“In [Christ] are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.” Colossians 2:3. As Christians we should be on a treasure hunt. What we seek does not consist of silver and gold. Rather our quest is to gather the precious gems of insight from God’s Word that we might gain the “full assurance of understanding…” (Colossians 2:2-3). The hidden treasure of knowing the Lord more completely is found in the Bible. The psalmist said, “I rejoice at Your Word as one who finds great treasure?” (Ps. 119:162). If we read the Word of God hurriedly or carelessly, we will miss its deep insights. These truths must be sought earnestly with all the attention of someone seeking hidden treasure. The treasures of truth in God’s Word are best mined with the spade of meditation.
