You are not your own, you were bought with a price. When the ransom was due, I paid it in full. The wages of your sin was death, but Christ stepped in as a kinsman redeemer, to make payment in full.
He paid it all and you operate in freedom, as a result. You are free and the bondage has been relinquished. Remove the limitations of what you cannot do and cannot have, you are no longer a slave.
This means your freedom in Christ is more than a fringe benefit. It is birthright and MY due benevolence, as your Lord. The birthright is the beginning, the first fruits, the foundation, the cornerstone and the genesis.
In all its power, freedom is not the prize in the race, it is merely the starting block, given to every believer. Through freedom you are capable of achieving the real prize, to reign in Eternal Glory, with ME.
1 Corinthian 7:22-23
And remember, if you were a slave when the Lord called you, you are now free in the Lord. And if you were free when the Lord called you, you are now a slave of Christ. God paid a high price for you, so don’t be enslaved by the world.
