The treasure in us!!!


Yes, the treasure - TREASURE - IS in us. We are TREASURE BOXES!!!
2 Cor. 4:7 says, "...we have this treasure in earthen vessels..."
Col. 2:3 says, "In whom (Christ) are hid all the treasure of wisdom and knowledge..."; and the Amp. Version has, "In Him, all the tresures of [divine]wisdom [of comprehensive insight into the ways and purposes of God]and [all the riches of spiritual knowledge and enlightenment are stored up and hidden]"
Since we are ONE W. CHRIST, then we have that treasure IN us...
The word "treasure" is the Gr. "thesauros", and our word [of each of us] is in this thesaurus.
A thesaurus = a lexicon, treasury, storehouse; a book which contains words and all their various meanings, shades of meanings, nuances.
Therefore, each of us is a "word" in that "treasury". We live out [express] all the ways that our word can be expressed.

I love this concept. The greatest Treasure we can have in our 'clay pots' is the Pearl of Great Price - our lovely Lord Jesus, Himself. And isn't it marvelous? We each can have that same Gem in our own vessels without diminishing its value one bit!
