In this passage, Paul reminds Christians of their identity in Christ by faith. He encourages the believers to work out trivial cases among themselves by remind them that they are saints in Christ. If you see who you are in Christ, you will not need to work out trivial cases by unbelieving lawyers. Who we are in Christ must determine how we relate to others and how we work out situations. Paul then reminds them that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God. No one is good but God alone and all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. We cannot make ourselves righteous. Our actions can become our identities. Paul makes a list of the unrighteous, and says that such were some of them, but in Christ, they are not that way anymore. Your sin no longer defines you. Our sins have been washed away and we are new creations in Christ. In Christ, we are free from the power and guilt of sin, and sin no longer has dominion over us. The sins of your past no longer define who you are. You are washed by the regenerating power of the Holy Spirit. You are sanctified and purified, separated from profane things and dedicated to God. You are justified so the righteousness of Christ is credited to you who believe. It doesnâ€™t matter who you were; through faith and repentance, you are justified and have a new identity. Paul continues and brings together our identity and sanctification. He explains how it matters how we use our bodies. They are for the Lord, and the Lord for your bodies. You are set apart for the Lord. You body is now joined in union with Christ. You were bought with the precious blood of Christ and you now belong to God. Remember who you are in Christ!
