True Treasure

“The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in the field, which a man found and hid again; and from joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.” Matthew 13:44 (NASB)

Jesus Christ is the true treasure; in Him there is an abundance of all that which is rich and useful, and will be a portion for us: all fullness (Col. 1:19; John 1:16): treasures of wisdom and knowledge (Col. 2:3), of righteousness, grace, and peace; these are laid up for us in Christ; and, if we have an interest in Him, it is all our own. Matthew Henry

What is the world to me,
With all its vaulted pleasure
When Thou, and Thou alone,
Lord Jesus, art my Treasure!
Georg Pfefferkorn

The Gospel According To Jesus – Part 99

“Why do you reason because you have no bread? Do you not yet perceive nor understand? Is your heart still hardened? Having eyes, do you not see? And do you not remember? When I broke the five loaves for the five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments did you take up?
Also, when I broke the seven for the four thousand, how many large baskets full of fragments did you take up? How is it you do not understand?”
Mark 8:17-21 (NKJV)
