1st Peter #3: Precious Christ?
1st Peter #3 : Precious Christ?
How to be consistent?
1 Peter 2. 4-10
4 Draw near to Christ,
the living stone
rejected by men
chosen and precious before God,
5 and yourselves, as living stones,
allow yourselves to be built up
7 It is therefore precious to you who believe.
As for those who disobey,
9 You, on the other hand,
10 You who were once no people are now the people of God;
you who had not obtained compassion, you have now obtained compassion.
“Drawing near to Christ” suggests a steady attitude.
In principle, we all agree, that’s the key.
He alone is
1 Peter 2.10
You who were once no people
are now the people of God;
you who had not obtained compassion,

Draw near to Christ, He is so precious.

We would be upset if it was stolen or taken away from us; in this we measure the interest we had for this thing!
But this object is not alive!
