Matthew 13:44 - 13:46
Steve Gregg delves into two short parables from Matthew 13:44-46, discussing the value of the kingdom of God and the sacrifice made by Jesus for humanity. In the parable of the treasure, Gregg highlights the worth of the kingdom surpassing all earthly possessions and describes how the purchase of a field to obtain the treasure represents Jesus' sacrifice on the cross. The parable of the pearl further emphasizes the need to devote every aspect of one's life to serving God. Gregg concludes by emphasizing the importance of being wholly devoted to God in order to receive salvation.
