Finding Treasure

Excerpt from Tri-County Record, Rushford, MN. 9/9/10 by Terry Rasmussen

Who did God create when He created you? What treasure did He hide within you? I believe that God put treasure inside of each and every person. He put gifts, callings, and destiny inside each one of us.  I believe God designed us in such a way that the closer we get to our Creator, the more we find out who we are.  The more we develop our relationship with God, the greater the treasure is revealed in us.  I also believe that if you don’t have a relationship with God, you can live and die never knowing who you were supposed to be.
The Bible says that Jesus was sent as a living example of what we can be. Jesus said in John 14:12 “I tell you the truth, anyone who has faith in Me will do the things I have been doing. He will do even greater things than these because I am going to My Father”. Just think of all the things He had been doing. He was healing the sick, opening deaf ears and blind eyes, raising people from the dead, calming the storm and walking on water. He did all of these things our of His relationship to His Father who sent the Holy Spirit to help Him.
When we ask God to forgive us and invite to come into our heart and live, we become born again. The ‘old you’ is now considered dead and that’s why we bury it in baptism and you are then raised up to live a new life. From that time on, you should be able to see and hear God in ways you never have been before. This also makes having a relationship with Him much easier. God also wants us to have the same Holy Spirit that Jesus had. That is where we get the power to live the new life. Ask Him to fill you with His Holy Spirit.
God made something very special when He created you.
Find your treasure.
