Have you ever heard someone say something like this? “Well, it’s my life
and I will do what I please!”? If so, that person is a thief. His life
is not his own because God created Him and He should belong. And if he
professes to be a Christian, he is doubly a thief because He claims
Christ has bought him with His own blood! Are you living today as not
you own but as God’s, as Christs? Learn from today’s attached devotional
and be an honest person. God bless you!
Because of Calvary,
I Corinthians 6:19-20 (ESV)
19 Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, 20 for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.
