Today’s Reading is: 1 Cor 5:1-13
Paul Condemns Spiritual Pride
5 I can hardly believe the report about the sexual immorality going on
among you—something that even pagans don’t do. I am told that a
man in your church is living in sin with his stepmother. 2 You are so
proud of yourselves, but you should be mourning in sorrow and
shame. And you should remove this man from your fellowship.
Even though I am not with you in person, I am with you in the Spirit.
And as though I were there, I have already passed judgment on this
man 4 in the name of the Lord Jesus. You must call a meeting of the
church. I will be present with you in spirit, and so will the power of our
Lord Jesus. 5 Then you must throw this man out and hand him over to
Satan so that his sinful nature will be destroyed and he himself will be
saved on the day the Lord returns.
Welcome to Holy Trinity. If this is your first visit to Holy Trinity, or if you have
recently joined us, we’d just like to say how great it is to have you with us. We
are a church full of people who are trying to live lives that reflect Jesus and
would be so pleased if you would consider joining with us. Please don’t go
away today without touching base. You can do that by filling in one of the
‘Welcome Cards’ in the foyer and joining us for refreshments after the service
in the Hall. All the information on our church family life is
on our website:
We look forward to getting to know you.
With our blessing, Stephen and Sharon Walker
Your boasting about this is terrible. Don’t you realize that this sin is
like a little yeast that spreads through the whole batch of dough? 7 Get
rid of the old “yeast” by removing this wicked person from among you.
Then you will be like a fresh batch of dough made without yeast,
which is what you really are. Christ, our Passover Lamb, has been
sacrificed for us. 8 So let us celebrate the festival, not with the old
bread of wickedness and evil, but with the new bread of sincerity and

When I wrote to you before, I told you not to associate with people
who indulge in sexual sin. 10 But I wasn’t talking about unbelievers
who indulge in sexual sin, or are greedy, or cheat people, or worship
idols. You would have to leave this world to avoid people like that. 11 I
meant that you are not to associate with anyone who claims to be a
believer yet indulges in sexual sin, or is greedy, or worships idols, or
is abusive, or is a drunkard, or cheats people. Don’t even eat with
such people.
It isn’t my responsibility to judge outsiders, but it certainly is your
responsibility to judge those inside the church who are sinning. 13 God
will judge those on the outside; but as the Scriptures say, “You must
remove the evil person from among you.”
