44 ‘The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field.
45 ‘Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. 46 When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it. Mat 13:44-46
The treasure of the kingdom of heaven is hidden. It needs to be revealed by the Spirit of God. Jesus revealed the hidden things of his kingdom through the parables ho told, but to many people the secrets of the kingdom still remained hidden. The same is true today, the things of God are revealed to us b the Holy Spirit and not everyone can see them. But when you do get to understand the kingdom of heaven, the appropriate response is to give up everything else because nothing else compares to God’s kingdom.
Are you giving the things of God the sacrifice and attention equal to their worth? Are you holding on to your life, your dreams, your possessions, your relationships and placing them above God or will it be said of you that you found the treasure in God that caused you to give up everything? Will it be said that you held everything lightly compared to how you held on to God’s kingdom and everything it represents?
God’s kingdom is a treasure! Priceless! Give up your small ambition! Give up your worthless treasure! Give up your little life and fully embrace that which is eternal and priceless, the kingdom of heaven. Ask God today to help you to lay hold of the kingdom of heaven and to cause your heart to be excited about the things of God.
