“For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.”
King James Version (KJV)

yes I agree totally, also as Luke writes in Chapter 17
32 Remember Lot's wife.
33 Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.

I have been with The Lord for 56 years - He will
Never Leave You or forsaken You - iam
Proof of that - we are the ones that Leave him.
Because we take our eyes of Christ Jesus and Look
And Listen to the world. Read what Peter did in the
fishing boat in the middle of the strom when he called
to Jesus who was Walking on the WATER. WHEN YOU
TAKE YOUR EYES OFF CHRIST YOU FALL !!!

Paul now concludes his teaching on why it matters that Christians run away from sexual immorality. His final point, begun in the previous verse, is that Christian people do not belong to themselves. We have been purchased by God. We are free in the sense that we have been freed from the law of sin and death (Galatians 3:13), but we are not free in the sense that we are now self-owned and self-determined (1 Corinthians 6:12-13).
If we are truly in Christ, we are truly not our own. Our lives, including our bodies, belong to God. This gives Him the ultimate authority to tell us what to do and what not to do with our bodies.
It's important to notice something about this last argument against sexual immorality. It applies only to believers. Only those in Christ have been redeemed by His blood and brought from darkness to light (1 Corinthians 1:12-13). These words are not for those who remain in darkness. Paul is not commanding those outside the church, unbelievers, to live according to God's standards for sexual morality (1 Corinthians 5:12). Their sin is still sin, but one cannot expect them to recognize it as such (1 Corinthians 2:14).
Rather, it is those who belong to God-and not to themselves-who are commanded to glorify God with their bodies. In fact, only those in Christ have an opportunity to use their bodies to bring glory to God. In fact, that is now the purpose our bodies are designed to serve.

Do a good work and Glorify God in your actions as we are not our own but a creation unto Christ who paid the price that we may have Life Evermore.

I am no longer my own : I belong to God . I am His workmanship. I have been bought : The price that was paid for me cost God His best : That is Jesus Christ. I no longer have the right to do as I please for I must answer to my God of all. Therefore I will Glorify God in my body and in my spirit which are God 's
