him, I roll my every care, He took my sins away.
