Daily Meeting Place
1. Avoiding Lawsuits with Christians
Today's Passage: 1 Corinthians 6:1-11
Get to know your bible. It will become a good friend.
Or find the passage NASB version on Bible Gateway here.
You can search for other versions there as well. Versions even in foreign languages.
Or, for your convenience I have typed the verses below from the
New Living Testament (NLT).
Thank You for meeting me, LORD.
I welcome you into this place.
Please prepare my heart Jehovah.
Thank you for insight.
1. When one of you has a dispute with another believer, how dare you file a lawsuit and ask a secular court to decide the matter instead of taking it to other believers!
2. Don't you realize that someday we believers will judge the world? And since you are going to judge the world, can't you decide even these little things among yourselves?
3. Don't you realize that we will judge angels" So you should surely be able to resolve odinary disputes in this life.
4. If you have legal disputes about such matters, why go to oustide judges who are not respected by the church?
5. I am saying this to shame you. Isn't there anyone in all the church who is wise enough to decide these issues?
6. But instead, one believer sues another — right in front of unbelievers!
7. Even to have such lawsuits with one another is a defeat for you. why not just accept the injustice and leave it at that? Why not let yourselves be cheated?
8. Instead, you yourselves are the ones who do wrong and cheat even your fellow believers.
9. Don't you realize that those who do wrong will not inherit the Kingdom of God? Don't fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality,
10. or are thieves, or greedy people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people — none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God.
11. Some of you were once like that. But you were cleansed; you were made holy; you were made right with God by calling on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
1 Corinthians 6:1-11 NLT
