Matthew 13:44-46 (NIV)
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.
45 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. 46 When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it.
The point here is not that the kingdom is bought, but that if it costs you everything you have, it’s worth it. Some don’t come to Christ because of the cost. The problem, however, is not the greatness of the cost, the problem is how little they value of
