Hi there!

 

Welcome to Barah Ministries…a Christian Church based in Mesa, AZ…my name is Pastor Rory Clark.  A special greeting to our international audience…people who are listening to us in the four corners of the globe.  Grace to you and peace from our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

 

There are many ways to learn about God, and one of those ways is through songs, which do a great job of communicating the truth of the Word of God.  Here at Barah Ministries, we are blessed to have one of the best songwriters, best singers, and best music producers, all wrapped up in a single package.  Her name is June Murphy, and her songs are amazing at communicating truth.

 

Today you’ll hear a song from June’s third album…the Calling You to Freedom album…today’s song is…GOD’S PROPERTY.

 

TODAY’S SONG

God’s Property

 

In Romans Chapter 1, Verse 1, the apostle Paul describes himself…

 

ROMANS 1:1

Paul, a bond-servant of the Lord, Christ Jesus, called as an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God…

 

One of the expressions Paul uses to describe himself, a bond-servant, is the Greek word doulos, and it describes a slave…a person voluntarily in twenty-four hour a day, seven day a week service to God.

As believers in Christ we are God’s possession, according to First Peter, Chapter 2, Verse 9…

 

FIRST PETER 2:9

But you believers in Christ are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, A PEOPLE FOR GOD’S OWN POSSESSION, so that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who has called you out of the kingdom of darkness into His marvelous light…

 

As believers in Christ, we are described as the REDEEMED ones…purchased at great cost…First Peter, Chapter 1, Verses 17 and 18…

 

FIRST PETER 1:17

…you believers in Christ WERE NOT redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold from the futile way of life you inherited from your forefathers…

 

FIRST PETER 1:19

…but you were redeemed with precious blood…as of a lamb unblemished and spotless…the blood of Jesus Christ.

 

To be redeemed means to be purchased from the slave market.  When someone purchases you, they own you…you are a possession.

GOD’S PROPERTY

June Murphy

 

Here’s June Murphy to sing a song about being a possession of the Almighty God…the song is called GOD’S PROPERTY.

 

GOD’S PROPERTY

 

Our God is One

There is none like Him

No one is above Him or beside

 

GOD’S PROPERTY

 

There is no peer

To Almighty God 

The Godhead three-in-one is on our side.

 

GOD’S PROPERTY

 

We’re children of the Father

All who have believed

No one can ever snatch us from His hand.

 

GOD’S PROPERTY

 

Our Lord hung on the Cross

Enabled by the Spirit

We testify His power makes us stand.

 

GOD’S PROPERTY

 

We are God’s property

Paid for at Calvary

Redeemed from slavery

We are God’s property

 

GOD’S PROPERTY

 

We are God’s property

Indwelled by Trinity

Living integrity

We are God’s property

 

GOD’S PROPERTY

 

Because God owns us

We are in His care

Our problems His responsibility

 

GOD’S PROPERTY

 

Our God is Sovereign

All-knowing and All-wise

He’ll finish what He starts in you…believe!

 

GOD’S PROPERTY

 

We are God’s property

Paid for at Calvary

Redeemed from slavery

We are God’s property

 

GOD’S PROPERTY

 

We are God’s property

Indwelled by Trinity

Living integrity

We are God’s property

 

GOD’S PROPERTY

 

Jesus Christ laid down His life

He paid the price

He sacrificed

 

GOD’S PROPERTY

 

Our lives we owe to God alone

We’ve come to know

We’re not our own…

 

GOD’S PROPERTY

 

We are God’s property

Paid for at Calvary

Redeemed from slavery

We are God’s property

 

 

GOD’S PROPERTY

 

We are God’s property

Indwelled by Trinity

Living integrity

We are God’s property

 

GOD’S PROPERTY

 

We are God’s property

That’s right, yes, you and me

Redeemed from slavery

How does it feel?  You’re free!

 

GOD’S PROPERTY

 

We are God’s property

Heaven-bound…eternity

Reflecting glory

We are God’s property.

 

GOD’S PROPERTY

 

We are God’s property

Paid for at Calvary

Redeemed from slavery

We are God’s property

 

GOD’S PROPERTY

 

We are God’s property

Indwelled by Trinity

Living integrity

We are God’s property

 

To confirm that we are God’s possession, we have the indwelling God, the Holy Spirit…Romans, Chapter 8, Verse 9…

 

ROMANS 8:9a

However, you believers in Christ are not “in the flesh” but you are “in the Spirit,” if indeed the Spirit of God indwells you…and of course He does...”

 

We believers in Christ are also placed into union with the Lord Jesus Christ at the moment of salvation…Second Corinthians, Chapter 5, Verse 17…

 

SECOND CORINTHIANS 5:17

Therefore if anyone is in union with Christ, and all believers in Christ are, he is a new creature…the old things passed away…behold, new things have come.

 

Thanks June for reminding us that we belong to God and that we are precious to Him.  Psalm 95, Verse 1 says…

 

PSALM 95:1

O come, let us sing for joy to the Lord…

Let us shout joyfully to the rock of our salvation.

 

We dedicate the closing moments of our lesson today to anyone watching or to anyone listening who no longer wants to live under the slavery and the rulership of God’s enemy, Satan…to anyone who does not have a relationship with the One and Only God…the God who loves you unconditionally…the faithful One…the one who forgive all of your sins…the One who wants to make you His possession…the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  Acts, Chapter 2, Verse 21 says…

 

ACTS 2:21

‘And it shall be that everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.’

 

Right now, you can call on the name of the Lord by telling God the Father that you believe in His Son, and that’s the moment of eternal life for you.  Believing in the Lord Jesus Christ is the best and most important decision you can make in your lifetime.  A simple five-word request gets you to heaven…“Father, I believe in Christ.”  For a thief being crucified next to Jesus, it was a nine word request…Luke, Chapter 23, Verses 42 and 43…

 

LUKE 23:42-43

And the repentant thief was saying, “Jesus, remember me when You come into Your kingdom!”//And Jesus said to him, “Truly I say to you, today you shall be with Me in Paradise.”

 

Let today be the day you stop putting off the best decision of your life. You won’t ever regret believing in the Lord Jesus Christ and counting on Him to accomplish your salvation.  Believe in the Lord Jesus Christ…and you will be saved!  Then, get to know Him!  Grow, within the sphere of His grace, in the knowledge of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.  In John, Chapter 3, Verse 36, the Lord Himself says…

 

JOHN 3:36

“He who believes in the Son has eternal life (the resurrection life) right at that moment…but he who does not obey the command to believe in the Son will not see the resurrection life, but the wrath of God (the Lake of Fire) abides on him.”

 

Come on out of slavery to Satan and into the freedom of being a bond-servant to God…living the resurrection life.
