Watch your step!
Be careful that you don’t fall – 1 Corinthians 10:12
Here in 1 Corinthians, the apostle Paul is writing to a group of Christian people who were unaware that their lifestyles were displeasing to God. Chapter 10 is a warning chapter. Paul takes examples from the long history of Israel to point out that rather than ‘standing firm’, as they presumptuously believed, they were in danger of falling over the cliff edge! So what were they overlooking? What were the things that could cause them to fall so badly?
Paul spells some of them out in verses 7-10. Firstly was the danger of too much partying (v7), then sexual immorality (v8) in all it’s Spirit grieving forms. After that comes pushing the boundaries – walking in the grey areas, rather than the light (testing Christ v9). Then, finally.... wait for it..... Grumbling! Is grumbling such a sin? Yes it is (v10). All these (and more) are stumbling blocks – deadly ones! So, watch your step and be careful how you walk in the Christian Life. These are not idle warnings, but serious ones. Paul is deeply concerned for the well being of his flock. Don’t play with sin – it’s lethal!
Best, and safest to ‘keep in step with the Spirit’ (Gal 5:25). That means keeping close, really close to God, in joyful obedience and willing service.
