Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ  Phil 3:8

.....Christ is like a ship that is divided among so many owners.  The ship belongs to every one of them.  Even so David, and Thomas, and His apostles, and all believers have their own property in Christ.  And yet, albeit He be a common Savior to all believers, yet every believer in particular may make Christ his treasure and his portion, and this should hearten (encourage) us to go in application of Christ to ourselves as ours, and never to rest till we come to that.....Where was he that could ever say:  "The sun, the moon, the earth were his property"?  These things are common to all, and every one is like to scart (scratch) out other's eyes for them; but having once gotten Christ by faith in thy soul, thou may say of Him, "My Lord and my God;" and O! but thou art rich for evermore who can say this far indeed, and art sure of it.
