His Treasure

Jesus’ ransom sacrifice & victorious resurrection is a miracle we’ll celebrate throughout eternity. The wonder, majesty & sheer awe are far beyond our comprehension; yet, even the glimpses we do see overpower us with adoration... We can’t help but praise Him for such an awesome demonstration of love…

Think about it… we are cleansed – from head to toe; A to Z; past, present, & future – all sin’s guilty stain is gone and we are able to stand before Our Holy God justified (“just-as-if-I-never-sinned” as pastors often say). Please don’t stop here, there is so much more…think about this….

Jesus came because He wants YOU! He didn’t come just to collect your filthy sins – that was just a fringe benefit! He wants YOU – every part… Your Beloved Savior, with heart ablaze, came to claim YOU as His Bride…
…Our Great GOD and Savior Jesus Christ, who gave Himself for us
to redeem us from all lawlessness and
to purify for Himself a people for His Own possession
who are zealous for good works.
Titus 2:13-14
The KJV elaborates on the phrase, “His Own possession” saying, “His Own peculiar treasure.” God calls you a treasure…that is a far cry from how most of us describe ourselves isn’t it?

God has claimed you FOREVER…

He loves you in the extreme & infinite…
              He proved it with His life, death, & resurrection…
                              He cannot possibly love you anymore than He does right this minute!
                       He promised never to leave you or fail you!

He is so confident in His transforming LOVE and LIFE in you He boldly stakes His entire reputation, putting you on display as work of art… How can we give any less than our ALL?

Live every second as His Own, set apart exclusively from all others, & willing to follow His lead – even if it leads to your own cross! Live your love out loud… when we get to heaven we will never regret how much we declared our love for Him! He is so worth it!
