1 Corinthians 6:12-20
“… you are not your own, for you were bought with a price…” vs. 19-20
And what a high price that was. God purchased your life. Saved it really from an eternity apart from Him. When no one else was going to do it, God did by sending His Son. This is the Gospel!
Because He saved us, shouldn’t we want to live the rest of our life wanting to praise, thank, and worship Him? Our sin nature fights against this everyday. But… we have a greater strength in us.
God didn’t just purchase our lives and then leave us.. He gave us part of Himself, the Holy Spirit as a helper, an always present companion and faithful reminder of truth.
The ESV says “we are members of Christ” in verse 15. The NLT words it as “your bodies are actually parts of Christ.”
Part of His family but even more, we are His hands and feet. Where we go, He goes with us. What we do, we are reflecting Christ. What kind of image of our great God are we giving to people?
“Therefore, glorify God with your body… with your life.”
“Honor God with your body.”
Gods given us what we need to accomplish what He’s called us to do.
