Precious Promises

2 Peter 1:4
Peter describes the promises of God as being "exceeding great and precious." They are precious because they are made by God Himself: they are an expression of His grace and love. They provide the surest inspiration for unwearied intercession.
The promises have been made to us in Christ Jesus in order that we should trust God completely at all times. The promises are precious, they are God's love gift to His children.
