Purge Out the Old Leaven that We May Be a New Lump

Let's Pray:

We thank You, Lord, for Your cleansing blood. This is what we trust in every day. Lord, we are still so natural, How much, Lord, we need Your cleansing, the cleansing of Your redeeming blood.

Hymn:631
Today's Verses : 1 Cor 4:10-5:13
Key Verse:

1 Cor 5:7

 

 

Purge out the old leaven that you may be a new lump, even as you are unleavened; for our Passover, Christ, also has been sacrificed.

Footnotes:
This indicates that the apostle considered the believers God's chosen people, who have had their (Passover), as typified by the one in Exo. 12. In this (Passover), Christ is not only the Passover (lamb) but also the entire Passover. To be our Passover, He was sacrificed on the cross that we might be redeemed and (reconciled) to God. Thus, we may enjoy Him as a feast before God. In this feast no (leaven) is allowed to be present. (Sin) and the redeeming (Christ) cannot go together. (See 1 Cor 5:7 note 2)
