Summary: Looking at 5 things in the bible that are precious .


Today, I want to look at 5 prescious things that are found in the Bible


1st Peter 2:4-7

To whom coming, as unto a living stone, disallowed indeed of men, but chosen of God, and precious,

5 Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ.

6 Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.

7 Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner,

This song tells us how prescious Jesus is to us.

Jesus is precious, He is so precious

Jesus is precious to me

He is my Saviour, my Lord and my Master

Jesus is precious to me

When I feel disheartened, forsaken, forgotten,

Jesus is precious to me,

In every condition, He is my physician,

Jesus is precious to me.

He's comfort in sorrow, He's hope for tomorrow,

Jesus is precious to me,

He's all that I prayed for, What more could I ask for?

Jesus is precious to me

It's not earthy treasures, it's not worldly pleasures,

Jesus is precious to me.

And though I prize friendship, and praise God for kinship,

Jesus is precious to me.

Peter emphasizes the word stone,, Jesus is the rock of our salvation

Jesus is our cornerstone

Jesus was rejected by men,

(illustration) A young woman teacher with obvious liberal tendencies explains to her class of small children that she is an atheist. She asks her class if they are atheists too. Not really knowing what atheism is but wanting to be like their teacher, their hands explode into the air like fleshy fireworks.

There is, however, one exception. A beautiful girl named Lucy has not gone along with the crowd. The teacher asks her why she has decided to be different. "Because I'm not an atheist."

Then, asks the teacher, what are you?

"I'm a Christian." says Lucy.

The teacher is a little perturbed now, her face slightly red. She asks Lucy why she is a Christian. "Well, I was brought up knowing and loving Jesus. My mom is a Christian, and my dad is a Christian, so I am a Christian."

The teacher is now agitated. "That's no reason," she says forcefully. "What if your mom was a moron, and your dad was a moron. What would you be then?" :

A pause, and a smile. "Then," says Lucy, "I'd be an atheist."

1st John 2:22-23 22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son.

23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also.

2. The trial of our faith is precious..

1st Peter 1:7 so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes rthough it is tested by sfire—may be found to result in tpraise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.

Our faith in Jesus is prescious, becasue without faith, it is impossible to please God.

3. The blood of Jesus is precious

1st Peter 1;18-19 knowing that you rwere ransomed from sthe futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, 19 but twith the precious blood of Christ, like that of ua lamb vwithout blemish or spot.

Peter realized, that Jesus' blood was prescious. We sing the sont, There is power in the blood of Jesus.

The bible tells us, in Hebrews 9:2 that without the shedding of blood, there is no remission of sins.

The blood of Jesus, covers all sins.

No true believer would ever deny the importance of the blood of Jesus, for atonement for our sins

Jesus' blood is the central theme of the entire word of God.

Rev. 7:14 tells us ..I said to him, “Sir, you know.” And he said to me, “These are the ones coming out of the great tribulation. They have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.

The bible teaches us that te blood of Jesus is the only way to have forgiveness of our sins.

Is Jesus' blood prescious to you today? A lot of people today , have the same wicked attitude, and the unbelievers who viewed Jesus Christ on the cross.

Matthew 27:39-44 39 And those who passed by derided him, wagging their heads 40 and saying, “You who would destroy the temple and rebuild it in three days, save yourself! If you are the Son of God, come down from the cross.” 41 So also the chief priests, with the scribes and elders, mocked him, saying, 42 “He saved others; he cannot save himself. He is the King of Israel; let him come down now from the cross, and we will believe in him. 43 He trusts in God; let God deliver him now, if he desires him. For he said, ‘I am the Son of God.’” 44 And the robbers who were crucified with him also reviled him in the same way.
