1 Corinthians 6:20
For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.
We belong to God by both creation and redemption, and this verse has the second view in mind. His ownership of us dates back to Calvary, when we were bought with a price. God thought that we were of such value that He was willing to pay for us with the price of His own precious blood.
