"Do you not know that your body is the
temple of the Holy Spirit . . . and you are
not your own? For you were bought at a
price; therefore glorify God in your body
and in your spirit, which are God's" (1 Cor.
6:19, 20). At high cost we were purchased,
redeemed. We belong to God. But such was
mere reclaiming, for He made us; we have
belonged to Him from the beginning because
"In the beginning God created. . ." (Gen.
1:1). The Scriptures clearly state that "the
earth is the Lord's and all its fullness,
the world and those who dwell therein" (Ps.
At Creation God shared His possessions with
humanity, and He continues to be the true
owner of the world, its inhabitants, and its
goods (Ps. 24:1). At the cross He reclaimed
as His own that which man had surrendered to
Satan at the Fall (1 Cor. 6:19-20). He has
now appointed His people to serve as
stewards of His possessions.
