Belong To God? You Were Bought With A Price!
Do you belong to God? You were bought with a price! Yeah – it’s true! The Bible says in 1 Cor. 6:19-20:
What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.”
When we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior, our bodies are not our own anymore. Our lives are not our own anymore – He is Lord over all of us – body, mind, and soul!
I’m getting reminded of this verse as I was going over my blood test results before. Turns out my cholesterol is sky-high, and I have to get it together, otherwise it could be a lot worse. I was thinking that my own bad habits contributed to this, and I was also thinking that I’m a child of God and shouldn’t be this way!
You guys must know that when we give our lives to Jesus, He is in control. Our daily life, our words, our actions – even what we eat. Remember this – we are the temple of His Holy Spirit. And let’s face it – how can we do ANYTHING for Him if we are overweight, flabby, or sick (I’m including myself in this, believe me)? We can’t!
WE BELONG TO JESUS TODAY!
