You Belong To Christ


When I was younger, people at church would often quote 1 Corinthians 6:19 to me and others. It says, “Don’t you know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and who was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourselves but to God” (GNT). You don’t hear many people quoting this one these days, but it’s still true and should guide our decisions. When you gave your heart to Christ, you surrendered your rights to your life and your body. You were purchased at a high cost. It’s time to quit living and thinking of yourself as clearance goods. Also, because you now belong to Christ, you are entitled to many promises.

Here are some Bible verses on the promises of belonging to Christ.

1. This means that anyone who belongs to Christ has become a new person. The old life is gone; a new life has begun!

2 Corinthians 5:17 NLT

2. So now there is no condemnation for those who belong to Christ Jesus.

Romans 8:1 NLT

3. May peace be with all of you who belong to Christ.

1 Peter 5:14 GNT

4. Just as everyone dies because we all belong to Adam, everyone who belongs to Christ will be given new life.

1 Corinthians 15:22 NLT

5. And because you belong to him, the power of the life-giving Spirit has freed you from the power of sin that leads to death.

Romans 8:2 NLT

  1. Amen, Chris. Thank you, brother! Taylor Swift has an early hit called 🎵 “You Belong With Me”🎵. God says the same to us. I always appreciate your excellent scripture references as well. Blessings!
