His Treasured Possession!
When we think of the millions who are in Christ's flock, it seems strange to us that He knows and calls each one by name. Yet the truth is made very clear in Scripture.
Every mother knows her own children by name, and it is as easy for the Good Shepherd to know each of His millions by name, as for any human mother to know each of her little children.
There is comfort in this teaching. We are not lost in the crowd. Each one of God's children, is the special object of His love and thought and care!
John 10:14 ... I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine.
Isaiah 43:1 ... But now thus saith the Lord that created thee, O Jacob, and he that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.
Deuteronomy 7:6 ... For thou art an holy people unto the Lord thy God: the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.❤
