Know ye not that the unrighteous
shall not inherit the kingdom of God?
Be not deceived: neither fornicators,
nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor
effeminate, nor abusers of
themselves with mankind, Nor
thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards,
nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall
inherit the kingdom of God. And such
were some of you: but ye are washed,
but ye are sanctified, but ye are
justified in the name of the Lord
Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
1 Corinthians 6:9-11

|What kind of background do you come from? I don't talk much about my life prior to coming to Christ
because like many of you I was involved in things that I truly regret. Because of that the last portion
of today's text means a lot to me.
Starting in the beginning of the text, we see that Paul doesn't beat around the bush when it comes to
presenting truth. The Corinthians, for one reason or another may have been in danger of accepting
certain practices, or at least not taking the stand they should against them. Whatever the reason was,
Paul, without apology said very sternly that the " unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God". He
then goes on to say don't be fooled, the following people will not inherit the kingdom of God (be in
Heaven): fornicators, idolaters, adulterers, effeminate, abusers of themselves with mankind, thieves,
covetous, drunkards, revilers, and extortioners.
So does that mean that those who are guilty of something on this list will not make it to Heaven? Paul
answers that question in the rest of the text and he starts by saying "and such were some of you";
remember he was speaking to Christians when he said this. He basically said you guys clean up well, you
look and act respectable now, but don't forget what you were prior to coming to Christ. And now comes
some of the greatest words in the Bible; he said "but you are washed, but you are sanctified, but you
are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God". By repenting, and placing
their faith in Christ, they turned away from the sinful practices they were involved in, and as a result
they were washed (cleansed from sin), sanctified (set apart for God's use), and justified (acquitted of
all charges), and so is the case for EVERY true Christian.
For those who know Christ, the words washed, sanctified, and justified should bring abundant relief!
However, the words "and such were some of you" should also keep us from any spiritual pride because
only through Christ are we in right standing with God.
