Since we have been saved by grace and redeemed by Christ on the cross, simply put, you are not your own to do as you please any longer – you are bought with a price. God has saved us so that we would now no longer live unto ourselves, but that we would live unto the Savior who has redeemed us. God has made us a new creature; he’s given us a new nature and new desires for godliness and righteousness, and now we are live like God’s new creations to his glory.
