“In Him all the treasures of [divine] wisdom (comprehensive insight into the ways and purposes of God) and [all the riches of spiritual] knowledge and enlightenment are stored up and lie hidden.” Colossians 2:3 ->me: I do not need to look for wisdom of knowledge anywhere other than in the One I already possess. Everything I might want to ask about God and His purposes can and must now be answered – this is the force of this verse – with reference to the crucified and risen Jesus; the Messiah. I think when Paul says ‘Riches and Treasure’ being found in and through the Lord Jesus Christ, he uses those words to entice, me the reader, to explore it with eagerness. I do hunger for more. It is this hunger that also is a constant reminder of how much more perseverance I need to put into finding the fortune.
