1 Peter 2:7 "Unto you therefore which believe he is precious."
Peter likes to use the word 'precious' in his epistles. What was most precious to him as he sojourned through life? Firstly, CHRIST Himself. Secondly, Christ's BLOOD that redeems us, 1Pe.1:19. Thirdly, the Divine PROMISES that encourage us, 2Pe.1:4. Lastly, precious FAITH that takes hold of all these things, 2Pe.1:1.
"Christ is not truly prized at all — unless He is prized above all" (Nathaniel Vincent 1639-1697).
