“Everything is permissible for me.” The Corinthians were fond of this excuse to defend their wicked behavior, but Paul reminded them of the dignity and responsibility that was theirs as a result of their freedom being bought at a price--the blood of Christ. Alistair Begg walks us through the meaning and significance of redemption and restoration, explaining that holy living is not a means to earn salvation, but to glorify the God who saved and indwells us.
19Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, 20for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.
