A Special Treasure to God

God told Moses, who would then tell Israel, “Now therefore, if you will indeed obey My voice and keep My covenant, then you shall be a special treasure to Me above all people; for all the earth is Mine” (Exodus 19:5).
How could Israel be a special treasure to God? Simply obey His voice and keep His covenant. Was that too much to ask? Remember He delivered them from Egypt and they were headed for the land of Canaan where they have their own land, nation, and so on.
How can we be a special treasure to God? Simply obey His voice and keep His covenant. Is that too much for God to ask of Christians, whom He has redeemed from their sin and the consequences of that sin?
