The Pearl of Great Price

Jesus shared a parable of a pearl of great value that a merchant purchased after selling all his possessions.  Ellen White shares in Christ’s Object Lessons that the pearl can be interpreted as the gospel of Jesus as well as the world.  It is the gospel in that we must give up all for the sake of Jesus Christ.  It is world because God gave up everything to purchase us through the blood of Jesus Christ.  God’s gift to humanity received by faith compels us to respond by giving up everything for the gospel.  Make that commitment today to have nothing between you and Jesus.
