Dear Mosaic Family , What's your most prized possession? Of all the things you own, that belong to you, what do you treasure most? When I was 17 years old, I spent my life savings life savings on a car. Now my life savings wasn't much, about $3,000, but it was all I had and I earned it by mowing a lot of lawns in the summer, shoveling a lot of driveways in the winter, and raking a lots of leaves in the fall. So I gave everything I had, to buy my first car, a 1988 Audi 80. Man, this thing was a beauty! I washed it pretty much everyday, it was pristine inside, and the rims were always glowing. I treasured it like the apple of my eye. There were only two problems: it kept breaking down and I had zero mechanical skills (and this was before youtube university). I ended up having to get rid of the car within about a year since it became a money-pit. Of all God's most prized possession, Scripture says that God views his people as His "treasured possession" (Ex. 19:5, Mal. 3:17). God's people are the apple of His eye (Dt. 32:10). The idiom "the apple of one's eye" refers to the most cherished and sensitive part of the eye, the pupil. God cherishes you as you cherish the pupil of your eye. Amazing! However, there's one problem: we keep breaking down. We keep disappointing God with our sin. But God doesn't leave us in our brokenness. He doesn't sell us or pass us off to someone else. Titus 2:14 says that "He gave himself for us to redeems us from all lawlessness and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works."
Join us this tomorrow as we look at Titus 2, and consider our gracious God who redeems and transforms us by his grace.
God Bless, Pastor Jan
