That is what some of you were. 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. 1 CORINTHIANS 6:11

What a powerful argument for receiving Christ as our personal Savior summed up in these words: "You are not the person you once were; so do not live as you once lived." That is essentially what Paul is saying.

In the preceding verses Paul describes the lifestyle of the ungodly and then adds this profound reminder: "That is what some of you were." If we have trusted in Christ for salvation, looking back on how much we have been forgiven is simply staggering. Knowing what we were makes us immensely thankful for what we now are.

And praise God for the next little word in the passage - one of the most important in Scripture - the word "but". That is what you once were, but... something has happened to change you. Paul says you were washed (your sins no longer mark you), sanctified (made holy) and justified (declared blameless). This radical change surpasses any kind of cleaning we ourselves could accomplish. Christ enters our hearts and begins our life anew!

That radical change took place in my life over 17 years ago when I received Christ as my Savior. For the first time in my life I had this intense desire in my heart. He must increase, but I must decrease. John 3:30. I am not the person I once was and I am truly thankful to Him for it.

INSIGHT: How we live is a reflection of Who we believe in. Let Christ in and He will change your life. Your conscience will come alive. Your self-centered nature will slip away. You will now have the power to make the right choices that will lead to life...that is life eternal with your Creator.

Dear Lord God, Thank you for giving me the gift of salvation through Your Son, Jesus Christ. I pray that others will realize that He is just what they need in their lives as well. In Jesus" Name, Amen.

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
