I Am Not My Own



1 Corinthians 6: 19 and 20 – “You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore, honor God with your body.”

Jesus paid the ultimate price for us when he died on the cross in our place. He owns us, therefore, when we are faced with a compromising decision we should always think twice, count to 10, run or whatever else and stop before we do something that is not holy. If Jesus was viewable with your human eye would you do something to bring tears to his eyes? I do this enough when I sin without thinking.

Listen to your heart when the beat quickens or the palms of your hands become are suddenly moist. This is actually the Holy Spirit telling you to beware of what is about to happen. When you honor the Holy Spirit you are in turn honoring God.

Dear Lord – Thank You, thank you for sending your Son to die on the cross in my place. I am so undeserving of your grace and love. I know there is no way I will ever be able to out-give what Jesus did for me. I love you Lord.
