We are not our own, therefore neither our reason nor our will should guide us in our thoughts and actions.
We are not our own, therefore we should not seek what is expedient to the flesh.
We are not our own, therefore let us forget ourselves and our own interests as far as possible.
But we are God’s own; to him, therefore, let us live and die.
We are God’s own; therefore let his wisdom and will dominate all our actions.
We are God’s own; therefore let every part of our existence be directed towards him as our only legitimate goal.
