I guess it’s the English teacher in me, but there’s something about the possessive pronouns of Scripture!  Tonight as I heard this verse being read aloud, the words “his” and “their” brought the sweetness  and wonder of this thought out for me!

 “… for he shall save his people from their sins.”

Matthew 1:21 

We are “his” people and He desired to save us from sins that by birth and deed belonged to us! It reminded me that He has “broken down the middle wall of partition” (Eph. 2:14) that once separated us from sweet fellowship with Him! It reminded me of my helpless and hopeless condition apart from my Savior!

Because God saw fit to send “his” Son, will can now be “HIS!” 🙂
