"...Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's." - Luke 20 V25

"For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God's." - 1 Corinthians 6 V20

When the question of paying taxes to Caesar came up, the answer of Jesus was simple, you pay what you owe to Caesar and pay to God the things that are God's. The question actually ended there but if they had asked Jesus what is God's then the answer would be that our body and spirit belongs to God. In fact God owns everything and He has appointed us to be the stewards of His creation. Jesus Christ paid the price and He bought us by His own blood. We are no more captives to sin, but in our body and spirit we should bring glory to God. Let us serve God faithfully because we belong. Praise God!

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ

Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
