For example…

And while that should be true for all of us, I don’t think that’s what Jesus is saying. Who is the man in the field in this story?

Christians are a part of the Kingdom, yes? The treasure in the parable is the Kingdom, yes? Therefore doesn’t that mean the one who attains the treasure is the King?

What did it cost Jesus to buy His Kingdom? He gave His life for it. He bought His church with His own precious blood (Acts 20:28).

Yes, this story can be applied to us. It can be about a man who is willing to part with anything to belong to the Kingdom. But it can also be about a Man willing to part with everything to buy it and call it His own.

If you are the Christian, you are the treasure that Christ was searching for. He came seeking to save the lost (Luke 19:10). You once were lost, but then He found you. Doesn’t that make you feel great?!
