Jesus Has Fully Paid It All

In the Scriptures, remembering that Jesus fully paid the ransom price for our liberation from sin motivates…

  • The heavenly host to worship…
  • All church leaders to discharge faithfully their ministry…
  • And all believers to a lifestyle of personal purity.

“Don’t you know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit

Who is in you, whom you have received from God?

You are not your own; you were bought at a price.

Therefore, honor God with your body” (1 Corinthians 6:19-20).

Our bodies “belong to God three times over,

By creation, redemption, and indwelling.

How then, since it does not belong to us, can we misuse it?

Bought by Christ, we have no business

To become the slaves of anybody or anything else.

Once we were the slaves of sin; now we are the slaves of Christ,

And his service is true freedom.”

—John Stott, The Cross of Christ, pp.181-182
