YOU WERE BOUGHT AT A PRICE!
For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s (1 Corinthians 6:20).
Every Christian is expected to know the fact that he had been bought at a price. God bought you over to Himself using the blood of His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ. In fact, the greatest exchange by barter took place through God’s love to mankind. The Bible says in the opening text that you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s. A Christian should know the fact that the reason why he was bought at a price is for him to live his life to the glory of God. Your body, soul and spirit do not belong to you any longer.
God bought you over to Himself at a price; and that price is the precious blood of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ took your condemned life upon Himself and gave you His eternal life of God. Therefore, the life you are living now does not belong to you. That is why the Bible says in 1 Corinthians 7:23, “You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of men.” By this, every Christian automatically becomes a slave to God to live righteously forever. A Christian should never make himself a slave of sin and Satan.
The death of Jesus Christ on the cross gave you eternal life of God. Your condemned life was crucified with Jesus Christ on the cross. You have now received the resurrected life of God through His Name. That is the reason why the Bible says in 2 Corinthians 5:15, “And He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.” Therefore, every Christian should take note of the fact that Jesus Christ died and rose again for him to live victoriously over the powers of death and Satan forever.
Daily Tip: You had been bought at a price through Jesus Christ’s blood; therefore, glorify God in your body, soul and spirit forever. Shalom!
Golden Text: Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? (1 Corinthians 6:19).
