The Thought Life
Ps 103:1 Bless the LORD, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name.
1 Cor 6:20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
Bought: Greek agorazo; to go to the slave market, i.e. (by implication) to purchase; specially to redeem – to buy a slave in order to set free, redeem.
Glorify: from the Greek word doxazo (dox-ad’-zo) to glorify, honor. This verb calls for a commitment to a decisive and effective choice. A command to “do this!” Make this happen! (Don’t just try!) Begin now!
Bless the LORD, O my soul, and all that is within me. Bless His holy name. I am redeemed. No longer a slave to sin, I belong to God. Therefore, I choose to glorify God in my spirit and in my body.
