Treasured Up

Treasured Up

When the shepherds came  and saw the baby Jesus, they most likely told Joseph and Mary their experience  with the angels’ announcement and praise  to the Lord.     And then,  they went and told others  what the angels had told them  about this Christ Child.     That was an awesome experience  for Mary,  so we read  in Luke 2:19,

But Mary treasured up  all these things,  pondering them  in her heart.

Yes, it’s now over 2,000 years later,  but we also  need  to treasure up  all these things  in our hearts and minds.     We need  to ponder what really took place  and how God Almighty worked  so many things together  to fulfill His word, saying He would give us a Savior,  who would take away all  of our sins.    We even need  to ponder the consequences of sins  that are not repented of.

People treasure a lot of stuff  in this world,  but it’s all stuff  that will pass away.     We will have real,  honest-to-goodness eternal  treasure  when we accept this Jesus  as our Savior,  King,  and Lord.     We can treasure up these happenings  by reading these accounts  in the Bible,  and meditating on them.     We are  to store them up  in our hearts,  so that when times are rough,  these treasures  will strengthen and comfort us.

A part of the treasuring  of these happenings is  to memorize verses connected  to these happenings.     We can also think  about how these events affect our lives  when we accept Jesus  as our Savior.     Such pondering will help us  in times of stress  because we will be dwelling  on the truths of God  and His love for us.

Pondering truth has so many benefits  when the world is trying to twist the facts  and promote their idolatries,   superstitions,  and false teachings.     And,  remembering these truths will bring us the peace  that we need  in this world.

As we treasure up God’s love  for us,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     My Lord,  Your power  to work all things  to fulfill Your prophecies  of our Savior  helps us to realize  Your truthfulness and faithfulness  in keeping all Your promises.     It all leads us to know  that  we really do have salvation  through faith  in Jesus Christ.    Blessed be Your name  for loving us so dearly.”
