A People for His Own Possession

…Christ Jesus, who gave Himself for us to redeem us from every lawless deed, and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession…
–  Titus 2:13-14

If He’s purifying for Himself “a people for His own possession” why do popes and pastors claim these same people for their own possession?  It’s not right.

Hear the word of the Lord, O pastor:

…”Let My people go…”
–  Exodus 5:1

Why should you let the people go?  Because they are His people, not yours.  And so that…

…”…they may celebrate a feast to Me in the wilderness.”
–  Exodus 5:1

How will the people celebrate a feast to Him in the wilderness?  According to Romans 12:1, they will offer their lives a living and holy sacrifice to the Lord in every place they go.

The Lord wants to possess His people – He does not want us to possess them.  He wants us to point the people to Him…that He may possess them.
