Coffee Time with Jesus

  • Jesus: Precious
    Therefore, to you who believe,
    He is precious.
    1 Peter 2:7
    Jesus is Precious. A diamond is called a precious stone. As the best diamond in the world would cost you everything to purchase, so Jesus is Precious, because His death cost Him everything. You were not redeemed with corruptible things such as silver and gold, but with the precious blood of Christ (1 Peter 1:18-19). As an item is precious because it is scarce or the only one of a kind, so Jesus is Precious because He is the only Son of God—there is none other like Him. He is Precious because He is the only hope for those who are dying. Saints hang on to Jesus because He is their guarantee of life after death. No one else promises to be with them.
    Lord Jesus, I want to walk with You and talk with You. You are my Friend, my Guide, my Protector and my God. Lord, I value my salvation; it is the most precious thing in my life. You are Precious to me.
    Just as some items are sentimental or have precious memories, Jesus is Precious to us because we remember how He saved us. We remember how Jesus has helped us so many times in our lives. But He is also Precious to us as we contemplate spending eternity with Him.
    Jesus, You are Precious to me; You are my Savior and Friend. I treasure You in my heart for saving me, for keeping me and for answering all my prayers. I look forward to spending eternity with You. Amen.
    Go Deeper: John 12:1-11
    Jesus is more valuable to us than the most precious thing in life.
