Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us: therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. 1 Corinthians 5:7-8

And when he had given thanks, he brake it, and said, Take, eat: this is my body, which is broken for you: this do in remembrance of me. After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, this cup is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do shew the Lord's death till he come. 1 Corinthians 11:24-26

How to Spot a True Christian

It's not the outward gilding, 1 Sam 16:7; Eccl 7:22

But the inward man of heart, 1 Sam 16:7; Psa 27:8

That marks them as peculiar, Acts 4:13; 1 Pet 2:9

And from others set apart, Psa 4:3; Luke 12:32; James 1:21

For they look like other people, 1 Sam 16:7; Luke 12:32; 2 Cor 4:6

In outward dress and walk, John 7:24; 1 Thes 1:5; 1 Pet 1:15

But it's their speech betrays them, Rom 10:15; Eph 5:11; Col 1:28

When they commence to talk, Psa 145:11; 2 Cor 3:12;

They claim the promise of eternal life, John 10:28; 17:3

With immortality gained through, Him 1 Cor 15:53; Titus 2:11; 2 Tim 1:10

It's not of man but from God, 1 Thes 4:14; 2 Tim 1:10

The grave is not the bitter end, John 6:40; Acts 17:31

The dead will soon awaken, John 5:28-29; Acts 26:23; 1 Cor 15:20

And come to their border again, Jer 31:16-17; 1 Thes 4:16

And those Bible histories, 1 Cor 10:11; 2 Pet 1:21

They treasure every one, 1 Cor 10:11; Heb 10:1

As sacred types and shadows, Heb 8:5; 10:1

Of better things to come, Matt 5:18; Col 2:17; Heb 9:23

Christ's work is their foundation, 1 Cor 3:11; Eph 2:20

And not the creeds of men, Matt 15:9; 1 Cor 1:19

His truth their shield and buckler, Psa 91:4; 119:160

From error guides them, Psa 33:4; 119:104

They talk about His kingdom, Psa 145:11; Heb 7:19

The golden age to come, Matt 6:10; Acts 3:21

When all blind eyes shall open, Isa 35:5; 1 Cor 4:5

The lame shall leap and run, Isa 35:6; Matt 11:5

The redeemed return to Zion, Isa 1:27; 35:10; 51:11; Exo 15:13

All sorrow and sighing flee, Isa 35:10; 52:9; Rev 21:4

The desire of all nations, Hag 2:7; John 6:45

This earth an Eden once again, Isa 35:1, 6; Rev 22:2

But not by man's own work, John 15:5; Jude 1:15

To God they are set apart, Psa 50:5; 2 Tim 2:21

Their money, time and talent, Rom 12:1-3; 1 Tim 6:17-19

They give with willing heart, Luke 6:38; 2 Cor 9:7

They care not for earth's treasures, Matt 6:19-20; Luke 12:33

The heavenly prize they would win, Rom 2:4-11; Phil 3:14

And gladly toil and suffer, Rom 8:18; 1 Tim 4:10; 2 Tim 2:12

That redemption song to sing, Eph 5:19; Rev 5:9; 14:3

Would you like to be a creature, John 17:16; 2 Cor 5:17; Col 3:10

That walks the narrow way, Matt 7:14; Eph 4:24; Heb 12:14

Then make your consecration, 1 Cor 6:11; 1 Thes 4:3

Count the cost: decide today, Luke 14:28; 2 Tim 2:21;1 Pet 3:15

If you stand for Christ, 1 Cor 16:13; 2 Thes 2:15; Rev 2:10

It will mean contempt and scorn, Acts 5:41; Rom 12:14; 1 Pet 2:20

It will be too late for glory, Luke 13:24-25; Rom 1:32; 2:2-3; 2 Cor 5:10

When the true Christians are gone. 1 Cor 15:52; 1 Thes 4:17; Rev 3:21; 22:4
