What does it mean in the Bible, 'You were bought with a price'?

[Mr. Talin Rowe asked: Praise be to The Lord, Datta. Please if you’d like to, clarify the meaning behind 1 Corinthians 6:20 passage written by the Apostle Paul:

“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? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's.” Thank You, and I hope you are well. Warmest regards, Talin Rowe]

Swami replied:- The body and spirit are created by God and hence, belong to God. Without doing service to God, the soul and the body become a waste and priceless. If these are useful to glorify God, these have a very high price. Such high price is given by God to the servant of God.
