Jesus my Treasure (Through the Gospels)
There is no kingdom without a king. It is the presence of a king that creates a kingdom. Is Jesus your King?
When we make Jesus King of our lives, His Kingdom begins to rule and reign everywhere we go. To make Jesus King means to make Him Lord over every area of our lives. When we begin to exalt Him above everything in our lives, we will experience God’s Kingdom here on earth as it is in heaven.
But how do we do this? How do we make Him King?
We must treasure Him. Have you ever thought about that? Jesus is your treasure? When we treasure Jesus and cherish our relationship with Him it will begin to dictate every decision in our lives. To treasure Jesus is to want Him more than anything else in this world. Jesus says, “The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field” (Matthew 13:44).
Does this sound like your relationship with God today? Is He your treasure? Do you joyfully surrender all your earthly goods to get this heavenly treasure? If you do, the kingdom of heaven will begin to invade your life.
