Paul reminds the Corinthians that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of heaven. (1 Corinthians 6:9) He then starts to name off many types of sinful people. All this negative talk begins to turn positive. “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 6:11) We know that each one of us has sinned and fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23), but we also have the opportunity Paul is talking about here. We can all be washed, sanctified, and justified, but we have to turn from sin and follow the Lord everyday.
