A treasure is something valuable enough that it is put in a special place so all can observe it,or hidden away so none can enjoy it. Wealthy people put their jewelry and and other treasures in locked boxes so no one will steal them. They live in fear of possible loss. How nice it is when national or personal treasures are put on display so all can appreciate their beauty and value.
The glory of God is divine treasure that has been on display on many occasions throughout history..Abraham saw it when God confirmed His covenant with him. Jacob saw it from his stone pillow. Moses and Israel followed it from Egypt to Canaan.. Peter,James and John saw it on the Mount of Transfiguration.
The resurrection and glorification of the Lord Jesus Christ Made it possible for every believer to partake of this divine treasure while still in their earthly bodies.When we first believed in Christ we were given "the light of the knowledge of God in the face of Jesus Christ."This permanent personal possession is the glory of God imparted to us by the Holy Spirit. He reveals the excellence of the knowledge of Christ. What an amazing treasure to hold in our earthly bodies!
