Buried Treasure

Many search for buried treasure in this life. Yearning to find something of value, they spend their lives looking for things that will eventually perish. The kingdom of God is like someone who searches for treasure and when he finds it, he sells everything he has and buys that field that the treasure is buried in (Matthew. 13:44). Yet instead of treasure that fades, and rust destroys, this buried treasure is of eternal worth. What is this treasure in the field? What treasure has God buried? You see when man sinned against God in the Garden of Eden, he was set apart from God. God, who is holy, could not overlook sin, because He is just (Deuteronomy. 32:4). So, God punished man with death and eternity in the Lake of Fire. Sin passed to all generations (Romans 5:12), and therefore to all men the punishment of death was given. But God, being rich in mercy and love, sent His only begotten Son to die for us as the Bible states in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” God’s Son, Jesus Christ came to this earth as a human and lived a perfect life without sin. Jesus lived the life that man could never live. But according to God’s will, Jesus was crucified by sinful people. Jesus went to the cross willingly, as the Bible says in Isaiah 53:7 he did not speak out against the wrong accusations that sentenced Him to death. Yet when Jesus died, it was not in vain. He took the punishment that we deserve. He took the wrath of God upon Himself. For three days Jesus was dead, but on the third day, He rose again, defeating death when He came back to life. This is all a gift from God to mankind, you only must accept it. You must believe in Jesus and forsake your sin. Romans 10:9 says, “if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” When you accept Jesus into your life, you are given a new heart and become a new creature (2 Corinthians 5:12), “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.” The Holy Spirit will come dwell in you (John 14:16). This is a wonderful work that God has done. He has redeemed his people. Bless His glorious name, for He has buried a wonderful treasure!
