The Greatest Reward!

Much study of doctrine will make you a theologian. Much labouring under the law will make you a Pharisee. Much pursuing of Christ will leave you rewarded. Though you will be broken, and humbled, you will find Him! God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. And how does He reward them? Not with mere trinkets of this fallen age but by giving Himself – the greatest reward of all.

He has given us one of infinite worth – Jesus Christ. The pearl of great price! If anyone returns back to the world, it is because they have never found that pearl. Oh, what a loss! To trade such a great treasure for dung, a birthright for a bowl of soup! Truth is: when you lay truly lay hold of Christ, by faith, He takes your breath away! The world starts to dim, your desire for it fades and from joy over you trade everything you have, even your life, to follow Him.
