I will be their God, and they shall be my people.” – 2 Corinthians 6:16
We shall rejoice in this promise that God has given us. For it is only reserved for those who believe in Him and those He has chosen. It is all His as Spurgeon points out, everything. All the children of men He reigns over, but it is only those who He has purchased to Himself, He does not say this of the others. My People, this is so special to us because of all He has done for us. We belong to Him. Spurgeon writes, the He has done more for us than the others.
He has bought us with His blood.
He has set His great heart upon us.
He has loved us with an everlasting love.
Spurgeon’s prayer for us is that we see ourselves in that number. Do you? Can you call on Him and love Him with all of your heart, mind and soul? Of course we fall short of that daily. Our relationship with our Lord should be greater than any other. Just as His is greater with us, as he has called us to be His children. Oh what a blessing to be called a child of God, not because I wanted it, but because he sought me out, He found me at the depths of this world and pulled me out of the mess, and He clenched me in His arms. Oh I praise Him for that and call Him my Father. Thank you dear Lord for saving me. Amen.
