Bo Noonan speaks from Matthew 13:44 on the Parable of the Hidden Treasure. This was a special Sunday that included the children being in for the adult gathering.
The progression of the Kingdom of Heaven penetrating our lives is TREASURE - JOY - SACRIFICE. Too often we think it's about sacrifice, that will get us a treasure and then that treausre will produce joy in our hearts.
The twist of the story is that we need to see Jesus as the great laborer who sold it all to get us... this brings Jesus much joy. Sure, we should lay it all down for Jesus as He's our great treasure, but when we fail to do so, we know we have Jesus who did it all for us!
