1 Cor. 4 : 14 ~ 21; 5:1~8
14 I’m not writing this to make you feel ashamed, but to warn you as my dear children.
15 You may have 10,000 mentors who work for the Messiah,[g] but not many fathers. For in the Messiah[h] Jesus I became your father through the gospel.
16 So I urge you to imitate me.
17 That’s why I sent Timothy to you. He is my dear and dependable son in the Lord and will help you remember how I live for the Messiah[i] Jesus as I teach everywhere in every church.
18 Some of you have become arrogant, as though I were not coming to evaluate[j] you.
19 But I will come to you soon if it’s the Lord’s will. Then I’ll discover not only what these arrogant people are saying but also what power they have,
20 for the kingdom of God isn’t just talk, but also power.
21 Which do you prefer? Should I come to you with a stick, or with love and a gentle spirit?
1 It is actually reported that sexual immorality exists among you, and of a kind that is not found even among the gentiles. A man is actually living with his father’s wife!
2 And you are being arrogant instead of being filled with grief and seeing to it that the man who did this is removed from among you.
3 Even though I am away from you physically, I am with you in spirit. I have already passed judgment on the man who did this, as though I were present with you.
4 In the name of our Lord Jesus, when you are gathered together (and I am there in spirit), and the power of our Lord Jesus is there, too,
5 turn this man over to Satan for the destruction of his body,[a] so that his spirit may be saved on the Day of the Lord.[b]
6 Your boasting is not good. You know that a little yeast leavens the whole batch of dough, don’t you?
7 Get rid of the old yeast so that you may be a new batch of dough, since you are to be free from yeast. For the Messiah,[c] our Passover, has been sacrificed.
8 So let’s keep celebrating the festival, neither with old yeast nor with yeast that is evil and wicked, but with yeast-free bread that is both sincere and true.
