Reading: 1 Cor 6:9-11
9 Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men 10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And that is what some of you were. 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.
Thought: If you were to read just the first two verses, I suspect that you like me would be in trouble, and dare I say, I suspect this list is not exclusive! I know I fall into these categories from time to time. Being in Christ, however, we have been given a new status. We have been declared clean and innocent and members of the Kingdom of God!
Prayer: Thank you for your grace shown to me in Christ that has moved me into your kingdom. Teach me not to look down on others in verses 9-10 but extend your grace so that they too may find the freedom of verse 11.
