Jesus is the beloved of God and is his, just as we love Christ we are his. “Behold my servant, whom I have chosen; my beloved, in whom my soul is well pleased: I will put my spirit upon him, and he shall shew judgment to the Gentiles”.(Matthew 12:18). “So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another”.(Romans 12:5).
The people who truly love God do not live in sin, and yes we are all sinners and fall short of the glory of God, but as a Christian we know the importance of turning from our iniquity to serve the living God! “Nevertheless, the foundation of God standeth sure, having this seal, The Lord knoweth them that are his. And, Let every one that nameth the name of Christ depart from iniquity”.(2 Timothy 2:19).
We learn that if we belong to Christ others are even rewarded for acknowledging we are his. We see this when the disciple John tells Jesus when they saw one casting out devils they rebuked them, and Jesus said whosoever is not against them are with them and are rewarded! (Mark 9:38-41).
When we do the will of God he even takes part with those that help on for the cause we stand for which is Christ, and enemies are removed when we trust in him! “The Lord is on my side; I will not fear: what can man do unto me? The Lord taketh my part with them that help me: therefore shall I see my desire upon them that hate me”. (Psalm 118:6,7).
We are his and as we think upon his name you can be assured he knows who fears him, and when all is said and done he will allow us to serve him for all eternity FOR WE TRULY ARE HIS! “Then thy that feared the Lord spake often one to another: and the Lord hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the Lord, and that thought upon his name. And they shall be mine, saith the Lord of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. Then shall ye return, and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not”.(Malachi 4:16-18).
