We Have Seen His Glory: Part 6, Seek Him
-Roy Lessin, Meeting in the Meadow
Seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Matthew 6:33 NIV
In this world there are things we desire and things we need. Houses, clothing, food, and transportation all fall under the category of “things.” Things are not evil or sinful but they are temporary. They have no eternal value. The gifts we unwrap at Christmas will one day find their way to a trash bag or a yard-sale table. The wise men from the East knew the difference between what was temporal and what was eternal. They left their homes and families to seek the Pearl of Greatest Price. They wanted to see and know for themselves the Eternal Word that became flesh and dwelt among us.
The value of finding Jesus Christ is beyond measure. His worth is more than a field filled with diamonds, He is a limitless treasure chest of priceless gems and precious stones; He is more than a mineshaft filled with gold nuggets, He is an endless vein of pure gold. His splendor is more glorious than a thousand sunsets, and His majesty is nobler than all the kings who have ever reigned. His grace is greater than our arms can embrace, His beauty is more than our eyes can behold, His love is deeper than our hearts can explore. How truly great is the reward of the one who seeks Him....
