Devo Law or Grace Part 3
1 Corinthians 6:7-11 (NIV)
7 The very fact that you have lawsuits among you means you have been completely defeated already. Why not rather be wronged? Why not rather be cheated? 8 Instead, you yourselves cheat and do wrong, and you do this to your brothers and sisters. 9 Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men 10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And 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.
Keep in mind this was written to instruct the church not the world. Paul says that if we live in this way we will not inherit the Kingdom. We take ourselves out from under grace and place ourselves back under the law. We can’t continue to live in blatant open rebellion toward God by living knowingly in sin. Shall I spit on the cross of Jesus. Never. Paul says we cannot use grace as a license to sin. It gives us the freedom not to sin not to live in sin.
