You Belong to Jesus: Get Right and Get Rest [Podcast]
If you are a Christian, you are not your own! You belong to Jesus!
The Church in Corinth had a genuine experience with God, but they had allowed the influence of the world to creep in. In Bible times, Corinth was known as Sin City. There was even a temple there with prostitutes and people would go to Corinth for a sex vacation.
The problem was that Corinth was influencing the church more than the church was influencing Corinth. So, the apostle Paul, who had founded the church had to remind them, “You belong to Jesus!”
“What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.” 1 Corinthians 6:19, 20, KJV.

And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by his own power. Know ye not that your bodies are the members of Christ? shall I then take the members of Christ, and make them the members of an harlot? God forbid. What? know ye not that he which is joined to an harlot is one body? for two, saith he, shall be one flesh. But he that is joined unto the Lord is one spirit. Flee fornication. Every sin that a man doeth is without the body; but he that committeth fornication sinneth against his own body. What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of G
