Bible Verse

They Shall Be Mine
Then they that feared the LORD spoke often one to another: and the LORD hearkened, and heard it, and a book of remembrance was written before him for them that feared the LORD, and that thought upon his name. And they shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels; and I will spare them, as a man spareth his own son that serveth him. Then shall ye return and discern between the righteous and the wicked, between him that serveth God and him that serveth him not.
(Malachi 3:16-18)

How fortunate we are to have a Father in heaven that loves, hearkens to and blesses those who honor, fear and worship Him. In fact, if we are faithful and follow His commandments, God remembers us and states: they shall be mine. This shows that Our Father is proud of His children and values all who walk in His ways. On the other hand, there will come a time when all mankind will be judged for their actions, be they righteous or wicked. And when that day comes, God will fulfill His promise to all: serve me and receive eternal life or disavow me and receive eternal damnation.
