1 Corinthians 6:9-11 (NET)
Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived! The sexually immoral, idolaters, adulterers, passive homosexual partners, practicing homosexuals,
thieves, the greedy, drunkards, the verbally abusive, and swindlers will not inherit the kingdom of God. Some of you once lived this way. 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.
When Amaka accepted the Lord Jesus, she knew it was time for her to move out of her boyfriend’s house and end the ungodly relationship. But because her boyfriend was rich and was the one who paid most of her bills, she found it very difficult to leave him.
Three weeks had passed and she was still living with him. She started deceiving herself and telling herself that the way she lived her life didn’t matter, that all that mattered was her faith (She didn’t realize that the two could not be separated).
But one night, she slept and dreamt that her filthy rags were changed into pure white clean clothes. But she went and sat down back into the mud from where she was raised. It was no ordinary dream.
The next morning, she packed her things and left her boyfriend’s house. She did this because she realized that she had been washed and cleansed, and continuing in sin was going to get her back into the bondage of the devil.
It is the deception of the devil that makes a believer think that he can continue in his sins and inherit the kingdom of God. Jesus says “Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter into the kingdom of heaven–only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven”(Matt 7:21).
Go into today remembering that as a person sanctified, even if you fall, you get cleansed and do not take your place in sin.
Ask the Lord to send eye-opening encounters and revelations to his children who may be going astray.
