A Precious Pearl

We are a precious treasure in God's eyes and to reclaim us - His treasure - and restore our relationship with him, He gave his own life. Now we are responsible for receiving the treasure God wants to give us.

God wants us to have an intimate relationship with Him. Jesus compared this relationship with his Heavenly Father to a very valuable pearl that a jeweler discovered. The jeweler sold all he had just so he could buy that exceeding excellent pearl.

Paul said that new life in Christ is worth so much that he considered all his personal achievements and human recognitions as trash in comparison to Jesus Christ in his life.

This personal and intimate relationship with God is worth so much that we should be willing to pursue it no matter what the cost.
