1 Cor. 5:1-13 – NIV

John 17:14-15 – NIV

How did Paul instruct the church to deal with unrepentant sin?

  1. Be filled with grief for the person and the potential harm it could cause (Vs.2)
  2. Remove the person from influence (Vs.2)
  3. Prioritize the salvation of the offender (Vs. 5)
  4. Get rid of all sin (Vs.6-8)
  5. Re-evaluate your close relationships (Vs. 9-11)
  6. Commit the judgment of the lost to God and consider the discipline of believers the responsibility of the church

*The greatest miracle that God can do today is to take an unholy man out of an unholy world and make him holy, then put him back into that unholy world and keep him holy in it. (Leonard Ravenhill)

The Lord disciplines those He loves! (Heb. 12:5)
