“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field. “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it. –Matthew 13: 44-46 (NIV).
Now it happened as they went that He entered a certain village; and a certain woman named Martha welcomed Him into her house. And she had a sister called Mary, who also sat at Jesus’ feet and heard His word. But Martha was distracted by much serving, and she approached Him and said, “Lord do You not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Therefore tell her to help me.” And Jesus answered and said to her, “Martha, Martha, you are worried and troubled about many things. “But one thing is needed and Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken from her.” –Luke 10: 38-42(NKJV).
You cannot find a treasure by accident. You just have to be looking for it in order to find it. You just need to either mine or look.
Mary of Bethany, the sister of Martha and Lazarus found Him and not only listened to Him but also anointed Him with fragrant oil.
Jesus is my precious pearl, He is my treasure. He is my everything. I found Him when my heart was empty. All that I knew how to do was; sin and cry ‘void’. Mary Magdalene found Him and the richness of His person and broke her alabaster box of fragrant oil. She was just ever following Him, listening to Him and helping Him with her substance. The day that He was crucified she also followed Him and must have been crying ‘my LORD’, when He was crucified and buried she followed to see where they laid Him so that she would attend His body. When He rose she was the first to find out, when she didn’t find Him she cried “where have they kept my LORD?”
I never knew the beauty in Mary and my Jesus’ relationship until my Jesus started one with me. My Jesus has saved me from the power of sin and the devil. I am free to love and live. I am glad that I am alive! He is Mary’s precious one and He is mine too- my only Pearl.
“Ask and it will be given too you; seek, and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. “For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. –Matthew: 7-8(NKJV).
