My own special treasure!

(Theodore Cuyler, "Wayside Springs from the Fountain of Life" 1883)

"You will be My own special treasure!" Exodus 19:5

Luther said that there is great divinity in the personal pronouns of Scripture. "They will be Mine — in the day when I make up My jewels!" Malachi 3:17

Every true believer is surrendered to the ownership of Christ. Up to the hour of conversion we had other masters — self, sin, and the devil. Now Jesus says to each Christian, "You are Mine! I own you. I will instruct you, and polish you, and put you wherever it pleases Me. I will take care of you, and nothing shall pluck you out of My hand. You shall be My own special treasure in the day of My triumphant appearing. I will place you in My crown!"
