7/8 Ownership

2 Cor 1:22 set his seal of ownership on us, and put his Spirit in our hearts as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.

He owns you. This should comfort you. This should bring you great peace and joy. You are his. You are his own personal possession. That excludes every other call to rights on you, including yourself. This is truly amazing for you given his wonderful love and benevolence.

He not only owns you but also he values you. How do you know? Is it because he is good? Maybe because he is loving? Is it because you are inherently amazing and valuable? H does value you. You know how much he values you by what he paid for you. He paid the life of his beautiful son. This he paid to have you.
