My own special treasure

(Octavius Winslow, "Pisgah Views" 1873)

"They will be My people," says the Lord Almighty.
"On the day when I act, they will be My own
 special treasure
." Malachi 3:17

Not one of the sheep given by the Father to
the Son shall perish.

Not a sinner redeemed by His blood shall be lost.

Not a child adopted by His grace shall be absent.

Not a jewel excavated from nature's mine by His
grace shall be missing in that day when the Shepherd
shall gather together His flock, and the Father shall
bring home His family, and the Savior shall cluster
around Him His redeemed.

In that day when the King of Zion shall appear, His
diadem studded, and His breastplate blazing, with the
precious stones of His especial and particular treasure.

"The Lord has declared today that you are His people,
 His own special treasure, just as He promised." Dt. 26:18

"How sweet is your love, My treasure, My bride!" Song 4:10
