Matthew 13:44 “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.”
This man found a treasure hidden in a field. He stumbled upon it by chance. He recognized the value of this treasure.
So he buried it back in the field, which he didn’t own and where he found it.
He sold everything he had to buy the whole field to obtain the treasure for himself.
The treasure is free. Eternal life is free to all of us. God gives it to us as a gift.
It costs something to have this treasure. Christ sacrificed His life for us. He suffered and died for out sins.
When we find this free gift, we surrender all to Him in joy and thanksgiving.
Praising God we have the treasure.
