Day 14:  The Saints Will Judge the World

Take Notes in Your You Version Bible App
1 Corinthians 6:1-11

1 When one of you has a grievance against another, does he dare go to law before the unrighteous instead of the saints? 2 Or do you not know that the saints will judge the world? And if the world is to be judged by you, are you incompetent to try trivial cases? 3 Do you not know that we are to judge angels? How much more, then, matters pertaining to this life! 4 So if you have such cases, why do you lay them before those who have no standing in the church? 5 I say this to your shame. Can it be that there is no one among you wise enough to settle a dispute between the brothers, 6 but brother goes to law against brother, and that before unbelievers? 7 To have lawsuits at all with one another is already a defeat for you. Why not rather suffer wrong? Why not rather be defrauded? 8 But you yourselves wrong and defraud—even your own brothers! 9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, 10 nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.

Study Questions

 

  1. Why does Paul stress the importance of dealing with intra-church conflict in the context of the church instead of in the courts? How do lawsuits among Christians harm our witness to the world, and how should we handle such conflicts instead?
     
  2. In vv. 9-10 Paul gives us a list of sinners that will not inherit the kingdom of God. Have you ever found yourself on that list? What good news does Paul give you in v. 11?
