The Scriptures are a precious gift from God to my life. His words there show to me the important, special, precious and loved one that I am for my God, and there I find what my soul needs to satisfy. 1 Peter 2. 9But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light. 10 Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
