πŸ‘‘ Washed, Sanctified And Justified

β€œAnd 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 Cor. 6:11).

The preceding verses of I Cor. 6 contain a long list of vile sins and vices into which men have fallen, and the Apostle adds:

β€œAndΒ suchΒ were some ofΒ you.” God’s Church is not made up of β€œgood people” who have never fallen into sin. It is rather made up of sinners, saved by grace, through the infinite payment made for sin by Christ on Calvary’s cross.

β€œAnd such wereΒ someΒ of you.” Had the Apostle included the more β€œrefined” sins, such as pride, self-righteousness, etc., he would have had to say: β€œAnd such wereΒ allΒ of you.”

Note further, however, that the Apostle says: β€œAnd suchΒ wereΒ some of you.” Thank God, he goes on to say of those who had been thus stained with sin: β€œBut 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.”

How beautiful these three phrases: β€œBut ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified”! The word β€œbut” appearing before each phrase indicates that each should be considered separately. Such vile creatures were some of you, β€œbut ye are washed,” cleansed from the sins that contaminated you. β€œBut ye are sanctified.” Having been cleansed you are now set apart as sacred for His glory. β€œBut ye are justified.” When God justifies us, who can condemn? source
