1 Corinthians 6:19 – Ye Are Not Your Own

1 Corinthians 6:19
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.
Romans 6:6
6
Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that we should no longer serve sin.

Ephesians 2:2-3
2
Wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience:
3 Among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others.

-Many think that by not accepting the Lord, they are instead choosing to go their “own way”.  The saddest irony is that we are never our own; we all belong to sin and are servants of Satan- “the god of this world“. (2 Corinthians 4:4)  To choose “freedom” from God is to in fact choose bondage to everything that is not of God.
