Judging the World
Posted: Friday, August 9
1 Corinthians 5:1-13
Verse of the day
What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside?
(1 Corinthians 5:12)
The church in Corinth had all sorts of moral problems and issues of doctrine. Paul tackles a serious issue in chapter 5 resulting in him having the people remove the immoral person from the church. He concludes his teaching with a question, “What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church? Are you not to judge those inside?
It isn’t our job to judge the world of sin and rid the sinners from it. We are called to share the gospel with the sinners of the world so they can turn to Christ and be saved. We cannot fix the world by judging it, but rather by introducing them to the One who can change them from the inside. The changed disciple of Christ will change the world.
