All the way through the Bible, immorality is listed along with murder and idolatry. In the Old Testament God demanded the death penalty for this sin. In 1 Corinthians 6 the Bible says that no immoral person can inherit the kingdom of God. There are hundreds of passages that indicate the wrath of God is being stored up against those who commit such sins.
What a horrible condemnation this is, and yet this is the Scripture.
But to the desperate soul, fully aware of all his or her sin and failure, there is joyful assurance: “There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus” (Romans 8:1).
Dearest Lord, I will never be able to thank You enough for the grace, mercy and forgiveness that You have made available to me through Jesus. Thank You for sending Him as my deliverer. Please help me to trust and follow You more. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.
