Scripture Reading 1 Corinthians 5:6-8
“6 Your boasting is not good. Don’t you know that a little yeast leavens the whole batch of dough? 7 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. 8 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.”
We often ignore the little yeast in our lives. Compared to the whole batch it isn’t THAT bad. However, if we don’t deal with it then it will impact the whole batch. That’s what sin does. They might seem little to us. They might lack in comparison to the chains that once held us but they are still chains.
Today what is the yeast in your life that needs to be removed? What is the overlooked sin in your life that is impacting everything else. We usually get focused on the big sin in our lives and that distracts us from ever dealing with the less prevalent sin in our life. I know sin is sin to God but to us that isn’t always the case. We rank, we compare, and we justify totally unaware how dangerous the sin is we ignore. Let today be a day of reconciliation. Confess. Repent. Be empowered.
