Get rid of the old yeast that you may be a new batch without yeast–as you really are: QT for Wed Nov 1, 2017, read 1 Cor 5;

Paul is seeing fellowship among Christians as the celebration of the festival. And he is asking them to get rid of the old yeast—sin, a sinful practice of worldly values, that they may be a new batch without yeast. But that’s what they are as a body of redeemed members of Christ’s body;

· What could we observe of their identity from the way they are told that they are a batch without yeast? 1 Cor 5:16-17 So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!

· What does it mean to get rid of the yeast if we are a batch without yeast? See also Lk 9:23 Then he said to them all: “If anyone would come after me, he must deny himself and take up his cross daily and follow me.

· What could we observe of the new batch getting defiled through old yeast again? Mt 13:21-22 But since he has no root, he lasts only a short time. When trouble or persecution comes because of the word, he quickly falls away. The one who received the seed that fell among the thorns is the man who hears the word, but the worries of this life and the deceitfulness of wealth choke it, making it unfruitful.

· What is/are yeast/ sin ungodly habit…, God is asking you to get rid of in your life?

· How do you want to respond to His voice?

너희는 누룩 없는 자인데 새 덩어리가 되기 위하여 묵은 누룩을 내버리라: 2017, 11, 1, 수 , QT, 고전 5장을 읽으세요; 

바울은 그리스도의 교제를 명절을 지키는 축제로 생각하고 고린도 인들에게 주님께서 그들을 위해 고난을 받으시고 누룩–죄, 없는 사람들로 만들어 주신대로 새로운 누룩 -순결한 삶, 으로 축제를 지키라고 명합니다.  그러나 새로운 누룩으로 지키는 축제는 괴악하고 묵은 누룩을 내어 버릴 때만 이루어 질 수 있습니다. 

  • 그들이 누룩이 없는 새로운 덩이라는 가르침을 통해 우리는 우리들의 신분에 대해 무엇을 관찰 할 수 있나요?  고후 5:16-17 참조 그러므로 우리가 이제부터는 어떤 사람도 육신을 따라 알지 아니하노라 비록 우리가 그리스도도 육신을 따라 알았으나 이제부터는 그같이 알지 아니하노라 그런즉 누구든지 그리스도 안에 있으면 새로운 피조물이라 이전 것은 지나갔으니 보라 새 것이 되었도다  
  • 우리들이 누룩이 없는 자들인데 묵은 누룩을 버리라는 말은 무슨뜻 일까요?  눅 9:23 참조 또 무리에게 이르시되 아무든지 나를 따라오려거든 자기를 부인하고 날마다 제 십자가를 지고 나를 따를 것이니라 
  • 새로운 누룩인 우리가 다시 묵은 누룩에 오염이 되는 것에 대해 우리는 무엇을 관찰 할 수 있나요?  마 13:21-22 참조 그 속에 뿌리가 없어 잠시 견디다가 말씀으로 말미암아 환난이나 박해가 일어날 때에는 곧 넘어지는 자요 가시떨기에 뿌려졌다는 것은 말씀을 들으나 세상의 염려와 재물의 유혹에 말씀이 막혀 결실하지 못하는 자요 
  • 주님은 당신의 삶에서 어떤 누룩/ 죄, 나쁜 습관 을 내어 버리라고 말씀 하실까요? 
  • 당신은 어떻게 주님의 음성에 응답하길 원하세요?

Don’t you know that a little yeast works through the whole batch of dough?: QT for Tue Oct 31, 2017, read 1 Cor 5;

Paul is referring the tolerance of sexual immorality in Corinthian church as a yeast that could impact the whole batch of dough/ community. He feels that the whole community will get overwhelmed with immorality unless they remove it radically. Are we willing to practice radical discipline to maintain the purity of the community? Personal and corporate purity is a crucial condition for the blessings of the Lord!

· What could we observe of the way the Lord has removed yeast from us that we might be holy? See also Heb 10:10 And by that will, we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

· What could we observe of the importance of purity as an individual or as a community? See also 2 Tim 2:20-21

In a large house, there are articles not only of gold and silver but also of wood and clay; some are for noble purposes and some for ignoble.

If a man cleanses himself from the latter, he will be an instrument for noble purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work.

· What is a yeast God is telling you about that you need to remove from your life?

· What is a yeast the Lord is pointing that you need to be aware of in your community?

· How do you want to respond to His voice?

적은 누룩이 온 덩어리에 퍼지는 것을 알지 못하느냐: 2017, 10, 31, 화, QT, 고전 5장을 읽으세요; 

공동체 안의 한 사람의 죄를 용납하는 것은 마치 적은 누룩을 넣어 온 밀가루 덩이를 부풀게 하는 것 같이 온 교회가 부패해 지도록 허락하는 것과 같기 때문에 바울은 그 누룩을 제해 버리라고 가르칩니다. 주님께서 자신의 고난을 통해 자신에게 나오는 사람들을 거룩케 해 주시고 주변의 신자들과 함께 성도라 부르심을 받은 우리가 개인적으로나 집단적으로 성찰해야 할 경계의 말씀입니다.   

  • 주님께서 우리의 삶 가운데서 누룩을 제거 하시고 거룩하게 해 주신 것에 대해 우리는 무엇을 관찰 할 수 있나요?  히 10:10 참조  

이 뜻을 따라 예수 그리스도 몸을 단번 드리심으로 말미암아 우리가 거룩함을 얻었노라 

 

 

  • 우리는 개인의 순결이나 교회의 순결의 중요성에 대해 무엇을관찰 할 수 있나요?  딤후 2: 20-21 참조  
큰 집에는  그릇과 은 그릇뿐 아니라 나무 그릇과 질그릇도 있어 귀하게 쓰는 것도 있고 천하게 쓰는 것도 있나니    
   그러므로 누구든지 이런 것에서 자기를 깨끗하게 하면 귀히 쓰는 그릇이 되어 거룩하고 주인의 쓰심에 합당하며 모든 선한 일에 준비함이 되리라 

 

  • 주님은 당신의 삶 가운데 어떤 누룩을 제하라고 말씀 하고 계실까요? 
  • 주님은 당신의 공동체에서 어떤 누룩이 있다고 말씀 하고 계실까요?

Shouldn’t you rather have been filled with grief and have put out of your fellowship the man who did this?: QT for Mon Oct 30, 2017, read 1 Cor 5;

 Paul is serious of the sexual immorality happening among Corinthians without getting punishment from the community. For, such people should have been expelled from the community and get turned over to Satan. They have defiled the temple of the Holy Spirit which is sacred, and God is going to destroy them as well. 

  •  What could we observe of the way God has called the believers together?  See also 1 Cor 1:2 To the church of God in Corinth, to those sanctified in Christ Jesus and called to be holy, together with all those everywhere who call on the name of our Lord Jesus Christ–their Lord and ours: 
  • What could we observe of the importance of purity of the body of Christ from the way Paul is demanding such people to be put out of the church?  See also 1 Cor 3:16-17 Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit lives in you? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him; for God’s temple is sacred, and you are that temple.   
  • What could we observe of the importance of the practice of discipline in the community from the way Paul is asking such man to get turned over to Satan? 
  • How should such behavior have hurt the life of the church?  See also 1 Jn 1:6-7 If we claim to have fellowship with him yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live by the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin. 
  • What is the Lord saying to you about your own life in the light? 
  • How do you want to respond to His voice? 

너희가 오히려 교만하여져서 어찌하여 통한히 여기지 아니하고 그 일 행한 자를 너희 중에서 쫓아내지 아니하였느냐: 2017 10, 30, 월, QT, 고전 5장을 읽으세요; 

하나님은 그들을  예수 그리스도의 피로 용서하사 거룩하게 해 주시고 다른 그리스도인들과 함께 성도라 칭함을 받는 거룩한 무리가 되게 해 주셨지만 고린도 인들은 자신을을 성령의 전으로 만드신 주님의 뜻을 저버리고 성적 부도덕을 용납하고 거룩한 성전을 더럽히는 악을 행하고 있습니다.  

  • 하나님께서 우리들을 다른믿는 무리와 함께 연합하여 성도라 칭함을 받도록 하신 것에 대해 무엇을 관찰 할 수 있나요?  고전 1:2 참조  고린도 있는 하나님의 교회 곧 그리스도 예수 안에서 거룩하여지고 성도라 부르심을 받은 자들과 또 각처에서 우리의 주 곧 그들과 우리의 주 되신 예수 그리스도 이름을 부르는 모든 자들에게

For the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of power: QT for Sat Oct 28, 2017 read 1 Cor 4;

Paul is not only hearing about jealousy and struggle among the Corinthians but also hostility against himself as well. And he is planning on ministry visit to Corinth. He is planning on going there not with a whip they deserve, but in love and gentle spirit. For, the kingdom of God is not a matter of talk but of the power of transformation!

* What could we observe of Paul’s character from the way he is planning going to them in love and gentle spirit? See also 2 Cor 1:24 Not that we lord it over your faith, but we work with you for your joy, because it is by faith you stand firm

* What are we learning of the father’s attitude from his plan on coming to them in love and gentle spirit? See also 1 Thess 2:7-8 but we were gentle among you, like a mother caring for her little children. We loved you so much that we were delighted to share with you not only the gospel of God but our lives as well because you had become so dear to us

* What does it mean that the kingdom of God is a matter of power? See also 2 Tim 1:7 For God did not give us a spirit of timidity, but a spirit of power, of love and of self-discipline.

* Who is God saying that you need to show the power of God to?

* How do you want to live out this power in life?

하나님의 나라는 말에 있지 아니하고 오직 능력에 있음이라: 2017, 10, 28, 토, QT고전 4장을 읽으세요;

바울은 고린도인들 가운데 시기와 다툼이 있을 뿐 아니라 자신을 향한 부정적인 태도가 있는 것을 들으며 하나님의 나라에서 무엇일 중요한지에 대해 가르칩니다. 세상적인지식이나 말보다 그리스도의 인격을드러내는 성숙함이 사람을 변화시키는 하나님의 능력을 드러내는 것이라고…

* 그들의 불경건한 태도에도 불구하고 사랑과 온유함으로 그들을 대하는 것을 통해 우리는 바울의 인격에 대해 무엇을 관찰 할 수 있나요? 고후 1:24 참조 우리가 너희 믿음을 주관하려는 것이 아니요 오직 너희 기쁨을 돕는 자가 되려 함이니 이는 너희가 믿음에 섰음이라

* 바울의 온유한 태도를 통해 우리는 영적인 부모의 사역에 대해 무엇을 관찰 할 수 있나요? 살전 2:7-8 참조 우리는 그리스도의 사도로서 마땅히 권위를 주장할 수 있으나 도리어 너희 가운데서 유순한 자가 되어 유모가 자기 자녀를 기름과 같이 하였으니 우리가 이같이 너희를 사모하여 하나님의복음뿐 아니라 우리의 목숨까지도 너희에게 주기를 기뻐함은 너희가 우리의 사랑하는 자 됨이라

* 하나님의 나라가 능력에 있다는 말은 무슨 뜻 일까요? 딤후 1:7 참조 하나님이 우리에게 주신 것은 두려워하는 마음이 아니요 오직 능력과 사랑과 절제하는 마음이니

* 하나님은 당신이 하나님의 능력을 보여 주도록 누구를 당신 주변으로 인도하셨을까요?

* 당신은 그/ 그녀에게 하나님의 능력을 보여주기 위해 무엇을 하길 원하세요?
