Christian Hedonism changes how we think about conversion. Matthew 13:44: “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.”
“Becoming a Christian is not only believing truth; it’s finding a treasure.”
What is becoming a Christian? Becoming a Christian is not only believing truth; it’s finding a treasure. That’s what it means to become a Christian. You find the treasure. And if you find the treasure that is worth your selling everything to have, it’s the greatest treasure imaginable.
So, have you found him? I’m not asking if you’re going to church, signed the card, prayed the prayer, or believe doctrines. I’m saying, Have you found him? Are you explosively ready to let it all go to have him? Or is he just marginal and everything in here is central? Then maybe you’re not a Christian. To be converted is to find Christ as a treasure.
