Buried Treasure

If you had a reliable map to locate hidden treasure, you most likely would attempt to locate the treasure. Would you take the map, walk or drive to the location and stand there wondering how to get to it? Of course not, you would prepare; you would take tools; you probably would need help. If it was great wealth, you wouldn’t say, “When I have time, I’ll go looking.” This is just exactly how we should go after the treasure in God’s Word. We need a definite time to seek; we need tools; we probably will need some help from some who have experience; we need to prepare and plan. Then, we take the map and go to the site. We use our tools and start digging. We expend effort, we keep at it and finally we see it! We gaze on rich jewels of grace, mercy and love, special treasures of wisdom, knowledge and guidance, information on an amazing inheritance. We find information about life and about God’s plans and our future lives. All kinds of information about having a joyous, meaningful life is found, as well. Then, we find something that is like no other treasure! From the center of all this wealth, there comes a Voice: God’s voice speaking to our minds and hearts showing us how to enjoy our relationship with Himself, as He enjoys the relationship with us. How could it be any better than this? We are rich, indeed! The writer of Proverbs 2:3-5 explains: “Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; if thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God.” John Burton gave us the hymn, “Holy Bible, Book Divine,” in which he speaks of this limitless treasure: “Holy Bible, Book Divine, precious treasure, thou art mine: mine to tell me whence I came; mine to teach me what I am. Mine to chide me when I rove, mine to show a Savior’s love; mine thou art to guide and guard; mine to punish or reward. Mine to comfort in distress, suffering in this wilderness; mine to show by living faith, we can triumph over death. Mine to tell of joys to come, and the rebel sinner’s doom: O thou Holy Book Divine, precious treasure thou art mine.” Selah! Make your plan, secure help, grab your tools, go to the site and start digging!   Ron
