Bought With a Price

"For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body."
1 Corinthians 6:20

Paul admonishes the Corinthian church to keep their bodies pure, for the body of a Christian is the temple of the Holy Spirit. He is speaking here of sexual immorality, but since Christ lives within us  -- since our bodies belong to Him -- everything we do matters. If we are lazy. we are certainly not glorifying God. Jesus paid a precious price to redeem us, and our bodies are a part of that redemption. Whenever we make a decision about how to use them, we choose whether we will or will not honor Christ. His Holy Spirit lives within us, giving us the power over anything and everything that dishonors Him. "Your body was a willing horse when it was in the service of the devil, let it not be a sluggish hack now that it draws the chariot of Christ." -- Charles Spurgeon. 


  1. Well that hits home after fussing at the girls for throwing their clothes on the floor that we paid good money for! While I am so lacking in caring for those things that God paid the ultimate price for. Thanks for the reminder Nancy - and for seeing me from a thousand miles away!

    1. I appreciate your comments, Hope. God reminded me first. :-)
