Exodus 19:3-8 New King James Version
3 And Moses went up to God, and the Lord called to him from the mountain, saying, “Thus you shall say to the house of Jacob, and tell the children of Israel:
4 ‘You have seen what I did to the Egyptians, and how I bore you on eagles’ wings and brought you to Myself.
5 Now therefore, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be a special treasure to Me above all people; for all the earth is Mine.
6 And you shall be to Me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation.’ These are the words which you shall speak to the children of Israel.”
7 So Moses came and called for the elders of the people, and laid before them all these words which the Lord commanded him.
8 Then all the people answered together and said, “All that the Lord has spoken we will do.” So Moses brought back the words of the people to the Lord.
Sermon Note: Treasured Possession
I want to take us on a journey through the book of EXODUS, and along this journey.
We will see how God entered into the daily lives of His people and walked with them daily, giving them step-by-step instructions on what to do next.
In chapter 19 of the Book of Exodus. God told Moses to go up to the Mountain so that he could give the Israelites a covenant.
They will become God's own special people and God will bless them fully if they submit themselves to God.
He called them as His "treasured possession" if they obey fully and keep the covenant.
When the people heard about this, they were excited and responded by declaring their allegiance to God's Word.
We also belong to God and we have a purpose on this earth. This is who we are and this is our destiny. We are God's treasured possession.
We are the center of His attention.
We are God's treasured possessions by virtue of our relationship with Him.
