Several years ago, I read that one of Babe Ruth's bats sold for $63,000. Now, you can buy a good bat for quite a bit less, so what makes this one different? The owner.
If you are a Christian, you are owned by Jesus Christ. That's why you have special value as a human being. You are the salt of the earth and the light of the world.
This is also a reason fellowship with other Christians is so important. They, too, are owned by Jesus.
In a letter emphasizing the community of Christ, Paul writes, “19 Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies”(I Cor. 6:19-20.) NIV
