Matthew 13:44

“The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field. When a man found it, he hid it again, and then in his joy went and sold all he had and bought that field" 

The kingdom of God is worth more than all of your possessions but make no mistake, you cannot afford the kingdom of God. If the owner of that field knew just exactly what was in it, he would have never sold it.  God cannot be bought.  However, to all those who seek it with joy it is freely given  to them by the Father through the adoption afforded by the blood of the True Son, Jesus Christ.

You are a son of God if you are in Christ and a co-heir with Christ to the riches of the Kingdom.  The Kingdom of God is freely given to everyone who considers God their Father and loves, honors, and obeys him as a child would their parent.  God would never think to make his children earn his inheritance, but freely gives it.   Not only this, he purchased men and women by the blood of Jesus as sons and daughters just so more people can share in his inheritance.

We have a gracious, forgiving, and benevolent Father!  The entire world and everything in it belongs to Him;  it is his inheritance to pass on to his children.
