Memorable Scripture: You belong to God

1 Corinthians 6:19-20
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.

Again a reminder that your body is a temple, and your temple is occupied by the Holy Spirit.
As a born-again believer you know longer belong to yourself.
Self is thrown out.
Jesus said to deny yourself, so forget about self!
You are bought.
You are purchased.
The price was the blood of Christ to redeem you from sin.
In the previous verses Paul says if you commit sexual immorality then you sin against your own body. He uses an example if you join yourself to a prostitute, you become one in body with her/him.
Likewise, when you accept Jesus as savior you become one with Him. This is the Holy Spirit living in you.
Sexual immorality is totally anti-Christ. It is a sin that affects the mind, the body, and the family.
It destroys lives.
Christ died to redeem you from this major sin.
Glorify God in your spirit and body, which now belong to Him!
