Why is it that people so often forget the “under new ownership” part of the gospel, that when we are saved we are not our own anymore because we have been bought at a price?

Nor is this new ownership a bad thing. We are not losing; we are not turning in our cards: we are redeemed into the life that God intended for us to live. This life is the most meaningful and fulfilling one we can live. In fact, it’s the only life lived that has any meaning at all.
