WEEKLY DEVOTIONAL: Bought With a Price

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

I love this verse and what this verse means. Think about this. Throughout life, many influences have said to youth and generations that we are worthless or that we have no value. And think about this, the devil goes through so much trouble to steal, kill and destroy. The devil tries to steal our joy and steal our value. If we allow him to steal our joy, then it will happen. However, the devil cannot steal our value because we have been BOUGHT with a PRICE!!!!! The price for our lives was paid by Jesus. What an awesome thing to realize what Jesus did!!! He went to the cross for our victory and freedom. 

If we look at Romans 6:23, the wages of sin is DEATH!!!!! Therefore, being sinners, we should be receiving the penalty of death. However, Jesus paid the price!!! We are free from this penalty. Jesus freed us by dying for us. Therefore, everything that has been assigned to us by our past can be removed. When we come to Christ, He can remove anything from the past by the blood. Jesus paid it all!!! He experienced every pain that we experience. Jesus was whipped and beaten for our transgressions. 
Isaiah 53:5 says "But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed."
The beatings and stripes that Jesus received was for our mistakes and to cover the price of our faults. THANK YOU JESUS because You paid it all!!!! 

This song is an awesome song!!! If you just listen to the words, THANK YOU JESUS is all that can come forth. Think about it. Jesus went to the cross with SELFLESS reasons. He died for people that did not exist at the time!!! Jesus having ALL POWER at His hand, He stayed on that cross and took those ridicules so that I can have life. What type of love is this??

This brings me to the last part of 1 Corinthians 6:20. Because you were bought with a price and your sins are taken care of, now is the time to glorify God. Give God the praise. Many times we forget about the cross and what Jesus really went through. Or some times we forget that God is the one that brought us through our situations. ALL the glory belongs to God!!! 

This next song is another awesome song!!! This song for me is my jam!!! This is the truth!!! Jesus, I will worship You forever. Because when things go wrong, you stayed on that cross. Whatever I have suffered in my life, you suffered more through your life. You did not have to go to the cross or have your own people ridicule you. You did not have endure the beatings, the spitting, the cross, or the trials that your own people put you through. But because You PAID the price for me, I will worship you FOREVER!!! 

While you listen to this song, I encourage you to listen to the lyrics. They are powerful. 

With nails in His hands
Nails in His feet
A crown of thorns on His head
Not a mumbling word and You stayed there
I won't forget what You gave up for me

And forever You're my Savior

Forever My Redeemer
Forever I'll remember the price that You paid
Forever You are Holy
Forever You are Worthy
Forever I'll sing Glory to Your Name!!

LOVE THIS SONG!!! I encourage you to NEVER stop thanking and giving God the glory for what He did on the cross!!! He is worthy of it all!!!!

Stay blessed and remember that YOU are BOUGHT with a PRICE!!! You are valuable!!!
