I read this thought-provoking question recently, and it brought to mind a second question. Is this a “mind” fact and a “heart” fact? What price? – “But with the precious blood of Christ” (I Peter 1:19a). We all know, in our mind, what price Christ paid for our salvation, but has that fact reached our heart and produced the result found in I Corinthians 6:20? “For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.” We have been purchased with a great price; this should cause us to glorify God with our lives. Glorify God? How? Consider these verses from Titus.
“Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works” (Titus 2:10-14).
Glorify God – living soberly, righteously, and godly – zealous of good works. “Is your life worth what Christ paid for it?”
