7. Why We Should Demonstrate Change (1 Corinthians 6:1-20)

1 Corinthians (part seven)

"Don't do that! That's what the nonbelievers do!" I think this would be Paul's title for 1 Corinthians 6. Christians have distinguishing marks that cause us to stand out from our culture. We can be identified by our love for one another as well as our high moral standards. But it seems that the church in Corinth needed to be reminded of these things. Their arguments were being broadcast before unbelievers in court, and their conduct shared too much in common with an immoral culture. We, too, need to be reminded that the work of Christ to transform us internally will be demonstrated through external change. Our treatment of other believers should reveal our love for one another, and our purity should reflect our gratitude for the high price that God paid to purchase us.
