Two Ways You Belong to God
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? For you were bought at a price; therefore, glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
There’s a familiar story about a little fellow who lost a little red sailboat he had made. It sailed away from him across the pond. Later, he saw it in a second-hand store, and the proprietor made him buy it back. He bought it back, and as he carried the little sailboat out of that second-hand store, he hugged it to his chest and said, “Little sailboat, you’re mine. You’re twice mine. You’re mine because I made you, and you’re mine because I bought you back.”
Not only did God create you, then He redeemed you. God bought you with His blood. And God says, “Christian, you’re mine. You are twice mine. You’re mine because I created you, and you’re mine because I redeemed you.”
We must live out this verse, today and every day: “You are not your own. You are bought with a price. Therefore, glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.”
