In chapter 6, Paul tells us that we, the believers, will judge the world, and we will even judge the angels. Stop and let that sink in for a minute. We will judge the world, what a responsibility that Jesus has given us. In spite of that responsibility, we can’t even resolve our own conflicts with fellow believers. The first words out of our mouths is “I’ll just sue you”! Folks, to sue a fellow believer reflects your self-interest rather than the concern for the welfare of others or the glory of God. That attitude is far from Jesus’ examples and teachings on sacrificial love. So, why not just accept the injustice and demonstrate what love is. Read chapter 13 verses 4 through 8 if you need a reminder what love is.
In verse 9, Paul asked a question “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God.” Those who willingly sin or let’s say, live a sinful lifestyle have no share in the kingdom of God. Folks, our lives must reflect our faith we confess. Sin is deceptive, and we should not take it lightly as if sin is somehow acceptable. Continuing in unrepentantive sin indicates a heart that has not been renewed by the Holy Spirit and you will not inherit the kingdom of God.
