Our great privilege and our great responsibility

“Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s” (1 Corinthians 6:19-20).

These verses speak to us of our great privilege and our great responsibility. We have been called by grace – and we have been called to holiness. What a great privilege is ours – the Holy Spirit has been given to us. He lives in our hearts. What a great responsibility is ours! We are to “be filled with the Spirit” (Ephesians 5:18), and we are to “walk in the Spirit” (Galatians 5:16) – and may we never forget this: “you were bought at a price” – we have been “redeemed … with the precious blood of Christ” (1 Peter 1:18-19).
Here’s a song that reminds us of how much our Lord Jesus Christ has done for us. Listen, sing – and may the Lord bless you abundantly.
