God’s Treasured Possession
Now if you obey me, and keep my covenant, then out of all nations you will be my treasured possession. Although the whole earth is mine, you will be for me a kingdom of priests, and a holy nation.
We know as Christians that we are bound by faith and not the law. Yet we know that the Ten Commandments and God’s law still hold an important place in our hearts, even if we’ve never stopped to contemplate this heavenly promise-the promise that those who obey God and keep the covenant of the Ten Commandments are “treasured possessions.”
The Lord has made other promises to us concerning the law. Psalms 19:7 says, “The law of the Lord is perfect, reviving the soul. The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple.” If your soul is starting to flag and grow weary, if you are starting to feel overwhelmed and confused by the world, turn to the Lord’s ten simple laws, the commandments He put forth to His people on Mount Sinai all those centuries ago.
That’s why you must never think the Ten Commandments are obsolete. That’s why it is still important to study them today, to make them a part of your heart, so that you too may be the Lord’s “treasured possession.”

May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!
