Matthew 13:44-46, Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field. 45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: 46 Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.
There is a PEARL worth giving one’s all for. It’s is the “PEARL OF GREAT PRICE,” or shall we say, HE IS THE PEARL OF GREAT PRICE?
“All the children of men are busy; one would be rich, another would be honourable, another would be learned; but most are deceived, and take up with counterfeits for pearls. Jesus Christ is a Pearl of great price; in having him, we have enough to make us happy here and for ever. A man may buy gold too dear, but not this Pearl of great price. When the convinced sinner sees Christ as the gracious Saviour, all things else become worthless to his thoughts.” –Matthew Henry Concise Bible Commentary.
Just as this merchant was seeking after OTHER PEARLS and finally found ONE PEARL that was worth giving his all to obtain; we too, who seek after many “PEARLS” in this life to bring a sense of real purpose for living, true joy, fruitfulness, and lasting fulfillment, can only find a real sense of purpose, true joy, a life of fruitfulness, and lasting fulfillment when we are willing to give all for the “PEARL OF GREAT PRICE.”
That PEARL – the true PEARL OF GREAT PRICE is Christ and the cause of Christ for your life!!!
