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 is God’s. I Corinthians 6:19‭-‬20 NKJV

Your redemption from sin and Satan’s captivity was at a cost. God had to lay down the life of His one and only Son, Jesus Christ in exchange for your own life. Jesus suffered and was afflicted that you may be free, He was stripped naked that you may be clothed with God’s righteousness, He was rejected so that you may be accepted and adopted into the family of God, He bled at the cross so that you may be blessed, He died that you may live both now and forever and on the third day He defeated death by His resurrection so that you may be freed from the power of death and live in victory forever.

All these were done so that you may become God’s treasured possession, for renown, praise, and glory.

This same Jesus who came to redeem you at first is coming back again to take you into His eternal Kingdom prepared for you and other saints. How prepared and ready are you to meet Him if He stepped out of heaven right now to take you home? What fruit of your life do you have to present to Him?

Get ready, therefore, for the Lord Jesus is coming at the very hour you do not expect. Now that you are still alive in the body, offer your body to Him as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God. This is the only reasonable service you can render to Him as a token of your appreciation for His love and in preparation to live with Him forever when you depart from this sinful world. Good morning and do have a blessed Sunday.

Your brother,
