A man who is digging in a field finds buried treasure and joyfully sells all he has to buy that field. A merchant in search of fine pearls finds the one pearl of greatest value and sells all he has to obtain that pearl. What-or Who-is worth giving up everything you have?
Would you be happy trading off all of your earthly possessions for the assurance of eternal life? Colossians 2:3 says that in Christ are hidden “all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” Hebrews chapter 11 declares that Moses “considered the reproach of Christ greater wealth than the treasures of Egypt, he was looking to the reward.” Christ is the reward. He is the greatest treasure!
Only the Savior can give you and me what no other person or thing on earth can give to us- reconciliation with God, perfect love, assurance of forgiveness, eternal life, ultimate healing and restoration, joy that is unending, peace that endures through all circumstances, a permanent friend who keeps us from loneliness & despair. He is worth it all!
