What’s in your oven?

 

Are you unleavened?

 

Your boasting is not good. Don’t you know that a little yeast leavens the whole batch of dough? Get rid of the old yeast, so that you may be a new unleavened batch—as you really are. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. Therefore let us keep the Festival, not with the old bread leavened with malice and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.” –  1 Corinthians 5:6-8

 

“Your boasting is no good.”

 

Again the law and legality and do this don’t do that based religion causes this to happen! Look at the last half of 7:

 

For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed.”

 

The old bread here is just like the old wine skins that Jesus talked about in Mat. 9:17. The whole New Testament to include the prophecies in the Old Testament speak of the new covenant and Jesus is it.

 

What causes you to be more puffed up with pride:

 

1)      Look at what I did and all the laws that I follow

 

OR

 

2)      Jesus paid my debt that I could never pay and He made me Holy as He was Holy.

 

Who was the sacrificial lamb?

 

Why was He sacrificed?

 

What does that mean in your life today?

 

Please take some time to meditate on this passage and remember:

 

Don’t worry- Be Grace-Full
