Every truth elucidated in the word of God can stand alone for a while like a brilliant gemstone freed from its leather pouch. When the truth about “faith,” for instance, rolls out upon the table, we begin to see the sun’s rays refracting magical facets of understanding to our eyes. We pick up the jewel to examine it more closely, holding it to the light.
And although spectacular to our star struck hearts, the truth about “faith” beckons us to reflect a little deeper until we see that each of His jewels of knowledge must in the end be collected, analyzed, sorted out, and believed on. And finally, the Master Jeweler, the Spirit of God, then begins to assemble the gems of truth into the proper order for presentation. He sets them into a golden mount, and they become His masterpiece of beauty that dazzles every eye that sees it.
