Hidden Treasures

"And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with Him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages He might show the incomparable riches of His grace, expressed in His kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God."1

You've probably read how the late newspaper publisher William Randolph Hearst invested a fortune in collecting great works of art.

On one occasion he read about an extremely valuable painting and was determined to obtain it for his collection. Apparently, his agent searched in art galleries worldwide—all to no avail. Some months later, the prized painting was actually found in one of Hearst's own warehouses!

Oh the incomparable riches and unlimited blessings that we all have in Christ Jesus—riches that will take eternal ages for us to fully comprehend and appreciate. Today, they are ours for the taking. Above all is God's full and free pardon for all our sins and the gift of eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Have you discovered and accepted these incomparable gifts from God for yourself?

Suggested prayer: "Dear God, please open the eyes of my understanding so that I will see all the riches of grace You have in store for me, and accept these. And above all, help me to see my need for and accept Your gift of salvation, sins forgiven, and the gift of eternal life. Thank You for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, in Jesus's name, amen."

NOTE: If you have never accepted Jesus as your Savior and are not sure of life after death, be sure to read "How to Be Sure You're a Real Christian" at:

1. Ephesians 2:6-8 (NIV).
