Search It Out!

“It is the glory of God to conceal things, but the glory of kings is to search things out” (‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭25:2‬ ‭ESV‬‬).

When I was in college I heard a preacher speaking about zeal for the Lord and a hunger to know Him. I remember him talking about searching for “unsearchable riches” in the Word. There was no doubt in my mind that there were treasures to be found in the scriptures.

When Jesus walked the earth in the flesh He spoke often in parables. “And he answered them, ‘To you it has been given to know the secrets of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been given. For to the one who has, more will be given, and he will have an abundance, but from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away'” (‭‭Matthew‬ ‭13:11-12‬ ‭ESV‬‬).

It occurred to me that I have a choice: I can take my knowledge of Christ and His salvation and dig deeper to find more treasures; or I could sit back and blend in with the masses in ignorance. I know that sounds a bit harsh, but if we are serious about our relationship with Christ, we have a duty (and a joy!) to dig deeper.

“And hath made us kings and priests unto God and his Father; to him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen” (‭Revelation‬ ‭1:6‬ ‭KJV‬‬). In Him we are royalty, and it is our glory to search for all of the treasure we can find in God’s word.

Blessings on your weekend!
