Matthew 13:44 NLT | “The Kingdom of Heaven is like a treasure that a man discovered hidden in a field. In his excitement, he hid it again and sold EVERYTHING he owned to get enough money to buy the field.”
The man discovered the treasure, and went and sold everything he had just to be able to buy it. The Holy Spirit is the very essence of God. He is the treasure of heaven. He is God’s ultimate gift to His children. He’s so precious that only those who demonstrate value for Him, by laying down their lives, can experience Him fully.
Do you desire the Holy Spirit? How badly and desperately do you want to walk with Him? He is unarguably within us. But walking with Him and experiencing Him in His fullness usually costs everything. It would cost you your life, relationships, reputation, reasoning, ego, wealth, and self in its entirety.
Precious Holy Spirit. Search our hearts today. Help us to give up our greatest treasures, so that we may walk with You. Be our only treasure and pearl of greatest price!
