You are not your own…You’ve been bought with a high Price

 18 Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body.

19 Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;

20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.

Paul spent most of this chapter devoted to the importance of fleeing from sexual immorality – a sin which is violent destroying young people all over the world. So many people believe they can do whatever they want with their body because it’s their own. Satan has tricked young people into defiling their bodies for a fleeting moment of pleasure and self-satisfaction. Young people have become ignorant to the fact that they have been bought by a high price – that price is the precious blood of Jesus Christ.

Listen to these words of Nate Saint written over 50 years ago:

                             ” If God didn’t hold back His only Son, but gave Him up to pay the price for our sin and failure, then how can we Christians hold back our lives – the lives he really owns??”

The world is dying for a Savior, yet so many Christians go about living “business as usual” lives, never walking in the High calling of the Lord Almighty. It’s time the Western Church begins to live out it’s destiny and step into the reality that when suffering and persecution increases – sinning decreases! The world can do nothing to a Christian who has no fear of man. Jesus never said it would be easy!

Jesus…my life for you!
