Dan Martin preaches from 1 Corinthians 5.1-13 entitled "Hand this man over". This is part of the 2012 series From 1 Corinthians entitiled "Fixing a Broken Church".


Unrepentant sin cannot be tolerated in the church

1) Sin should cause grief, not pride (v1-2)

2) The goal of church discipline is to correct sin (v3-5)

3) The old can't stay with the new (v6-13)

Next steps:

1) Repent of complacency towards sin

2) Reflect on what it means to have a new nature in Christ. See Colossians 3 and Ephesians 4.

3) Be born again. Turn back to God, confess your sins, ask God for forgiveness and a new life in Jesus' name.

4) Resolve to correct your Christian brothers and sisters when necessary, in love.

5) Resolve to stop resisting or hiding from correction.
