1 Cor 6:20.
For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.
God paid a significant price to redeem you from sin and death. The word redeemed means to buy back. You see although the gift of salvation was free to you, it actually came at a price to God. His Son Jesus was sacrificed for our sake. Jesus took the human form of man, carried all of humanity’s sins, sicknesses, poverty, etc. and was separated from God for 3 days. Even though He did not sin, He had to take on humanity’s sin in order to be in a position to die in humanity’s place.
Friend now you are joined with Christ and seated in heavenly places with Him. There is no longer any reason to live a defeated life. Every victory that is yours was already paid for. Jesus paid the price so that you can live the life that God created you for. You must be committed to glorifying God in your body and spirit. Let your actions reflect God. Let people see the image of Christ in and through you. You are a light unto your generation.
