The Kingdom of God is not something that you can find by just laying around, you must make every effort to find it. Matt. 6:33
“But seek ye first the Kingdom of God, and its righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you”.
If a person has to seek something it means that the thing they are seeking is not in plain view for everyone to see and get hold of.
The history of the” gold diggers “of 1848, tells us that people travelled halfway around the world in seach for gold. Many people would sell their ranches and other posessions to buy equipment and spend hour and years searching for gold. The people became engulfed and obsessed with looking for gold that it was said that they had ” gold fever”. When looked up in the dictionary “gold fever”means a greed and contagious excitement of a gold rush.
How many of us are willing to give up everything we have for the sake of the gospel or to find the treasures of the Kingdom of God? Is our excitement about being in the Kingdom of God contagious? Are others being infected with our joy, peace and our lifestyle?
Jesus gave a very good example of how valuable the Kingdom is in ( Matt. 13: 44-46).
“Again the Kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which when a man hath found, he hiddeth, and for joy, of it goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field”.
“Again, the Kingdom of heaven is like a merchant man, seeking (fine) pearls, Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.”
Brothers and sisters let us use the enthousiasm of the gold diggers of California and become gold diggers of the Kingdom of heaven, I am sure that we will not be disappointed as many of the gold diggers of California were, for our God will by no means disappoint those who earnestly seek Him.
For whosoever seeketh shall surely find in the Kingdom.
