1 Corinthians 6:20 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

1 Corinthians 6:20

For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.

I love this verse for so many reasons, and it is quickly becoming an anchor verse for me. You can tell the worth of something by the amount the person buying it is willing to pay. And God was willing to pay with His Son’s life for ours, so to me, that says we are very valuable to Him.

I have struggled throughout my life with acceptance/rejection issues, and this verse reminds me that the way I see me and the way God sees me can be polar opposites. Where I see a prideful, selfish, sinful man bent on doing things his own way, God sees a lost sheep and is willing to send His Son to take my place and restore me to Him!

I was praying this morning, and I saw me and Jesus standing next to each other, and I felt like God was saying one of us had to go pay the price for my sins. As I went to leave, Jesus stopped me and went instead! Thank you, Jesus!!!! 

Remember that Jesus went obediently, willingly, lovingly, and humbly to the cross for you and me!!! The world will tell you you’re not worthy, but God said you were worthy of the royal  Blood of His Son, and it’s not because of who you are or what you can do for Him, but it’s all about who He is and His love for you!!! Don’t let this fallen world define you, but rather be defined by the Risen King !!!

Be a warrior, Be accountable, Be honest, Be fully surrendered, and Be more like Jesus!!!

I love you all, God bless, and let’s give glory to God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit!!!
