Strength For Daily Needs

When he found a pearl of great value, he went out and sold everything he had and bought it.

[Matt 13:46 NET]

We can well afford to give up all that we have to get Christ. If we receive the whole world in place of Him, the exchange would be at a fearful loss to us. The only way to get the pearl of great price is to part with the other pearls we have. We cannot keep the other pearls we have. We cannot keep these and get that. Christ is not to be bought for money, and yet we have to give all we have to get Him. The young ruler was told he must sell all he had and take Christ instead. He would not pay the price, and went away sorrowful.

Unbelief hinders even omnipotence, Jesus could not do many mighty works in Nazareth because of the unbelief of the people. His power ever waits on our faith. We do not know what blessings we keep from others by not believing. John the Baptist’s death seemed untimely. But he did all that he was sent into the world to do. Each life has its own plan of God, something given it to do. When that is done it is time to die.
