Glorify God in your body (1 Cor. 6:20)

“You were bought

With a price.

Therefore,

Glorify God

In your body.”

ἠγοράσθητε γὰρ τιμῆς· δοξάσατε δὴ τὸν Θεὸν ἐν τῷ σώματι ὑμῶν.

Paul said that you were bought with a price (ἠγοράσθητε γὰρ τιμῆς).  “Therefore, glorify God (δοξάσατε δὴ τὸν Θεὸν) in your body (ἐν τῷ σώματι ὑμῶν).”  Paul reminded these Corinthians that they had been purchased with a steep price, the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.  Jesus had paid for them with his life.  Thus, they had to glorify and praise God with their body.  They should not dishonor their valuable bodies that God has already paid for them with Jesus Christ.  Do you glorify God?
