God’s Special Possession!

[1Pe 2:9-10 NIV] 9 But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God's special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 10 Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.

I am sure that you have some special possessions that mean a great deal to you. They have meaning because of the memories they bring or because a special person gave them to you. What ever the reason they have become your special treasures. The value they have to you is beyond the ordinary things you possess.

Such is the expression Peter records concerning God's relationship to you. You are His Special Possession! Because of the sacrifice of Jesus as a believer you are now one of God's chosen people. A royal priesthood, a holy nation. Because of your acceptance of Jesus Christ as your Savior, you have become a Special Possession of God. You have received the mercy for which the cross of Christ provided for you.

Nancy and I are still at Honor Health Hospital on Shea Blvd. in Scottsdale, Arizona. Please continue to pray for Nancy that all will be well as God touches her physical needs. It is a great comfort to know that as we are facing a time of crisis for our family that we are Special Possessions of our heavenly Father!  As the devotion for today In "Our Daily Bread" declares, We can hear our King and Lord say "This one I love. This one is mine!

Keep Looking Up!
