I went to our congregation this morning. It was really a great time. We were reading and talking about Exodus 18 and 19. Ex 19:5 really tugged at my heart where God told the Israelites that if they would obey Him He would make them His special treasure. When I read that, it makes me long for that and makes me feel jealous of them. Then I read Titus 2:11-14 and saw where Paul wrote to Titus (a Greek) that if he followed God and obeyed His commands and all that He told Him to do, that He would make Him his own special possession and also that this was a word for all peoples (vs 11). I am so glad that God opened His heart to the whole world and calls us all to be His special treasure if we will but obey Him and His commands.
On the way home from there, my girls and I sang How He Loves Us, and the song also came to my heart about His Banner over Me is Love. Sweet times.
I hope you are having a great weekend and draw close to Him also.
