Who owns a possession greatly prized? One in a special case? Most people, I think. You protect it; cherish it; bring it out on special occasions. You cry if it breaks; then work to repair it. This possession is special; it belongs to you.
The Lord looks on us the same way for He purchased us with His own Blood.
For if we live, we live for the Lord, and if we die, we die for the Lord. Therefore whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord’s.
