1 Corinthians 6:19 Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own;

We like knowing we’re God’s property when it comes down to protection and blessings, but God’s property has another side. When we say we’re God’s property, we’re saying we don’t belong to ourselves anymore. We can’t do any and everything we want to do. We have to seek His approval.

Last year, we may have gotten drunk for our birthday, but knowing we’re God’s property, we don’t want to abuse His property with excessive alcohol. We may have been working long hours with little sleep to get an extra paycheck, but we don’t want to deprive His property of sleep. When we worry about something instead of giving it to Him, we’re mentally abusing His property.

Every born-again believer is the property of God. Be sure you’re doing whatever He tells you to do with His property.
