The Pearl - Part 3

Average reading time is about 1 and a half minutes

And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. John 6:35

The gospel of Christ is a blessing that all may possess. The poorest are as well able as the richest to purchase salvation; for no amount of worldly wealth can secure it. It is obtained by willing obedience, by giving ourselves to Christ as His own purchased possession. Education, even of the highest class, cannot of itself bring a man nearer to God. The Pharisees were favored with every temporal and every spiritual advantage, and they said with boastful pride, We are 'rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing'; yet they were 'wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked.' Rev. 3:17. Christ offered them the pearl of great price; but they disdained to accept it, and He said to them, 'The publicans and the harlots go into the kingdom of God before you.' Matt. 21:31.

We cannot earn salvation, but we are to seek for it with as much interest and perseverance as though we would abandon everything in the world for it. We are to seek for the pearl of great price, but not in worldly marts or in worldly ways. The price we are required to pay is not gold or silver, for this belongs to God. Abandon the idea that temporal or spiritual advantages will win for you salvation. God calls for your willing obedience. He asks you to give up your sins. 'To him that overcometh,' Christ declares, 'will I grant to sit with Me in My throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with My Father in His throne.' Rev. 3:21.
