“What?  know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?  For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.”
1 Corinthians 6:19,20 KJV

The newspaper reports a house was sold for millions of dollars.  However, the most expensive price that has ever been paid for anything was the redeeming cleansing blood of Jesus that He shed for our sins on the cross so we can be saved and go to Heaven.  Jesus shed His own blood for you and for me.

Marvin P. Dalton wrote the beautiful inspiring hymn “Oh What A Savior”.  “O what a Savior, O hallelujah!  His heart was broken on Calvary, His hands were nail scarred, His side was riven, He gave His life-blood for even me.”  Jesus gave His own blood for you so you can have your sins forgiven and go to Heaven. 

What an amazing love Jesus has for us.  Not only was the heart of Jesus broken when He died, God’s heart was also broken because His Son had been beaten beyond recognition, spat on, cursed and rejected.  Jesus had taken our sins on Himself and God can’t look on sin so He had to turn away from Jesus.

Yes, Jesus’ heart was broken on Calvary and we are still hurting Him and breaking His heart when we don’t allow Him to be first in our heart, in our life, in our time and in everything that we do.  Jesus has the right to be first in our life because He died on the cross for our sins.  What a Saviour, this Jesus of Nazareth!
