The Goal of the Gospel

  The goal of the gospel is that,
Loving the Lord Jesus
With the first love,
We would pour out upon Him,
Pour out upon Him
What is most precious to us,
Even our most costly and valuable
Spiritual treasure,
“Wasting” ourselves upon Him.
Even our most costly and valuable
Spiritual treasure,
“Wasting” ourselves upon Him.
25

I wonder what is the meaning of spiritual treasure in this song.

What does spiritual treasure here refer to?

This song reminded me of my favorite footnote, from Matthew 8:26 -

"The disciples considered Mary's love offering to the Lord a waste. Throughout the past twenty centuries thousands of precious lives, heart treasures, high positions, and golden futures have been "wasted" upon the Lord Jesus. To those who love Him in such a way He is altogether lovely and worthy of their offering. What they have poured upon Him is not a waste but a fragrant testimony of His sweetness."

Lord, this is my consecration to You.

I love You Lord. I willingly waste myself upon You.

I'm eating some sweets while enjoying this hymn, but the song is much sweeter than the food. We are not wasting our life while serving the Lord, it's most valuable heavenly thing.

I'm Shu, 26 now, accomodating in Matsudo, Japan.

I'm originally from Shanghai, China... but I am not good at speaking a kind of Standard Chinese.

I still remember that training in Anaheim, brother asked us all (the young people) to stand up and sing this banner song, and asked the elders to pray for us while we were singing.

It truly touched my heart, and made me consecrate myself to my dear Lord.

Цель благовестия состоит в том, чтоб, любя

Господа Иисуса первой любовью,

Мы изливали на Него

Самое драгоценное для нас,

Даже самое дорогое и ценное

Духовное сокровище,

Ценное духовное сокровище, «растрачивая»

Себя на Него, на Него.

Went on a trip with my friends and fell in love with this song. I have it on my YouTube page and listen to it all the time.
