The Precious Treasure

He said to them, Therefore every teacher and interpreter of the Sacred Writings who has been instructed about and trained for the kingdom of heaven and has become a disciple is like a householder who brings forth out of his storehouse treasure that is new and [treasure that is] old [the fresh as well as the familiar]. Mt 13:52 amp classic

2 Co 4:7 kjvBut we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us.

If we embrace the kingdom of Heaven, and the kingdom of God, like they are our treasure. Every nugget of truth, is like a precious stone. Or even like the best grapes you ever ate. Well for the spirit it is but i can imagine the intensity of craving the Word, like many crave a good steak, or a warm fresh baked loaf of homemade bread. And every morsel is just smooth, and tender, and melts in our mouths... the Word is smooth, Jesus is tender, and it washes over us like the water of the Word, renewing our minds and bodies.

As we soak in the message of the cross and the richness of the freedom that we have in Christ, we are able to taste of the sweetness of life full of God's grace and what Jesus obtained for us on the cross. No longer having to try to earn our way into eternity with God, our wonderful, loving Father. As we crave everything new and old that God has given us through the Word....every nugget of truth becomes so real like the treasures that are found in the storeroom of the master of the house.

We are to search, even long for those nuggets of truth, those precious treasures. Long to be hungry for what God's ways are. How He operates, How we can achieve the wisdom of the scriptures that only revelation knowledge can bring. Communing with God on such levels, learning all about Him, so that we may become just like Him.

Whew what a wonderful place to be! A disciple of the most High, transformed into a likeness of the master of the house by the treasure of the Word, that's in the storeroom of our hearts, planted there by the Holy Spirit. But notice we have to search for them, and commit to being a disciple of the Word, because they do not come automatically. We must do something.

Blessings of grace and peace to you all!
