Ownership Our body ~ Temple of Holy Spirit Temple ~ Dwelling place of deity Our body is a suitable dwelling place for the Spirit when we obey the gospel.
Ownership you are not your own Ransomed by sacred blood Devote our body to the glory of his name
7. For none of us lives to himself, and no one dies to himself. 8. For if we live, we live to the Lord; and if we die, we die to the Lord. Therefore, whether we live or die, we are the Lord's. Rom. 14:7-8
Price For you are bought with a price Blood of Christ Acts 20:28 - purchased with his own blood Rev. 5:9 - redeemed by blood
Price 1 Peter 1:18-19 Precious blood 1 Peter 2:24 - bore our sins in his own body
7. For he who has died has been freed from sin. 8. Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him, 9. knowing that Christ, having been raised from the dead, dies no more. Death no longer has dominion over Him.
10. For the death that He died, He died to sin once for all; but the life that He lives, He lives to God. 11. Likewise you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to God in Christ Jesus our Lord.
