“…ye are not your own… ye are bought with a price” – I Corinthians 6:19-20
Pardon the glaring omission of a flowery introduction, and let’s cut to it: if you’re not yours, you have no rights. That means that you don’t have the right to make your own decisions! It’s your responsibility to seek to know what your owner wants, and to allow Him to make the decisions. This applies to everything!
Here’s a simple example of how it affects me: when I want to stop and spend $1.29 for a cup of coffee, I have to discern whether that cup of coffee is God’s desire, or just mine. Sound extreme? It is.
But either I am bought with a price, and not my own, or I am my own, and I am not His. It’s one way or the other. I can’t serve two masters, and I can’t have two owners. It’s that simple, and that extreme.
What do you think- is this approach too radical? Is it going a little overboard? If not, where does it hit you?
