I Was Bought With a Price


This past week has been one of reflection and thanks. The images from Passion of the Christ are still fresh in my mind as I reflect.

  • You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore, honor God with your body. (I Corinthians 19b-20)
  • You were bought with a price, do not become slaves of men. (I Corinthians 7: 23)
  • But there will also…be false teachers among you. They will cleverly teach their destructive heresies about God and even turn against their Master who bought them.

I am not my own. God has purchased me. Therefore, my obedience to Him and His commands is imperative to me attaining any kind of freedom. Being under God’s command is better than making my own choices, and I am thankful that I have someone who knows what He’s doing looking out for me!
I had a great day today. Josh’s folks will be boarding a plane back to MN soon. I’ll miss them greatly, but I really enjoyed them being here. They were such amazing servants to Josh and me that I only hope I can reflect some of that back to others. We almost have our whole house unpacked. We have pictures hung. We just have maybe a couple of afternoons worth of stuff to finish. Our move will culminate to our garage sale on Saturday!
