1 Corinthians 6:9-11
Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor the covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers, will inherit the kingdom of God. Such were some of you; but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God
Praise God forevermore for washing us in His precious blood and making us new creations in Christ!

New King James Version
Let All Things Praise the Lord
Praise God in His sanctuary;
Praise Him in His mighty firmament!
2 Praise Him for His mighty acts;
Praise Him according to His excellent greatness!
3 Praise Him with the sound of the trumpet;
Praise Him with the lute and harp!
4 Praise Him with the timbrel and dance;
Praise Him with stringed instruments and flutes!
5 Praise Him with loud cymbals;
Praise Him with clashing cymbals!
6 Let everything that has breath praise the Lord.
19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous,
But the Lord delivers him out of them all.

Be of good cheer, dearest friend,
When we trust in Christ,
our afflictions all will end.
His promise is ever true,
and meant for me and you,
Our God Who cannot lie
will deliver us in His time!
