1 Corinthians 6:9-11

Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of
God? Do not be deceived; neithe fornicators, nor idolators, nor
adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nore thieves, nor the covetous, nor
drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sactified, but
you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our

What an AMAZING God we serve that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us (Rom. 5:8)!! I look at that list up there and think, "oh, I would never do those things!" but in my heart, I know that I am guilty of such sins. But, what an amazing knowledge we have as believers. What an amazing gift to know that we are washed. And not only washed, but sactified. And not only sactified, but justified!!

Go out and praise the Lord today!

Thanks for posting that Magen...It's so good to think about how I would never do those "bad" things...yet every sin counts the same in God's eyes and we are forgiven for all of them through Christ!

God is awesome! I am thankful that He has such mercy and compassion on us. It really boggles the mind to think about how much God loves us! Especially now that I have a kid myself, it makes me realize even more how much God loved us to send His Son to die...there is no way that I could let Hayley die to save the world, I just don't think I could do it.
