Choice and Precious

Check Out this Privilege

02/19/2020

Isn’t it amazing that it is often human nature to reject what is good and gravitate toward that which is bad? Although it’s sad, it’s true. Peter calls believers to realize that the One people reject when they turn away from Christ “is choice and precious in the sight of God.” (1 Peter 2:4)  The Greek words, “choice and precious,” mean that God appointed Jesus to the most exalted office conceivable.* He is held in honor and prized by His Father.** Continue reading in 1 Peter 2:5 and your heart can’t help but be warmed. Jesus is a choice and precious living stone and we are also living stones, being built up as a spiritual house for a holy priesthood. For what purpose? “To offer up spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ.” Oh my. So often we sacrifice for things on earth that are here today and gone tomorrow. But to offer up spiritual sacrifices to God. That is our privileged calling, my friend.

CHOICE AND PRECIOUS Savior, we love You and praise You! Center our eyes and sacrifices on You.  

*Choice, **Precious

Praise to the CHOICE and PRECIOUS JESUS

02/10/2018

“And coming to Him as to a living stone which has been rejected by men, but is choice and precious in the sight of God.”

1 Peter 2:4

Isn’t it amazing that often we reject what is good for us and do what is bad? Although it’s sad, it’s true. Peter, Jesus’s follower who ate fish with the resurrected Jesus, calls to us to, “Wake up!” Some reject Jesus, but let’s not be among those. Why? Jesus is choice. He’s precious to God. The Greek words “choice and precious” mean that God appointed Jesus to the most exalted office conceivable.* He is held in honor and prized by His Father.** If we’re in trouble. If we’re doubting. If we’re drifting or apathetic, turn. Go to Jesus. Cling to Him.

CHOICE AND PRECIOUS Savior, we love You and praise You! Help us set our eyes on no one but You.

CHOICE and PRECIOUS

06/22/2013

“And coming to Him as to a living stone which has been rejected by men, but is choice and precious in the sight of God.”

1 Peter 2:4

For a big, burly fisherman, the apostle Peter’s choice of words to describe Jesus are significant. It is as if Peter is trying to convey to us the high value of our Lord. He’s not to be discounted, tossed aside, or ignored. He is Choice and Precious

LORD JESUS, You are CHOICE and PRECIOUS in the sight of God and in my sight. I worship and adore You!

Worship He who is CHOICE & PRECIOUS HERE.
Write words of praise to the Lord in the Meditations & Notes section of Prayers of My Heart.
