God Says I’m Valuable

In summary of 1 Corinthians 7:23 it says, "God paid a high price for you, so don’t be enslaved by the world."

Bottom line:
God paid a high price for you; so do not become slaves of others or the world.

What this means to me:

God paid a very high price to bring me back into a right relationship with him.  It would be a shame to let myself be subject/slave to the world or others.  There are are two things that determine value in life: One is what someone is willing to pay for it and the second is who owned it in the past.  As I reflect on these things, I can see that God has placed a high value on me, especially as it relates to what he paid to get me back.  I am something that he had, and due to my actions, I was lost.  The Bible reminds me that "You have been bought and paid for by Christ, so you belong to him - be free now from all these earthly prides and fears" (1 Corinthians 7:23 LB).  Today, since I belong to Him, I focus on not letting myself be enticed or entangled by the worlds values or by others.  I will remind myself that my creator places a high value on me.
