Not our own

Psalm 24:1 KJV — A Psalm of David. The earth is the LORD’S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

How would life look different if each of us lived in this truth?

Because everything belongs to God.

This is His world.

We are His creation.

All we have, all anyone has, belongs to God.

He is the One who created mankind’s intellect.

He is the reason we live and breathe.

Genesis 2:7 KJV — And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.

But our pride, our sin, our selfishness refuses this truth throughout the generations, beginning with Cain.

Thus God, in His mercy and great love, choose to die to redeem us to Himself.

For both the sinner and the saved are God’s creation, fashioned in the womb by God.

Let us remember, especially those of us who follow Christ, we are not our own.

1 Corinthians 6:20 KJV — For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.

Dear Lord Jesus,

Thank You for Your Word. Thank You for purchasing us at such an incredibly high price. Lord, thank You for Your love. Lord, please help me to live this truth each day. Lord, I want to see myself and others as Your creation. I want to understand that nothing “belongs to me”, not even myself. Lord, thank You for Your mercy and truth. Please help me to live in it today.
