1 Corinthians 6:9-14

9 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, 10 nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 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. 12 All things are lawful for me, but all things are not helpful. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any. 13 Foods for the stomach and the stomach for foods, but God will destroy both it and them. Now the body is not for sexual immorality but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. 14 And God both raised up the Lord and will also raise us up by His power.

Sanctification, do any of us really know what this means? Is it something that can be achieved in this world? Paul tells the Corinthians that they were sanctified. And we are being sanctified through the blood of Jesus. But none of us will be fully sanctified until we are like Him. We are fully justified, but sanctification is only achieved when we are fully walking in the Kingdom of God under His will. The question then is, do we walk in our sanctification? It means separating yourself from that which is evil. It is really all of God or nothing. We cannot have one foot in the world and one foot with God. There is no such thing as a little bit of sin. If you add one drop of contaminated water to a bucket of clean water, it all becomes contaminated. But if you add one drop of clean water to bucket of contaminated water, it is all still contaminated. We are called by Christ to abstain from any appearance of evil. We must confess our sins and then turn from them. We can do this only through the power of the Holy Spirit. We are sanctified through the blood of Christ by His power. When you are tempted with sin, claim your sanctification and rebuke the enemy by the power of the Holy Spirit in you!

Have a God Day!
