1 Corinthians 6:20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.
Our Afrikaans Bible (1953) also uses the word duur- expensive to say that you are bought at a great price. But I think this mostly goes over most of our heads. We have no idea what this is actually saying. If we do understand the significance of this words, it would change our lives forever!
Since my children were born we have read the Bible together every morning for over an hour or more. We usually end up loving it so much that we mostly get lost in time! The more we learn the more we WANT to learn! While reading the Bible with them the other day, God spoke to me through this verse, especially the part that says: you are bought with a price.
He asked me: Do you really KNOW just how valuable and precious you really are?
There is NOBODY in the entire universe that is rich enough to pay a high enough price to buy you from God's hand. That's right! It is not even possible for anybody else because there is nobody rich enough to do it.
It is because THE HIGHEST PRICE IN THE ENTIRE UNIVERSE is paid to free you from hell and sin.
