You Are God’s Property
One day Abraham Lincoln, the President of the United States of America was walking in the streets. He saw a young girl being sold as a slave and she was crying very bitterly. Lincoln’s heart was moved. He bought her from her master, took her to his home and said, “My dear, you may go. I set you free. Go and live your life.” The girl was shocked. She fell at his feet and said “Sir, are you really setting me free? If so, please set me free to serve you lifelong.” She became his trusted friend and served him with great love.
Beloved, this is how you were also under the bondage of the devil. Jesus Christ came into this world to set you free. How did He set you free? He shed His own precious blood and purchased you. This is what it means by 1 Corinthians 6:20, “You were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies.”
I thank You for redeeming my spirit, soul and body by Your precious blood. Thank You for this immense love. Help me to show through my all that You are more precious and worthy to be desired than anything. Give me more yearning for Your words and presence. Help me to honor You with my emotions, feelings and will-power. In Jesus’ name I pray,
