1 Corinthians 6:20-You were bought with a price. Therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.
The Apostle Paul reminds us that we were bought with a price. Yes, it cost God something to redeem us.
"We were bought" means that our redemption was not free for God, even thought it was freely given to us.
The price that was paid to redeem us, set us free from the wrath and penalty of sin and reconcile us back to God was the cost of "Blood" which was shed by God's own Son, Jesus Christ at Calvary while we were yet sinners who were separated from God because of our sins.
Hebrews 9:12-14 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. 13 For if the blood of bulls and of goats, and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean, sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh: 14 How much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, purge your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?
The Apostle Paul describes himself this way in Romans 1:1-Paul, a slave of Christ Jesus, chosen by God to be an apostle and sent out to preach His Good News.
If you have been redeemed by the blood of Christ, here is what scripture says concerning you in 1 Corinthians 6:19- Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God, and that you are not your own?
Have you accepted God's payment for your redemption? If not, I exhort or plea with you on today to make Jesus your choice. He is calling you to trust Him with your future and your life now and in eternity.
Remember, you and I are not our own for we were bought with a price!
Our redemption was paid with blood, therefore, we rejoice and be glad in it.
God bless and I love you all.
