Wonderful, Hidden Treasures
“Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God.” – Matthew 5:8
The most important things in the universe were hidden inside the baby Jesus. When Jesus was born, only a very small number of people had the purity of heart to see what was hidden in the tiny gift of God.
Those few who possessed such pure hearts could see the hidden treasures inside in the baby Jesus. They dimly saw:
The bread of life.
The light of the world.
The door of the sheep.
The good shepherd.
The resurrection and the life.
The way, the truth and the life.
The true vine.
As God purifies our hearts, we, too, join those who see the wonderful treasures of God hidden in Jesus.
Ask for the gift of a pure heart and prepare yourself to see God even more clearly in Jesus. The gift of a pure heart is the gift that never stops giving.
“For unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called
Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the increase of His government and peace
There will be no end,
Upon the throne of David and over His kingdom,
To order it and establish it with judgment and justice
From that time forward, even forever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.”
