READ: Matthew 13:45-46
45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:
46 Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.
BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Judges 6-8
The parable of the pearl of great price likens the kingdom of Heaven to a merchant who woe trying to find pearls of good quality to buy. When he finally found a very good and beautiful pearl, it was expensive Instead of giving up his quest, he went and sold everything he had and then went back to buy that valuable pearl.
This was what Jesus did on the cross of Calvary when He reconciled us to the Father through the blood He shed. Just like He put us first, we must always put Him and everything about His kingdom first. The Bible says in Matthew 6:33:
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you”.
One of the ways to seek God’s kingdom is by winning more souls into it. Just like Christ, you must have a burden to preach to unbelievers, and follow up and intercede for them so that they can become converted, You should sacrifice your comfort to reach the unreached.
Preach to someone on your street or in your class this week.
HYMN 22 – Must I Go And Empty Handed?
- Must I go and empty handed?
Thus my dear Redeemer meet?
Not one day of service give Him
Lay no trophy at His feet?
Must I go and empty handed?
Must I meet my Saviour so?
Not one soul with which to greet Him?
Must I empty handed go
- Not at death I shrink or falter
For my Saviour saves me now
But to meet Him empty handed
Thought of that now clouds my brow
- Oh, the years of sinning wasted
Could I but recall them now
I would give them to my Saviour
To His will I’d gladly bow
- O ye saints, arouse, be earnest
Up and work while yet ’tis day
Ere the night of death o’er take thee
Strive for souls while still you may.
Strive for souls while still you may
