..and such were some of you
And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.
I Corinthians 6:11 KJV 1611
What wonderful words come from the Bible. This is one of my favorite verses. Truly, it is to all those who have found this true. By salvation in the shed blood of The Lord Jesus Christ.
WASHED: to remove dirt, stains; to purify, cleanse
SANCTIFIED: to make holy, purify
JUSTIFIED: to declare innocent, declare free, to prove right
Covered by the free pardon of sin by the grace of our Lord Jesus. Just as if "I"... had paid my price of sin. But, Yea...HE DID IT for me.
Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:
Whom God hath set forth to be a propitiation through faith in his blood, to declare his righteousness for the remissions of sins that are past, through the forbearance of God;
To declare, I say, at this time his righteousness: that he might be just, and the justifier of him which believeth in Jesus.
Romans 3:24-26 KJV 1611
What wonderful, glorious words of truth and comfort!
SUCH...were...some of you!
Not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to his mercy he saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and renewing of the Holy Ghost;
which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;
That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.
Titus 3:5-7 KJV 1611
THIS IS THE DAY....I thank the LORD my God...
I was lost...but am found...was blind, but now I see!!
I know the path to follow...I see the light of the world...is Jesus.
But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.
Hebrews 2:9 KJV 1611
