That Treasure Next to You – Will You Leave It Unopened?

 

Christians today are struggling with concerns, shortages and suffering while they sit next to a priceless treasure: Jesus Christ, Who can help them get rid of all spiritual and bodily troubles.

World today is a “vale of tears”, filled with troubles, sorrows, poor, angry, mean people, just because people have not known the peace and tranquillity given by God. Christians today are struggling with concerns, shortages and suffering while they sit next to a priceless treasure: Jesus Christ, Who can help them get rid of all spiritual and bodily trouble.

Oh, how come that people do not know this treasure? If only they would seek in the depths of the Gospel, they would find this treasure at once. Life in this world is filled with peace, serenity and sacred joy for those who live in together with our Lord and has come close to Him.
