Digging for Gold
John 5: 39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think that ye have eternal life, and they are they which testify of me.
If someone told me that they had given me the deed to a gold mine in Colorado that was filled with veins of gold nuggets, I would probably drop everything that I was doing and get there just as fast as
that pertain I could. I believe that you too would do the same thing.
The only thing that would hinder my going would be if I didn’t really believe that what they told me was true.
This is the way it is with Christians and the Word of God. The Bible says that when we search the scriptures, we find information that is more precious than silver and more costly than gold. In reality, the Bible is a gold mine, a gold mine of truth, wisdom and information that leads to life and life more abundantly in Jesus Christ.
In fact, the Bible says that in Jesus Christ we have all the important aspects of life wrapped up and tied together. He is the living Word of God and in that Word, every aspect of life is found.
We are told in 2 Peter 1:3 that His divine power has given unto us that pertain to life and godliness.
If you search the Scriptures, you will find that there is a lot to be learned about walking in divine health. All the goods in the world would not really benefit you if you were not in good health to enjoy them.
As you study the Word, you will find that it will add a length of days to your life, you will live longer. You will also find that the Bible shows you how to prosper in everything that you do. Now isn’t that worth something? Wouldn’t you be more confident if you knew beforehand that whatever you put your hand to do was going to prosper? Just think about that, you will make your way prosperous and have good success.
Yes, the Bible is a gold mine of wealth and prosperity, dig in and find the hidden treasures that await the serious searcher.
