Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honour God with your bodies.
– 1 Corinthians 6:19-20
I am property!
It’s a weird concept to grapple with in a world where I am taught not to care what others think and to follow my heart’s desire because I belong to no one except myself.
Paul challenges our tendency towards self-absorption and narcissism. He constantly warns us against putting misplaced value upon ourselves.
God paid the highest price for me. Not because I’m worth it. Not because I earned it. But because He loves me so much.
I am His. And miraculously, undeservedly, that makes me precious in His sight. (Click to tweet)
I’m happy to belong to Him. How about you?
