I am not my own
Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body. – I Corinthians 6:19-20
The Christian life is a life of sacrifice. With Christ being our example He sacrificed His life at a young age so we could be saved. It’s only fitting for us to do the same for Him realizing He gave the ultimate sacrifice for us.
When I pray, I specifically ask the Lord for His will to be done in my life. I am surrendering my will ( my wants, my plans and my desire) for His will for my life. I’m relinquishing my rights for God to have His will and His way in my life.
