One of my favorite movies of all time is called Backlash. It depicted the quest for hidden gems that spanned the globe, and lasted for almost a decade. When I first saw the movie, it was all about the thrill of the quest for the gems. I watched it once again a few weeks ago, and saw the clear depiction of the quest for God’s kingdom.
It too lasts for a long time, and it too spans the globe. The battle against the forces of evil is as real as any other battle, and the victory as sweet. I cannot imagine a more potent depiction of life as a disciple. I hope that each time I see the movie, I will encounter one more useful strategy that I can implement in my daily walk with God. I hope that eternity finds me on my knees, still digging for buried treasure in the kingdom of God.
