The Christian life!

Simple Gospel Summation
Reverend LC Muzembi 
Sometimes as believers we have questions about what’s allowed or not allowed in our fellowships. People ask themselves why can’t our leaders see that something is amiss here?

There are forms of immoral behaviours which if one person in a fellowship is allowed to go on doing, will soon affect the whole church. So Paul said if you don’t quickly deal with such matters, unethical behaviours, "your glorying is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump? Therefore purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new lump, since you truly are unleavened. For indeed Christ, our Passover, was sacrificed for us" 1 Corinthians 5:6-7.

Immorality, it doesn’t matter what it is,  is like leaven, it must be judged otherwise it will affect the whole lump. Jesus said, "Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy" Luke 12:1.

What is it you should judge?

Paul said, "...I have written to you not to keep company with anyone named a brother, who is sexually immoral, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner-not even to eat with such a person" 1 Corinthians 5:11

What about none believers?
He said, "what have I to do with judging those also who are outside? Do you not judge those who are inside?" 1 Corinthians 5:12. It isn’t our job to judge outsiders, but it certainly is our job to judge and deal strongly with those who are members of the church who can’t stay pure, but are such as  continue to live in sexual sin, or are covetous,  cheats, thieves and idol worshipers. "In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, when you are gathered together, along with my spirit, with the power of our Lord Jesus Christ, deliver such a one to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus" 1 Corinthians 5:4-5.

Therefore “put away from yourselves the evil person.” You must remove the evil person from among you.

God bless,

Sit down, Martha!

The story of Martha and Mary tells us that there are two types of Christians out there; where one is a worshipper and another is a waitperson or server. You can choose what you want to be, that’s to be a worshipper or server. But listen to this before you do; " Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus' feet and heard His word. But Martha was distracted with much serving, and she approached Him and said, "Lord, do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me." And Jesus answered and said to her, "Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. But one thing is needed, and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her. "" Luke 10:38-42. Mary chose the best part, to sit down at his feet and not be worried, frustrated, confused and troubl

The Great Flood

May the LORD say to you, " Come into the ark, you and all your household, because I have seen that you are righteous before Me in this generation, " Genesis 7:1. Yes, may it become true of you that you are righteous, right standing before Him in this generation. If it’s the case, The LORD will shut you in, He will spread his royal pavilion over you. David says, " For in the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall set me high upon a rock, " Psalm 27:5.  My friend, you need the Lord like never before, to hide you when all living things around you are destroyed by this great flood, this pandemic of our time. But like Noah, remain alive in the ark my friend. Similar Posts  Let there be light The history of creation Life in God’s garden Trees are good Where is your brother?

The sons of God saw the daughters of men

God created man, both male and female he created them; he first formed man, Adam, " of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being, " Genesis 2:7. Secondly, the LORD God said, " It is not good that man should be alone; I will make him a helper comparable to him, " Genesis 2:18. The LORD then caused a deep sleep to fall on Adam, " and he slept; and He took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh in its place. Then the rib which the LORD God had taken from man He made into a woman, and He brought her to the man. And Adam said: "This is now bone of my bones And flesh of my flesh; She shall be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man, " Genesis 2:21-23. I hear Paul say, " For man is not from woman, but woman from man, " 1 Corinthians 11:8. And Moses says man are sons of God, and women are daughters of men. Eve when she conceived and bore Cain, she said, " I have acquired a
