The Daily Breath of God
Monday, June 26 2023
Don't fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, or are thieves, or greedy people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people - none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God. Some of you were once like that. But you were cleansed; you were made holy; you were made right with God by calling on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. 1 Corinthians 6:9-11 NLT
There has never been a family, a community, a state or a nation that has become better when these sins are the habits of its people. The sadness of our time is that our nation not only does these things but now calls them good an acceptable. Don’t fool yourselves. None of these will inherit the kingdom of God. Some of you were once like that. But there is a living truth that our Lord has provided in the midst of all this, it is called grace. You were cleansed; you were made holy; you were made right with God by calling on the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. Grace is God's love in Jesus Christ to not only release us from habits that are filthy by nature, but to create a new nature that brings righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. (Romans 14:17, 18). Righteousness is deliverance from the quilt and condemnation of our sin and deliverance from the power it has over us. Peace is the living harmony of the Holy Spirit living in us. Joy is the results of God’s righteousness and peace. Grace produces habits that have their foundation in God's love and in that place there is no moral rot. Today let the life of his grace set you free from habits that do not bless you or anyone else. In his grace you have been cleansed, made holy and made right with God as sons and daughters, so now let you behavior praise him. This life is now and forever yours because of his grace in you. Enjoy!
