1 Corinthians 6:19-20 KJV
19 What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
I know we are in Galatians on our study, but this verse popped into my head this morning, and I don’t think I have ever posted any of my songs on this site. I always put them on my Psalmist blog. This chorus was given to me several years ago and it is very dear to my heart.
Who do you belong to? If you are your own, you follow your heart and your ways. You walk in your understanding and consider your wisdom. You want what is best for you and will strive to attain it no matter what. Me first is the operative slogan!
When you belong to Jesus, He takes the reigns. You trust in His mercy and grace. You do your best to follow after His word in everything. You give out mercy and prefer others over yourself. You love unconditionally and always encourage others, never complaining or putting others down. You walk in peace and joy no matter what is happening in your life.
To be honest, I am usually somewhere in between these two very different lives. But I have been bought with a price – I do belong to Him. I just need to act like it! Jesus said we cannot serve two masters, but a lot of the time I do. This song expresses my sincere desire to be all His – all the time.
(I am not the best singer or the best piano player. But I do my best and give Him the glory) I hope you enjoy this.
