You are precious in My sight!
(James Smith, "Daily Bible Readings for the Lord's Household")
"You are precious in My sight!" Isaiah 43:4
All of the Lord's people are precious in His sight! Never was
choice child so precious in the estimation of a fond mother
— as the poorest, weakest believer, is to the Lord Jesus!
They are precious to Him — therefore He laid down His life for them!
He will never, never part with one of them!
Their persons are precious,
their graces are precious,
their prayers and praises are precious,
their life is precious,
their death is precious —
"Precious in the sight of the Lord — is the death of His saints."
They are precious to the Father — as His choice!
They are precious to the Son — as His bride!
They are precious to the Holy Spirit — as His temple!
They are . . .
redeemed by precious blood,
blessed with precious faith,
interested in precious promises,
entitled to a precious Heaven!
"Therefore, to you who believe — HE is precious!" 1 Peter 2:7
