Our Treasure

Matthew 13:44 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.  (NIV)

This is one of only 2 very shot parables.  This one is also the plot of the entire Bible.  The kingdom of heaven isn’t the treasure.  Jesus is the man who found the treasure.  We are the treasure Jesus finds.  We are the treasure because we are the ones who God loves.  He loves and treasures us so much and is so desirous of an intimate relationship with us that He willingly sent His only Son, Jesus, to this earth, casting off His divinity to become in the same physical shape of us in order to bring the treasure (us) to God.   Remember, Adam and Eve did not go looking for God after they sinned, God went looking for them.  God is still looking for all of His treasure.  Our question is are we wanting to be found?  There is a saying, where your heart is there is your treasure.  God’s heart is for us.  We are His treasure.  Where is our heart?  Have we made God our treasure?
