When we think about this topic we all first think of money right? Well that's not always the case.
In Mark 12, The Pharisees, (Government leaders), asked Jesus if it was right to pay taxes to Caesar.
Jesus said, "Bring me a denarius and let me look at it."
They brought the coin, and he asked them,
"Whose image is this? And whose inscription?"
"Caesar's," they replied.
Then Jesus said to them,
"Give to Caesar what is Caesar's and to God what is God's."
One may think this is about paying taxes and money. In one case that can be but tread what it says in
1 Corinthians 6:19
"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; you were bought at a price."
Go back to what Jesus said, "So give back to Caesar what is Caesar's, and to God what is God's." What is God's?
Well in 1 Corinthians it's your body, it's your soul. You are not your own and you have been bought with a huge price. That price is the blood Jesus shed on the cross for ALL people. Why? So we would be free from hell and be able to enter into Heaven. Without bloodshed, there is no forgiveness so Jesus became that sacrifice once and for all for past and future sins of ALL people regardless of who they are or how they turn out.
So this means that sin doesn't own you. Drugs do not own you, Alcohol doesn't own you, and Lust doesn't own you. Whatever the sin or struggle is, it does not own you!! Jesus paid the price so we can be free of all that.
Give to God what is God's
