"Yes, He is very precious to you who believe" (1 Peter 2:7)
I have three questions for you...
Maybe the answer to that is not so easy.
We Americans living in the 21st century generally have a lot of things competing for that position. We esteem money because of the power it holds and the freedoms it enables us to have. We consider our family and friends precious because of their love and companionship. We hold dear our plans, possessions, and personal happiness. So how do we gauge what we cherish the most?
For the believer in Jesus Christ, this question is supposed to be a no-brainer. The Bible says in I Peter 2:7 that the Lord IS precious to us who believe. Peter doesn't say that Jesus SHOULD be cherished, or HOPEFULLY WILL BECOME of value to us; He simply is. As all rivers eventually join the sea, so should all our passions flow into the preciousness of the Savior.
Oh but that was rookie Christianity stuff. We who are 'mature' have a kindler, gentler approach. We have many relationships and dreams that now have become more precious to us - but He'll understand. (Really? "But I have this complaint against you. You don't love me or each other as you did at first!" Revelation 2:4)
