A friend, who had visited Israel, shared that their Jewish guide had shared insight with their group from the Hebrew scriptures. The lady told them that when things were mentioned in threes in the scriptures, it held a meaning of being bound, sealed, or confirmed. This verse in Paul’s letter to the Corinthians uses a threesome to help us see what He confirms in our lives when we choose to follow Jesus.
- Washed. Our sins are washed away by the flow of His blood on the cross in our place.
- Sanctified. We are set apart for His special use in building His kingdom and pointing others toward a personal relationship with Him.
- Justified. He pronounces us “not guilty” of our sins, because of the sacrifice He made for us on the cross.
Through this set of three actions, the Lord makes us new. He makes it possible for us to leave our past behind and walk forward renewed, restored, and refined.
