DAILY?READINGS: 2 Chronicles 33; Daniel 1; 1 John 3
Unto you therefore which believe he is precious… 1 Peter 2:7
This verse doesn’t say what the Lord should be to us, but rather what He is! Love for Christ is a result of belief in Him and is one of the unmistakable signs of regeneration. John says,“We love him, because he first loved us” (1 John 4:19). Paul declares that if anyone does not love the Lord Jesus Christ, “Let him be anathema,” which means “accursed”. Friends, there is no middle ground. The saved love the Lord Jesus, and the unsaved don’t. The Redeemer is precious to all the redeemed. What does He mean to you? —Carl Knott
I love Thee because Thou hast first loved me,
And purchased my pardon on Calvary’s tree;
I love Thee for wearing the thorns on Thy brow,
‘Tis Thou who art worthy, Lord Jesus, ‘tis Thou.
