Sin Against Brothers
…there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other.
1 Corinthians 12:25
Being a Christian doesn’t prevent you from sinning—it just gives you the power
to resist and overcome it through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Romans 3:23 tells us, “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” It
doesn’t matter if you attend church faithfully, if you’re a pastor or if
you’re the pope—everyone sins and everyone needs the forgiveness of God.
Christians in the church at Corinth were cheating and sinning against their
brothers and sisters. Church members were taking advantage of other members,
even though they were supposed to be demonstrating God’s love to a lost world.
Paul rebukes them for these things in 1 Corinthians 6:7-8. There can’t be true
fellowship when there is church division.
Pray to God right now to show you when you’ve been guilty of hurting someone
else. He may show you ongoing sin or wrongdoing from your past. Ask the Holy
Spirit to convict you of the sin in that situation and ask the Lord for
Do not deny the existence of sin in your life but acknowledge it and repent, and
you will be forgiven.
