1 Cor. 3, 23

I.  

Ye are Christ’s.

(1)  All his.  The priceless purchase of his blood; he died for us all.

(2)  Altogether his.  Nothing about us we call ours but belongs to him.  Many have not found this out yet.

1.  Our hearts are his to love and adore him and to love nothing sinful.

2.  Our time is his, to be spent according only as he wills.  All our time ought to be useful in some way to him.

3.  Our money is his.  He made it and all things.  He needs and will use it for glorious purposes.

II.

None of these can be used by him save through us.  How great then is our responsibility.

We can use these things for him only as we use them for others.  He directs us so to act and will reward accordingly.  Service to humanity is the proof of consecration to God–for most of us the only possible proof.  Will we then recognize that we and our all belong to him?
