The kingdom of heaven is like
a treasure hidden in the field . . .
—Jesus (Matthew 13:44)
One of my favorite Indiana Jones movies is about the search for the Holy Grail. In the movie’s climactic moment, the famed archaeologist is in the Grail chamber with an ancient guardian knight. Indy stands in the candlelit room, looking at the shelves filled with dozens of cups and chalices. One of the goblets is the legendary Holy Grail, the cup of Christ said to possess ultimate power. Jones must select the right one or he and his father will die.
“You must choose, but choose wisely,” says the guardian knight. “For while the true Grail will bring you life, the false Grail will take it from you.”
Even if you’ve never seen Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, you know what happens: Indy always uncovers the treasure.
Men, you have a choice. Jesus speaks of a treasure: “The kingdom of heaven is like a treasure hidden in a field,” He said (Matthew 13:44). It’s a treasure for which absolutely nothing should stand in the way. In eschatological terms, the kingdom refers to the millennial reign of Christ when He will return to run earth from Jerusalem for His thousand-year reign. Yet in the here and now, the kingdom has also been set up for us through kingdom principles, covenants, responsibilities, privileges, rights, rules, ethics, coverings, and authority. This is a priceless treasure, one worth everything you have. Choose wisely.
