I have a reason to be thankful!

The verse today is 1 Corinthians 6:11, "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."

This has huge implications if you ask me. It the verses right before it talks about those who won't inherit the kingdom of God. "And such were some of you."

I am unrighteous, I am sinful, I don't understand God, so what hope is there? But I am cleansed and set apart for His name's sake! This is an intense thing to really understand this verse and to let it effect my life. Its easy for me to forget that and live how I want, or feel condemned for the sin I have.

This verse gives me a confidence that 1) I can live according to the spirit and walk worthy of God, and 2) when I do mess up, I still have confidence that God is cleansing me and making me new.

Galations 2:20 "I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me." life
