ROR – You Belong To Him, Tuesday, May 19th, 2020, By Pastor Chris Oyakhilome PhD DSc DD.


For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s (1 Corinthians 6:20).

I love the story I heard many years ago of a Chinese brother. It’s a powerful expression of our consecration to the Lord and oneness with Him. The story goes that he was travelling on the same train as three gentlemen who wanted to play a card game that required a fourth person. So, they asked him, “Sir, would you mind joining us to play this game?” He replied, “Oh, I’m sorry. I would have joined you, but I’m not here with my hands.”

“You’re not here with your hands?” they chorused in bewilderment. “No, I’m not,” he affirmed. They looked at him closely; he seemed complete and his hands didn’t look like prostheses. “So, what about these hands here?” they queried. “They’re not mine,” he replied. Now they thought he was out of wits. Knowing their thoughts, he quickly spoke up and explained: “I’ve been bought with a price. I now belong to Jesus. These hands now belong to Him and I only use them for what He wants.” He then went ahead and explained the Gospel to them to receive Christ.

What a beautiful thought this is! What a mindset this brother had! This is what happens when you understand the significance of the salvation you’ve received from Christ. You recognize that you’re not your own; it’s no longer you that live, but Christ that lives through you. You belong to Him, and can only do the things that He approves; only those things that please Him. You glorify Him in your spirit, soul, and body, for they’re His. Hallelujah!


I’ve been crucified with Christ; it’s no longer I who live, but Christ lives in and through me. Therefore, I present my body as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable unto the Lord, which is my reasonable service. I glorify the Lord in my spirit, soul, and body, making them vents for His righteousness. Hallelujah!

Further Study:

Galatians 2:20
“I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”

1 Corinthians 6:19-20
“What? know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?
20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s.”

Confession For Today. May 19th, 2020

I walk in the reality of my divine inheritance in Christ because the Word of God is at work in me! I’m not just a hearer of the Word, I do the Word. God’s Spirit rests mightily upon me and blesses me in every way.


I am full of the joy of the Holy Ghost, and that joy gives me strength and vitality every day. I have in me the indestructible life! Daily, I walk in health, victory, prosperity, and strength because the Greater One lives in me! Every fiber of my being, every bone of my body, and every cell of my blood is inundated with divine energy! My life is not sustained by blood, but by the Spirit of God. That same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead dwells in me. He’s in my head! He’s in my hands! He’s in my legs! He’s all over me! It is impossible for my blood to be infected, because that same Spirit causes divine vitalization in my body, refreshing and rejuvenating me daily, in the mighty Name of Jesus Christ. Amen.


I enjoy my days in prosperity and abundance as I fulfil my destiny in Christ. My path is as the shining light that shines brighter and brighter unto the perfect day. I have the victory, in Christ and I’m more than a conqueror. I live triumphantly today and always, fulfilling God’s dream and bringing glory to His name. I’m a bundle of success, and the prosperity of God is in my spirit. I’m rich in gold and in all precious things. My life is fruitful and productive. I’m prospering and excelling in everything because the Lord is my delight, hallelujah!


Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for the visions of the great future that You have for me. My heart is flooded with light to see, comprehend, and apprehend my glorious destiny in Christ. I follow the leading of the Holy Spirit as He unveils His plans and strategies to me in executing the ideas You give me for success in life and ministry. Thank You for leading me in the path of Your righteousness, wisdom, and glory. I declare that I have the life of Christ and His calling on my life, therefore, I lead a life worthy of the calling with which I’ve been called. I have a holy and high calling; I am separated from the world unto Christ. I live in a way that is befitting of someone God has chosen to be His. I am one in whom Christ dwells; thus, I refuse to permit sin, sickness, failure or the works of the evil one in my life.

My life is for the glory of God. The participation in and sharing of my faith produces and promotes full recognition, appreciation, understanding, and precise knowledge of every good thing that is in me in Christ Jesus. I acknowledge the life of Christ in me and His call on my life. I am fit for what God has called me to be, and by His power, He fulfils every good purpose of mine and every act prompted by faith. By the power of the Holy Spirit, I fulfil my calling and walk in God’s prearranged path for my life. I am guided in wisdom to walk in God’s perfect will, to walk in health, strength, victory, and prosperity, living the transcendent life in Christ, and fulfilling God’s good pleasure, in Jesus’ Name. Amen. Hallelujah!
