Spirit And Life Devotional: God’s Special Treasure

Must read

Spirit and Life Devotional is a daily publication by Pastor Chinaemerem Ibezim, senior pastor of Able Ministers Chapel, a church based in Calabar, Cross River State.

[pull_quote_center]”For you are a holy people to the Lord your God, and the Lord has chosen you to be a people for Himself, a special treasure above all the peoples who are on the face of the earth.” Deuteronomy 14:2[/pull_quote_center]

The Israelites were a very special people to God. Because of His friend Abraham, God chose the Israelites of all the people on earth and made them His special treasures. God’s relationship with the Israelites was one to be envied by the people of other nations.

But today, the Israelites do not enjoy that special privilege alone. Through Jesus Christ, we who were Gentiles were made the children of Abraham through faith. We are as important to God as the Israelites are; there’s no difference!

1 Peter 2:9-10 says, “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; who once were not a people but are now the people of God, who had not obtained mercy but now have obtained mercy.” Hallelujah!

Thank God for the Jews, but they are not more important than you in the sight of God! And you know, God isn’t partial: He loves and cherishes us the same, and He has lavished His blessings upon us! We are as important to the Father just as Jesus is! Yes!
