In 1 Corinthians chapter 6 verse 19 - 20, it says:

Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and that you are not your own? 

For you have been bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body. 

This exortation to holiness references the high price that was paid to bring us out of darkness into light.

As it says in Psalm 49 verse 7 - 8 regarding the costliness of salvation: 

Even those who trust in their wealth And boast in the abundance of their riches? No man can by any means redeem his brother Or give to God a ransom for him—For the redemption of his soul is costly, And he should cease trying forever— 

This verse tells us that saving a single soul is extremely costly such that no man, even though rich, could redeem his brother and  even with an eternity of trying, one man could never save the soul of another person.

We have only one path of salvation, the path provided by the Lord Jesus Christ.  The eternal and perfect God was the only person who could afford the price to redeem us from darkness and this price was His death on a cross which He willingly took on to save us.

Bless the Lord our God.
