These are great words; but if they were not so great they would here be out of place. Men are given to boast of their possessions; but the Christian's boast is in this respect larger and grander than any man's beside. Men are wont to glory in belonging to some select society, some great nation, some illustrious king; but the Christian glories in belonging to a greater than the greatest who owes his honour to this world. "All things" are his; and he is "Christ's."

I. OUR PROPERTY IN ALL THINGS. To Christians it may be said - it was said by the inspired apostle:

1. All ministries are yours; the dead and the living, the speaking and the writing, the official and the unrecognized.

(1) The ministry of doctrine and of conversion, such as that of Paul, who planted.

(2) The ministry of eloquence and of edification, such as that of Apollos, who watered.

(3) The ministry of morality and zeal, such as that of Cephas. Each has his gift, and the Church is not for the ministry, but the ministry for the Church.

2. All circumstances are yours.

(1) The world, which is ours by the gift of God and by the redemption of Christ.

(2) Life is yours, in its opportunities and its manifold blessings.

(3) Death is yours - not your master, but your servant and your friend.

3. All times are yours.

(1) The present, in enjoyment, which is more the Christian's than it is the worldling's.

(2) The future, in reversion, which has for him brightness, glory, and joy. The future can deprive the Christian of no real good; it must bring him advantages unnumbered.

II. CHRIST'S PROPERTY IN US. To Christians it may be said, "Ye are Christ's:"

1. By the purchase of his blood. For, "Ye are not your own; ye are bought with a price."

2. By his choice and ours. "I," says he, "have chosen you." And, "We love him because he first loved us."

3. By the inhabiting of his Spirit, whose gracious presence makes us his. It is not a case of mere property, but of spiritual affinity: "The Lord knoweth them that are his."

4. By our grateful and affectionate service. That Christians are his, it is their daily aim to prove, by their delight in his Word, their devotion to his cause, their obedience to his commands. - T.

I. "CHRIST IS GOD'S." To understand this high saying we must remember that Christ is God. But Christ is man also. As Man, Christ is God's great Agent for man in every respect.

1. He is God's Messenger, God's Witness, to reveal the mind and heart of God towards fallen men. His whole life is an index by which you may read the secret spring of love divine; in Him "God is love."

2. He is God's Servant — obedient in life, "obedient unto death."

3. He is God's Priest — the One only "Mediator between God and men," who "ever liveth to make intercession for them."

4. He is God's King, reigning now invisibly in truth, and to reign in due time visibly in righteousness over the whole earth.


1. By creation, in common with all things. "All things were made by Him," &c.

2. By purchase, in common with all mankind. He "tasted death for every man."

3. By ordinance, in common with all Christendom.

4. By gift from God the Father.

5. By the secret power of the eternal Spirit working in due season, according to the purpose and plan of God.

6. In the enjoyment of a friendship and fellowship such as no other friendship can equal.

(H. McNeile, D. D.)

Where we may observe the apostle in a climax rising higher, "All things are yours, you are Christ's, and Christ is God's." So that the highest round in this ladder teacheth to heaven as Jacob's did, and the lowest one is in the earth. "All things are yours," there is your privilege; but "you are Christ's," there is your duty; even to see that whatever you are, or can do, it be in reverence to Him. So all things are for the godly, and the godly is for Christ.


1. He is bought and purchased by His blood, so that he oweth all his being, comforts, and privileges to Christ (1 Corinthians 6:19, 20). So then, well may the godly man be said to be Christ's, for he cometh to be His at a dear rate. Never did king get subject, or master a servant, at so dear a price as Christ obtained thee.

2. The godly they are Christ's because by His Spirit they are made new creatures. They have a new being. For it cannot be theft any should be Christ's who live in the flesh and are carnally minded.

3. They are Christ's because He is the Alpha and Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end. He is the Alpha; He is the Author and Fountain of all the spiritual good we have; and the apostle calls Him "the Author and Finisher of our faith" (Hebrews 12:2). It is He that giveth life and motion and all spiritual strength to us. Now every effect is more the cause's than it is its own. Seeing, therefore, thou hast no good but what thou hast received from Christ, thou art wholly to depend on Him, as the stream is on the fountain, as the light is on the sun — for take them away and these immediately perish. We are not to live to ourselves, but to Him (Galatians 3:20). All our graces are to carry us out of ourselves to Christ, our faith in Christ, our love and affections to be pitched on Christ.

4. We are Christ's in that all our Christian completeness is in Him (Colossians 1:19). It pleased the Father that in Him should all fulness dwell. The privileges of justification, and adoption, and sanctification, that we have by Him, are to be more than meat or drink unto us.

5. We are Christ's because we are wholly to be disposed by Him in all conditions, in all exercises and temptations. For Christ being made a Lord and King over us, He orders us in all things.

II. Now in the next place let us consider SOME CHARACTERS OR PROPERTIES OF SUCH AS ARE CHRIST'S.

1. They desire more knowledge of Him, more acquaintance with Him; they prize Him above all worldly things (Philippians 3:8).

2. Those that are Christ's abhor and have no communion with any sin or wickedness, because that only Christ hateth.

3. Those that are Christ's, they live not to themselves but to Him. They please not themselves or others in a sinful way. Exhortation to those who are Christ's to be self-denying, to take up Christ's cross, to love Him more than all they have; for Christ is not for thee, but thou for Christ.

(A. Burgess.)

Now the doctrine speaks of Christ both in respect of His human nature, and as He is a Mediator — not as God. Let us see, then, how Christ as a man and as a Mediator is God's.

1. His incarnation and coming into the world, it was not for Himself but for God.

2. That Christ is God's appeareth, in that He acknowledgeth His doctrine and truth not to be His, but His Father's, taking all off from Himself, and making Himself only a minister or ambassador in His Father's Name, and revealing His will (John 8:26, 28; John 7:16).

3. That Christ is wholly God's appeareth in that as the doctrine He preached was the Father's, so He sought not His own glory, did not exalt Himself but the Father (John 8:29; John 17:4).

4. That Christ is wholly God's appeareth in that obediential resignation of Himself to do God's will (John 17:4).

(A. Burgess.)

means that we are dependent on Him and belong to Him. Note —


1. In this is involved the denial —(1) That we are our own. We do not belong to ourselves in the sense that our own advantage can be the legitimate end of our pursuit, or that our will can be the legitimate rule of our conduct.(2) That we belong to the world, parents, friends, country, mankind in either of the above senses; that their good or their will can be the legitimate end or rule.(3) That we belong to the Church. It is a fatal error to live for and be governed by the Church, and know no higher end or rule or duty.

2. Positively the declaration includes that we are Christ's in such a sense that His glory is the end and His will the rule of our life. He, and He alone, has the right to us. To Him, and to Him alone, is devotion and submission due.


1. Not specially creation, for as creatures we belong to the Triune God.

2. But —(1) Gift. From countless orders of creatures the people of Christ were given Him, in the counsels of eternity, as a peculium, a speciality, in which He was to have exclusive right. God as Sovereign of the universe can give what He pleases, and His will is the only real and stable ground of property or possession.(2) Purchase.(a) This gives the right of property as founded on justice.(b) The purchase involving redemption from infinite evil gives the higher and tenderer obligation of gratitude.(c) The price paid being His own precious blood it gives the highest of all obligations, that of love.(3) Conquest. We were the captives of Satan. Christ has destroyed his power and delivered us who were led captive at his will.


1. The servants of Christ, which expresses the relation as founded in justice. We are bound as His δούλοι to live for Him and obey Him.

2. His bride. This includes the ideas of —

(1)Exclusive possession.

(2)Preference and peculiar love.

(3)Perfect community of interest.

3. His friends, bound to Him by mutual love and confidence.

4. His body. Nothing is so intimately a man's own as his body. It has a common life and consciousness with him. The pains and pleasures of the body are our own pains and pleasures. It has a common interest and destiny with us. So are we bound to Christ in all these ways. This is the nearest relationship of all.


1. Security. If we belong to Christ as His servants, &c., we are secure for time and eternity.

2. Participation in Christ's excellence, both as to soul and body — in His happiness, glory, and dominion.


1. That we should act worthy of this relation. Remember that we belong neither to ourselves nor the world, but only to Christ.

2. Contentment. We may well be satisfied if we are Christ's, for all things are ours.

3. Joyful anticipation of Christ's coming.

(C. Hodge, D. D.)

You are His —

I. BY DONATION; for the Father gave you to the Son.

II. BY PURCHASE; for He counted down the price for your redemption.

III. BY DEDICATION; for you have consecrated yourself to Him.

IV. BY RELATION; for you are named by His name, and made one of His brethren and joint heirs. Application — Labour practically to show the world that you are —

(1)The servant.

(2)The friend.

(3)The bride of Jesus.

(C. H. Spurgeon.)

A gentleman one day took an acquaintance to the top of his house to show him the extent of his possessions. Waving his hand about, "There," said he, "that is my estate." Then pointing to a great distance on one side, "Do you see that farm?" "Yes." "Well, that is mine." Pointing again to the other side, "Do you see that house?" "Yes." "That also belongs to me." "Then," said his friend, "do you see that little village out yonder?" "Yes." "Well, there lives a poor woman in that village who can say more than all this." "Ay! what can she say?" "Why, she can say, 'Christ is mine.'" He looked confounded, and said no more.

2 CORINTHIANS iii. 4-18. In the Holy Spirit I experience a large emancipation. "Where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty." I am delivered from all enslaving bondage--from the bondage of literalism, and legalism, and ritualism. I am not hampered by excessive harness, by multitudinous rules. The harness is fitting and congenial, and I have freedom of movement, and "my yoke is easy and my burden is light." And I am to use my emancipation of spirit in the ministry of contemplation. I am to

Temples of God
'Know ye not that ye are the temple of God?'--1 COR. iii. 16 The great purpose of Christianity is to make men like Jesus Christ. As He is the image of the invisible God we are to be the images of the unseen Christ. The Scripture is very bold and emphatic in attributing to Christ's followers likeness to Him, in nature, in character, in relation to the world, in office, and in ultimate destiny. Is He the anointed of God? We are anointed--Christs in Him. Is He the Son of God? We in Him receive the

God's Fellow-Workers
'Labourers together with God.'--1 COR. iii. 9. The characteristic Greek tendency to factions was threatening to rend the Corinthian Church, and each faction was swearing by a favourite teacher. Paul and his companion, Apollos, had been taken as the figureheads of two of these parties, and so he sets himself in the context, first of all to show that neither of the two was of any real importance in regard to the Church's life. They were like a couple of gardeners, one of whom did the planting, and

Death, the Friend
'... All things are yours ... death.'--1 COR. iii. 21, 22. What Jesus Christ is to a man settles what everything else is to Him. Our relation to Jesus determines our relation to the universe. If we belong to Him, everything belongs to us. If we are His servants, all things are our servants. The household of Jesus, which is the whole Creation, is not divided against itself, and the fellow-servants do not beat one another.

The Corinthian Christians seem to have carried into the Church some of the worst vices of Greek--and English--political life. They were split up into wrangling factions, each swearing by the name of some person. Paul was the battle-cry of one set; Apollos of another. Paul and Apollos were very good friends,

Sanctified for Service.
"We are labourers together with God; ye are God's husbandry; ye are God's building."--1 COR. iii. 9. In this passage St. Paul is rebuking the Corinthians for that spirit of party which was dividing them into followers of this or that teacher and so destroying their unity in Christ. You do not belong, he says, to Paul or to Apollos; we have no claim upon you; ye are not to be called by our name: you are God's husbandry, and God's building, not ours; we are but labourers in His service and

On the Wisdom of this World
"The wisdom of this world is foolishness with God."--I Cor. iii. 19. It is remarkable that about the time of our Saviour's coming into the world all kinds of learning flourished to a very great degree, insomuch that nothing is more frequent in the mouths of many men, even such who pretend to read and to know, than an extravagant praise and opinion of the wisdom and virtue of the Gentile sages of those days, and likewise of those ancient philosophers who went before them, whose doctrines are left

On the Interpretation of Scripture
IT is a strange, though familiar fact, that great differences of opinion exist respecting the Interpretation of Scripture. All Christians receive the Old and New Testament as sacred writings, but they are not agreed about the meaning which they attribute to them. The book itself remains as at the first; the commentators seem rather to reflect the changing atmosphere of the world or of the Church. Different individuals or bodies of Christians have a different point of view, to which their interpretation

The Existence of Merit
1. HERETICAL ERRORS AND THE TEACHING OF THE CHURCH.--a) The medieval Beguins and Beghards held that man is able to attain such a perfect state of holiness here below as no longer to require an increase of grace or good works.(1226) Luther, holding that justification consists in the covering up of sin and the external imputation of the justice of Christ, consistently though falsely asserted that "the just man sins in every good work,"(1227) that "a good work, no matter how well performed, is a venial

The Objects of Merit
After defining the existence of merit the Tridentine Council enumerates its objects as follows: "If anyone saith that the justified, by the good works which he performs, ... does not truly merit increase of grace, eternal life, and the attainment of that eternal life,--if it be so, however, that he depart in grace,--and also an increase of glory: let him be anathema."(1320) Hence merit calls for a threefold reward: (1) an increase of sanctifying grace; (2) heavenly glory; and (3) an increase of that

1 Corinthians 3:1.--And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal. The apostle here speaks of two stages of the Christian life, two types of Christians: "I could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ." They were Christians, in Christ, but instead of being spiritual Christians, they were carnal.

The Indwelling Spirit Fully and Forever Satisfying.
The Holy Spirit takes up His abode in the one who is born of the Spirit. The Apostle Paul says to the believers in Corinth in 1 Cor. iii. 16, R. V., "Know ye not that ye are a temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?" This passage refers, not so much to the individual believer, as to the whole body of believers, the Church. The Church as a body is indwelt by the Spirit of God. But in 1 Cor. vi. 19, R. V., we read, "Know ye not that your body is a temple of the Holy Ghost which is

How the Wise and the Dull are to be Admonished.

For the wise are to be admonished that they leave off knowing what they know: the dull also are to be admonished that they seek to know what they know not. In the former this thing first, that they think themselves wise, is to be thrown down; in the latter whatsoever is already known of heavenly wisdom is to be built up; since, being in no wise proud, they have, as it were, prepared their hearts for supporting
