1 Corinthians 5:1-8; Psalm 5; Luke 6:6-11

Freedom in Christ

Paul is telling the proud people of Corinth to be unleavened bread; not puffed up with pride but dependent on Christ. Jesus shows that he is Master of the Sabbath by curing a person on the Sabbath, in a synagogue. He is talking Messiah talk, he is talking Kingly talk; saving life, bringing wholeness of life. What is the yeast in me that is puffing me up to be independent ofChrist? Freedom in Christ is when we daily renew our dependence on him and invite him to lead us to freedom from those areas that enslave and bring sadness.
