I am His!

I am His by purchase and I am His by conquest;
I am His by donation and I am His by election;
I am His by covenant and I am His by marriage;
I am wholly His;
I am peculiarly His;
… I am universally His;
I am eternally His.
Once I was a slave but now I am a son;
once I was dead but now I am alive;
once I was darkness but now I am light in the Lord;
once I was a child of wrath, an heir of hell, but now I am an heir of heaven;
once I was Satan’s bond-servant but now I am God’s freeman;
once I was under the spirit of bondage but now I am under the Spirit of adoption that seals up to me the remission of my sins, the justification of my person, and the salvation of my soul.
