You Were - Washed

Chris Williams
Bobbie Nell kicked off the new series You Were, with the first being You Were Washed. The main verse 1 Corinthians 6: 9-11, most of my life 9-10 were taught and overhyped as a list of what to do and not do, and if I’m completely honest even 9 and 10 were cherry-picked and some of the list not mentioned or briefly skimmed over and the “major” ones hammered. The real emphasis should be on verse 11, "Such were some of you; but you were washed." Were washed, that’s past tense, meaning it has been DONE.
Pretty simple, but we like to make it complicated because religion and traditions have taught us we have to do something, but in reality Titus 3:5 says "He saved us, not on the basis of deeds which we have done in righteousness, but according to His mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewing by the Holy Spirit."
The next time you are tempted to put on those old dirty, rotten, smelly clothes, remember you don’t have to, you’ve been washed and there’s no reason to rinse and repeat, it’s DONE!!
