I just caught a few minutes of a movie where a girl finds a piece of some long-lost treasure. It ended with her walking away with that one piece and going on with her life.
Not hardly. I only saw the first 15 minutes of the 108 minute movie, but I think it’s safe to assume that the remaining 93 minutes will be about her going back to try to find the rest of the treasure.
Watching the girl’s intrigue and excitement about the treasure she discovered reminded me of the treasure we find in Christ.
We all love treasure. We all love finding something of worth. We all like the excitement of things that are out of the ordinary.
What was the piece treasure you found that pointed to Christ? Was it a scripture that spoke directly to your situation? Perhaps God answered a prayed even when you weren’t serving Him? Did you witness a miracle or a transformation in someone’s life? Was your piece of treasure the Holy Spirit comforting you when nothing else could?
Whatever the exact piece of treasure you found, it’s hard to simply walk away with that 1 piece and go on with life. It’s almost impossible not to be intrigued by the prospect that there is more where that came from.
What’s the best part? There truly is more waiting for us. Much more. All we have to do is go back and search for another piece. James 4:8 tells us that when we draw near to God He will draw near to us. That means that when we search for more of Him, we will find it. He is ready to reveal more when we continue to dig.
If you have found a piece of the great treasure that is in Jesus Christ, don’t walk away with just that 1 piece. Go back and dig for another. It’s there just waiting for your discovery.
Eventually you’ll have found so much that you’ll have no other desire than to share a piece with someone else. Then they will go back and search for more, as well. And so it continues…
Leaving no stone unturned,
