Double Covered

Double Covered
Double wrapped, packed in a box inside a package, hidden in a chest inside a secret room... The idea to me is additional protection - more care than is normally taken. Extra security. 

This morning I was reading in my Bible and was struck with the repeated phrase, "All things belong to you". This phrase is in reference to wisdom given by GOD to HIS children, and yet the phrasing was surprising to me. Then it was followed by the idea of me being the possession of CHRIST, and HE being the possession of the Heavenly Father. 

I thought of myself being cupped in the nail-scarred hands of JESUS, and JESUS being wrapped in the almighty hands of the Heavenly Father. I am doubly secured by belonging to the omnipotent CREATOR, JESUS, and HIS Father, the Sovereign GOD Almighty. Whom shall I fear?

1 Corinthinans 3:18 - 23 (New American Standard Bible)

Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you thinks that he is wise in this age, he must become foolish, so that he may become wise. 19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness before God. For it is written, “He is the one who catches the wise in their craftiness”; 20 and again, “The Lord knows the reasonings of the wise, that they are useless.” 21 So then let no one boast in men. For all things belong to you, 22 whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or things present or things to come; all things belong to you, 23 and you belong to Christ; and Christ belongs to God.
