A Pearl of Wisdom for you!

Thursday, January 3, 2008

Romans 8:37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

Some time ago, we wrote about pearl harvesting — how, like the oyster, God takes us in, an irritating grain of sand, and over time covers us with His beautiful covering that we may become more precious and more valuable for His Kingdom.

But here is another interesting thought. Once the pearl is ready, a great price must be paid to see its beauty — the oyster must die. It must be torn open in order to find the treasure within.

Hmmm. Our Messiah was bruised and He was afflicted. He was torn for us, that we could become the beautiful treasure God intended from the very beginning.

Each one of us is a treasure in the Lord's sight. We are highly privileged to be covered and cleansed and bought with a price! It is a great honor — even the greatest honor — to be called sons and daughters of the King! Through His sacrificial work, we have become the head and not the tail! We have become more than conquerors!

We owe it to the Lord to hold our heads high for Him and determine to do great things that His Kingdom can be furthered! Let's remember who we are and go forth with power! There's so much work to be done!
