The value of something determines the level of motivation you will have to seek it. If you were to find £1, it becomes yours. You pick it up, but because it is only £1, your motivation ends quickly. However, if you were looking for one million pounds, you may lose sleep, go without eating and even forget about everything and everyone else to look for this valuable thing that could “change your life” – total motivation until the end.
“Again, the kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid; and for joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.” (Matthew 13:44)
What value does the Holy Spirit have in your life?
“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.” (John 14:26)
Helper: He will be with you when the pastor probably cannot – when someone dies, during an injustice, etc.
He will teach: Especially in the desert, with the pains of life.
Remind you: Trials, material blessings, healing, etc., won’t help you remember and persevere until the end. However, through a word or an example, the Holy Spirit brings to your remembrance a word that will strengthen you.
When you consider the value of the Holy Spirit, the kingdom of heaven becomes your priority.
Regardless of what has to be sacrificed, you will do everything that needs to be done, and no one will need to tell you what to do because you will know what it is expected. YOUR MOTIVATION WILL BE COMPLETE!
