We act sometimes

like people are our possessions


to be controlled

and manipulated


We act as if they should do our bidding

and it comes from a selfish heart


But God is the only One

who can safely have people as His possessions



We are His

because He created us

and because we were bought with a price


with the precious blood of Christ


His goodness flows to us

because of being under His God-sized umbrella of grace


How blessed we are to be

so lovingly called out of darkness


to be His own


– Susie Stewart


But you are not like that, for you are a chosen people. You are royal priests, a holy nation, God’s very own possession. As a result, you can show others the goodness of God, for He called you out of the darkness into His wonderful light.

 – 1 Peter 2:9 (NLT)


Remember you are people who have been set apart for Him; He has chosen you to be His own possession out of all the peoples on the earth.

– Deuteronomy 14:2 (VOICE)



Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself, for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.

– 1 Corinthians 6:19,20 (NLT)
