Commentary by Pastor Michael White:

“Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? … And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God” (1 Cor 6:9,11). None of us is righteous on our own. God demands perfection, but none of us is perfect on our own. So how do we inherit the kingdom of God? By accepting Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. When we accept Jesus, our sins are washed away. Death passes over us because we are marked with the blood of Jesus Christ and we are granted eternal life! Without Jesus, we’re grouped with fornicators, idolaters, adulterers and murderers – because he who falls short in one letter of the Law falls short in all (James 2:10). But with and in Jesus Christ, we are saved! God will see us as He sees His Only Son: holy and righteous!

Prayer:

Father, thank You for Your Son! Thank You that I don’t have to be judges with the unrighteousness. Thank You that by the blood of Jesus Christ, I am redeemed!
