A Treasure Inside You

(2Cor 4:7) “…We have this treasure in earthen vessels”

Here Paul is reminding his readers of the great privilege they have in being a child of God.  The moment one repents of their sin and accepts the truth that Jesus is their ONLY HOPE for forgiveness with God a marvelous transaction occurs.  That which was spiritually dead within the person is born again.  Where we were dead in trespasses and sins we are now made alive.  That which makes us alive is none other than the Spirit of the Living God.  While there remains nothing good in us there is, at the same time, a special Treasure that we now possess.  The Holy Spirit of God takes up permanent residence within the new believer and now, though your flesh remains corrupt and decaying, yet that body is now the storehouse of Almighty God in the person of the Holy Spirit.  No matter what others may say about you, please remember that you have an unbelievable Treasure in your earthen vessel.  You are not worthless to God, you are the very temple in which He dwells!  Be encouraged, God wants to work through you today!

God Loves You

Ruth 2:5 “Then said Boaz unto his servant that was set over the reapers, Whose damsel is this?”

God knows where you are!  This week as you step out to face the adversaries of the faith it will do you well to remember this precious truth.  Boaz, a type of our Blessed Lord and Saviour, was visiting His fields where His servants were repeating.  Of the dozens or hundreds working in His fields Boaz (Christ) took notice of one particular maiden.  She was not like the others but rather than dismiss her Boaz, through grace, took special note of her.  There is nothing in you nor anything done by you that merits God’s favor (grace) toward you.  He, very simply put, loves you!  That’s it…that’s all…God loves you!  He knows where you are and He knows the struggles you face.  If we have His attention we know we have His protection.  Paul said it this way, “All things work together for good to them that love God…”. There is nothing that comes into the life of a child of God that does not first pass through the loving and providential hands of our Lord.  Be encouraged, God knows Where you are and He is using you!
