Monday, 3/22/10 – Joshua 12-14; 1 Corinthians 7 – “BOUGHT WITH A PRICE”

S – 1 Corinthians 7:23 – “You were bought with a price [purchased with a preciousness and paid for by Christ]; then do not yield yourselves up to become [in your own estimation] slaves to men [but consider yourselves slaves to Christ].” [Amplified Bible]

O – Paul is saying that as a result of being purchased by the blood of Christ, we should esteem ourselves as servants of God, not to men. As a result of Christ's sacrifice,it is in our service and obedience to Christ that we find true freedom. Our true Master is Christ and Christ alone.

A – We have been redeemed out of our spiritual slavery to sin, to the law and to unrighteousness. It is the price paid that should draw us toward living a life after the heart of God. When we live our lives from that truth, it should prompt love-driven obedience.

P – Lord we are thankful that we have been bought by Your precious blood. It cost you everything for our freedom. Let us therefore walk worthy of Your sacrifice, Your love and Your grace.
