Jesus the Pearl of Great Price is Calling You



Jesus is Priceless

Jesus is Calling You
Jesus is calling you - He is priceless
Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you. Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full (John 16:23-24).

During the course of time men have gone to great lengths, both legal and illegal, to obtain diamonds, gold, pearls, and money; yet all men die and they cannot take a dime with them. The Pearl of Great Price, Jesus as King of the Kingdom, never leaves us and we have Jesus forever. Jesus is utterly priceless; more valuable than all the wealth in the entire world. This King in His Kingdom is the source of true joy.

Abide in Me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in Me. I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing (John 15:4-5).

Do Not Worry: Trust Jesus

I will tell of the kindnesses of the LORD, 
   the deeds for which he is to be praised, 
   according to all the LORD has done for us— 
yes, the many good things
   according to his compassion and many kindnesses. 
He said, “Surely they are my people, 
   children who will be true to me”; 
   and so he became their Savior. 
In all their distress he too was distressed, 
   and the angel of his presence saved them. 
In his love and mercy he redeemed them; 
   he lifted them up and carried them… (Isaiah 63:7-9).

Out of our selves, into Christ, we must go (C.S. Lewis).

Believers should seek to see things from the Lord’s perspective as we remind ourselves how much He has done for us, given us, and provided for us. As we ponder the goodness of the Lord, our worries will shrink.

The Lord Jesus is always good to His people. One day I was walking down the street. It was almost 100 degrees outside: clear, blue, and hot. It was a great day for a snow cone or some Gatorade. Then out of the corner of my eye, I saw her. She must have been about seven years old. Just a little daisy; her cheeks flushed as she was perspiring from the heat. She was selling lemonade or Kool-Aid. But the beverage was not very cool for there wasn’t any ice in the four cups that were sitting on the table in her unshaded yard.

The few cups she had, looked, well, a little used. She wasn’t wearing a happy-go-lucky child’s grin, but had a discouraged look on her face from the heat and lack of customers. I said: “Hey little one—how’s business?” “Not too good,” she replied. “How much for a cup?” “25 cents.” Then I said, “I’ll take them all,” as I handed her a five dollar bill to keep.

As a result, she was jubilant. I was happy. And it showed me a small picture of God’s care for His people.

So often we wrestle with worry as we temporarily forget that Jesus cares for us. He really does. He comes along side and gives and gives, and gives some more. He knows what you need and He will provide at the right time. The lesson: Jesus will come. In the heat, sweat, and discouragement, Jesus comes. He always does.
