The Hidden Treasure and the Pearl

Sep 8, 2022    Bryan Fojtasek

We begin our study with a short parable about finding something so valuable that it would make you go and sell everything you had in order to buy it. What could possibly be worth that much? Paul’s words in Philippians 3:8 give us the answer: “What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ.” This parable invites us to consider how we will respond to the treasure of wisdom and grace God is offering us through Jesus. Will we have eyes to see it? Will we joyfully give everything else to take hold of it? Or will we let is slip through our fingers?
