“In him lie hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” (Colossians 2:3, NLT).
One of the truly amazing things about life is when you’re young, you think you know everything and when you get older, you realize how much you don’t know. The only difference between now and when I was growing up is kids really do know more than their parents and grandparents when it comes to technology. Almost anyone under 20 can fix any gadget problem.
Jesus will always know more than us—he knows everything there is to know. But not only are all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge about life, our world and the universe hidden in him, he himself is a treasure. John said all the books in the world couldn’t contain an account of merely what he did on earth (John 21:25), let alone all there is to know about him, his Father and the Holy Spirit. An amazing thing about knowing God is there is always more to know. How wonderful it is that he wants to share himself with us.
