7/11/18 Daily Bible Reading: Psalms 9-11, 1 Corinthians 5, Proverbs 11
Psalm 9:1-2 (NKJV)
I will praise You, O LORD, with my whole heart; I will tell of all Your marvelous works.
I will be glad and rejoice in You; I will sing praise to Your name, O Most High.
Psalm 10:12 (NKJV)
Arise, O LORD! O God, lift up Your hand! Do not forget the humble.
1 Corinthians 5:9-11 (BBE)
In my letter I said to you that you were not to keep company with those who go after the desires of the flesh; But I had not in mind the sinners who are outside the church, or those who have a desire for and take the property of others, or those who give worship to images; for it is not possible to keep away from such people without going out of the world completely: But the sense of my letter was that if a brother had the name of being one who went after the desires of the flesh, or had the desire for other people’s property, or was in the way of using violent language, or being the worse for drink, or took by force what was not his, you might not keep company with such a one, or take food with him.
I don’t know if I have mentioned this here, but in the Epistles Paul is instructing people IN THE CHURCH, not judging those outside our fellowship, but regarding those who claim Christ but do not follow Christ.
