“Peculiar Treasure”.

Key Verse

“For the LORD hath chosen Jacob unto himself, and Israel for his peculiar treasure.” Psalm 135:4

Text — Psalm 135:1-5


A treasure is a precious object of great value. It is something of value that is kept carefully. From our Bible passage we see that the Lord made Israel His peculiar treasure, which means He valued Israel. They were special and precious to God. If something is special to you, it means it is close to your heart. You will always be thinking about that thing. Also you will protect it jealously. This is what God has done for Israel and everyone that will surrender his/her life to Him. Why did God pick Interest in Israel? It is because Israel kept His commandments.

Father Abraham was called a friend of God; David was called a man after God’s heart. If you keep God’s commandments, you will enjoy the pleasure of being called His peculiar treasure. A sinner cannot be a peculiar treasure to God. He needs to repent and accept Jesus into his life as his personal Saviour and Lord. Then he will have the privilege of sonship. “But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:” (John 1:12)
