“Receive my instruction instead of silver, and knowledge rather than pure gold. For wisdom is more precious than rubies, and nothing you desire compares with her.”
proverbs 8:10-11 BSB
The very words of God are veritable jewels, nuggets of gold, silver and precious stone that the wise embrace and love. We roll them about under our tongues and savour every bit of their wealth and power. This is the prerogative of the Christian who alone can appreciate the value of these precious things. The scripture if full of wisdom and will instruct every soul that reads, meditates and understands. Nothing is worth anything except this truth… nothing compares to the jewel of wisdom.. get it, at all costs…
“They shall be mine, saith the LORD of hosts, in that day when I make up my jewels….”
God is gathering His jewels from every corner of the world. When they are all gathered into the store house of heavens vault, the end will come and God will give to the Lord Christ His everlasting inheritance of His blood-bought saints. We are His. We belong. Jewels of grace. Precious Ones that are forever glorified….
“…the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.”
Matthew 13:45-46 KJV
The jewel of the kingdom of God is at its centre and sun, the Lord Jeus Christ. We give up all that holds us back in order to possess Him, who our soul loves. We give up everything for the surpassing greatness of knowing our precious Lord Jesus. No one is like Him, or compares to Him. He is the Pearl of Great Price, and is dark and beautiful, rare, expensive and deeply gracious. To be a jewel in His kingdom of jewels, we must find Him, the greatest jewel of all, and hold Him fast to our heart.
