To The Investigator!
"That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ; In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge." Colossians 2:2,3
Are you a detective type? Do you like to search out things and find the nuggets of truth within a situation? Do you find yourself investigating everything? There has been an explosion of television shows that encourage and entertain us with this type of material, CSI, Forensic Files, 48 hours, and many more. The drawing attraction to this is examining the mystery and searching out for the hidden truths to solve each puzzle. God has given us a mystery to solve that is full of amazing treasures, but we first have to go through Jesus to find the truth. The mystery of God revealed to us is found in Jesus, in Jesus is all the treasure of wisdom and knowledge that we will ever need to live life to the fullest as God has desired for us. Mathew Henry has written commentary of the whole Bible and tells us in his commentary regarding this passage, "The treasures of wisdom are hidden not from us, but for us, in Christ, and those who would be wise and knowing must make application to Christ." In other words all truth and treasure to be had or to be found must first be applied or requested for through Jesus. There is no shortcut to this process. Christ is the power of God and the wisdom of God, "But unto them that are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God." 1Corinthians 1:24
The power and wisdom of God is a deep treasure and a hidden mystery, hidden from the unbelieving and stored up for the righteous. If you are the detective type, search out God's truth that has been stored up for you in Christ Jesus and you will be amazed as you dig deeper into his word. Go to Jesus today and ask him to reveal more of his treasure to you!
