20 We are not Our Own Romans 1:6 You also are among them, called to belong to Jesus Christ.

21 Even if we are not our own, Christ understands You belong to Christ, and Christ belongs to God.  1 Corinthians 3:23

22 Not “Our Will” … Now those who belong to Christ have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.  Galatians 5:24

23 The Apostrophe For the one who was a slave when called to faith in the Lord is the Lord’s freed person; similarly, the one who was free when called is Christ’s slave.  1 Corinthians 7:22

24 We Belong to and Represent Him We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors as though God were making his appeal through us.  2 Corinthinans 5:20

25 My situation is not important… For Christ’s sake, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.  2 Corinthians 12:9-11
