“For the Lord’s allotment is his people.” – Deut 32:9 NET
You belong to Christ, and Christ belongs to God.—I am my beloved’s, and he desires me!—And I am his.—The Son of God … loved me and gave himself for me.
You are not your own. For you were bought at a price. Therefore glorify God with your body.—”You, however, the Lord has selected and brought from Egypt, that iron-smelting furnace, to be his special people as you are today.”
You are God’s field, God’s building.—But Christ is faithful as a son over God’s house. We are of his house, if in fact we hold firmly to our confidence and the hope we take pride in.—A spiritual house to be a holy priesthood.
“They will belong to me,” says the Lord who rules over all, “in the day when I prepare my own special property.”—”Everything I have belongs to you, and everything you have belongs to me, and I have been glorified by them.”—His glorious inheritance in the saints.
