Jesus Christ is the believer’s treasure chest. It is in our Lord Jesus that we find all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. It is in our Lord Jesus Christ that we find both redemption and completeness.
How foolish we are when we seek to lay up treasures upon earth when we are given in Jesus “all things that pertain to life and godliness”. Jesus is that treasure for which we forsake all in order to follow Him.
Jesus Christ, the hope of glory, is the treasure that dwells within each and every saint on earth. It is Jesus who brings value into our lives. By submitting to His Lordship we become His treasures.
Because we are righteous in Christ,10 we are filled with treasures beyond dollar value.11 May the fear of the Lord be our treasure12 whenever we are tempted by the false glamour of the world.
