I still remember digging around in a treasure chest full of sand at the Browning Fair. I felt something like a rock and pulled it out – it was gold! Actually, it was a rock, spray-painted to look like gold. I traded it for a cheap plastic fire helmet which was probably the greater treasure to a little boy enamored with firefighters like his Dad and Granddaddy.
There are wonderful and amazing truths to be discovered about our Creator, about eternity, and about our own souls. Where did God hide all of this wisdom? In Jesus.
God has hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge in Christ.
– Colossians 2:3 (GW)
Jesus is a treasure worthy of discovery. In fact, He’s worth selling everything else to focus on the hunt with all of our heart and energy. And where do we begin digging? Our first clues are in the story of God inspired in the Scriptures. Grab a Bible. Start digging.
