Unclaimed Treasure

Galatians 3:1-14

A writer recalled his grandmother’s devotion to her church. Would it merit her some important job in heaven such as, “mending clouds”? God is not recruiting people to do upkeep work on the New Jerusalem. The Creator can just say one word and things will be neatly fixed. His purpose is much higher for those He seeks to recruit: “so that by faith we might receive  . . . the Spirit” (3:14). This is not a wish for a distant tomorrow, but for this very day.

From time to time, our newspaper prints pages under the title “Unclaimed Properties.” It lists names of persons who have never claimed valuable assets. Readers are given a toll-free number to call.

Today’s scripture reminds us of what is often the believer’s most valuable unclaimed asset: the Holy Spirit. We have instructions on how to retrieve this treasure. God invites us to contact Him immediately, using the high-speed lines of faith. If government authorities urge people to call for unclaimed properties, “how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to those who ask Him?” (Luke 11:13). Promised, provided, and now just waiting for a call of faith.
