I Corinthians 7: 22-24

For he who was a slave when he was called by the Lord is the Lord’s freedman; similarly, he who was a free man when he was called is Christ’s slave. You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of men. Brothers, each man, as responsible to God, should remain in the situation God called him to.

When Christ paid the price for our sins, He, in effect, purchased our lives. He paid the “bride price” for us. We embrace Him as Saviour, and we belong to Him. We are redeemed. Bought from the clutches of fear, resentment, immorality, and the empty, tempting pleasures of a world without God. After experiencing the freedom of a redeemed Christian life, why would we trade it for slavery to the things of the world?
