Our DAILY GOSPEL DEVOTIONAL is the story of Jesus from Incarnation to Ascension. This is a chronology and harmony of the gospel accounts in which the ongoing narrative and doctrinal context are carefully considered. In one year we reflect on every passage of every gospel.
May God bless you as we follow the disciples on the journey through the earthly life of Jesus Christ.

Treasure hunt

Matthew 13:44…

Everybody is looking for what they value, their treasure, but whether or not you find it depends on what you are looking for and where you are looking for it. Of course, one man’s trash is another man’s treasure. A hidden treasure is something others miss. Sometimes we may come across something that doesn’t seem like treasure, but indeed it is.

Discovering something that you know will greatly benefit you is an experience that motivates us all. Imagine finding such a treasure, one that was worth dropping everything else. Jesus is saying exactly that. When we continually discover all that the gospel implies it is like finding a treasure that has no end, a fountain that ever springs, and a well that never runs dry (Colossians 2:3).

The question is have you discovered this treasure? I didn’t ask if someone had told you about it, I am asking if you truly have it. Perhaps you have seen it and experienced some of it, but haven’t yet dug deep enough to discover its depths. Keep digging, the treasure is just below the seemingly dry and dusty surface.

People say they treasure God but they want it their way, without much digging, or hiding, or buying by selling everything else. When someone is truly in love with something, they will go all out for it; nothing will stop them from getting what they so desperately desire. Jesus said that where your treasure is, that is where your heart will be. He is telling us that the kingdom of heaven is worth everything you have and so much more. We might not believe it yet, but the more God and the gospel become real to us, the more it becomes a joy to sell out for Jesus (Colossians 3:3).
