Hidden Treasure


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.
Matthew 13:44 KJV
           ~~~~~~~~~~~
Those blinded by the god of this world fail
To find the gospel set within their reach.
When you show them this treasure might the scale
At last with Spirit's nudge fall from the breach.
And then to see the light shine from their eyes
As they begin to feel their soul set free,
And, O, the Holy Ghost within them rise
As they come to the cross and like Him dies!
Then nothing in the world could buy them back
For they have given Jesus all they've got.
The Savior paid the price; though sins were black,
He made them white as snow, both sought and bought.
           There is a man and woman stumbling 'round,
           Just waiting for the gospel to be found.
           ~~~~~~~~~~~


REMEMBER: Commit to telling at least one person today about this greatest of all treasures, the gospel.
