Pearl of Great Price

Matthew 13:45-46 Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is a merchant seeking goodly pearls: and having found one pearl of great price, he went and sold all that he had, and bought it.

This phrase and scripture has always been a favorite of mine. Not only is the church considered the pearl of great price, the born again believer is too.

Have you ever considered the pearl, how special it is; how it is rare, distinct and valuable. The pearl comes in all colors and sizes. They have imperfections and are made within the soft tissue of a living mollusk. A pearl is composed of calcium formed from sand particles and other impurities that slip in. The ideal pearl is perfectly round and smooth, but many other shapes, can occur. The finest quality of natural pearls have been highly valued and beautiful. It usually takes two to seven years to form.

Just like the pearl, a Christian has been molded and sculpted by God’s hands. We go through the trials of this life and God takes all of our imperfections and creates in us a better person, See we will never reach that perfection till we are one day with our creator.

As long as we live in the flesh, we have a sin nature that fails. But one day God will give us a new body and a clean uncorrupted heart. When we receive Christ as our Savior, we receive the Holy Spirit that teaches us how to become more like Christ. To God, we are a pearl of great price because when God sees us, he sees Jesus. Our sins are covered under the blood sacrifice of Christ.
