A Purified Membership (1 Corinthians 5:6–8)

First Corinthians 5 teaches us vital lessons about essential and meaningful church membership. We saw, in vv. 1–5, that the local church is to be a pure membership, and, in vv. 6–8, we learn that the local church is to be a purified membership. Paul was passionate about confronting and condemning intolerable behaviour in the church because the church is to be holy. In fact, as we will see in this text, the church is holy, which demands the imperative to be holy. The church is therefore to be an increasingly purified membership. We will consider this truth under three headings: 1. Purification is a Corporate Concern (v. 6) 2. Purification is a Corporate Commitment (v. 7) 3. Purification is a Corporate Celebration (v. 8)
