Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

November 2 - Morning

“I wrote to you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people— not at all meaning the people of this
world who are immoral, or the greedy and swindlers, or idolaters. In that case you would have to leave this world.
But now I am writing to you that you must not associate with anyone who claims to be a brother or sister but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or slanderer, a drunkard or swindler. Do not even eat with such people. What business
is it of mine to judge those outside the church?
Are you not to judge those inside?” "

- First Corinthians 5:9-12

Avoiding Associations    

Here in First Corinthians 5:9-12 Paul refers to an earlier letter where he told the Corinthians “not to associate with sexually immoral people.” The Greek verb translated as “to associate with” is literally “mix up together” and is also used by Paul in reference to avoiding believers who were idle and did not work for the food they ate in Thessalonica:

“In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, we command you, brothers and sisters, to keep away from every believer who is idle and disruptive and does not live according to the teaching you received from us…Take special note of anyone who does not obey our instruction in this letter. Do not associate with them, in order that they may feel ashamed.” – 2 Thessalonians 3:6 and 14

Paul makes it clear he is talking about avoiding Christians who are not living according to the Word of God. The Corinthians are told not to associate with people who claim to be Christians, but are immoral, greedy, idolaters, slanderers, drunkards or swindlers. Paul makes it clear he is not talking about judging the unbelievers in the world, because:

“In that case you would have to leave this world…What business is it of mine to judge those outside the church?” – 1 Corinthians 5:10, 12

But, Paul does make it clear, “Are you not to judge those inside?” The world will always be sinful and continue to go from bad to worse, but inside the church we should be part of individual and cooperate transformation and growth.
  Christian Quote from Church History

“There are rumors that the world will end in 1532. I hope it won’t be long...the world cannot last much longer.”
- Martin Luther in 1532

Something to Ponder??
God created the world to
be a temple where people would live with him.
