1 Corinthians 5
1Co 5:7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us:
THIS IS AN INSTRUCTION TO HELP US WIN. Paul here instructs us to purge out the old leaven.
The instruction is akin to what God told the Jews. He told them to remove every leaven from their homes before the celebration of the Passover.
They were to search their homes and remove every trace of leaven.
Now leaven is a type of wrong attitudes, sin, and vice.
We are to remove them from our lives.
It therefore means that the Believer is not powerless before these things!
It means that the Believer is truly above these vices, sins, and wrong attitudes.
The good news is as a New Creation, the seed of God is in the Believer.
He is made in the nature of God. He is made righteous.
He is indwelt by the Precious Holy Spirit.
In him is the divine ability to remove Leaven.
In You, the child of God is the divine ability to remove leaven.
You can remove leaven; every trace of it from your life.
All it takes has been deposited in your spirit.
Rise up and put the righteousness in you to work.
You are a wonder to your generation, don’t allow Leaven to stop you.
The greater One lives on the inside of you.
To the ends of the earth!
God bless you richly with great grace and many blessings!
