“To you who believe, He is precious.” 1 Peter 2:7
Reader, put these few following questions to your own heart, as in the presence of God. If you can answer them affirmatively, doubt not your real interest in Him and in His great salvation.
- Is the Lord Jesus Christ precious to me, as He is to all that believe? 0nce He was to me without form or loveliness, and I saw no beauty in Him; is He now to me the chief of ten thousands, yes, altogether lovely?
- Do I behold an infinite amiableness and glory in His person, a transcendent excellency in His righteousness, an inexhaustible fullness in His grace, and a Heaven of happiness in His love?
- Do I esteem Him above every name, love Him above every creature and thing, and value an interest in Him before ten thousand worlds?
- Is the language of my soul, “None but Christ,” “Whom have I in Heaven but You? And there is none upon earth that I desire besides You”?
- Is all that men admire in the world esteemed by me as nothing when compared with the unsearchable riches of my Redeemer’s grace?
- Do I wish nothing so ardently, seek nothing so diligently, and rejoice in nothing so greatly, as to win Christ and be found in Him? Be this my portion! I want, I wish, I ask no more!
