X marks the spot

Once again I’m deeply saddened by what’s being put out on the internet. Yesterday someone lashing out at someone else typed out, “when you pray to your Xtian God, who forgives and forgets, but I don’t.”

At first I thought what was that word? Then it dawned on me, the person was so opposed to Jesus, he couldn’t even type the word “Christ” and just replaced Him with an “X.” I guess kind of like taking Christ out of Christmas and saying Xmas.

Taking Christ out of the equation is not the answer. As a matter of fact, He is the solution! (You can fact check me if you’d like.)

Inadvertently, this person just handed me the answer on a silver platter. X marks the spot. An X is what you put on your map to mark the spot where you buried your treasure.

Well folks, I’ve buried untold riches and wealth, and I’m getting a magic marker and drawing an X over my heart, because that’s where my treasure lies.

“I am contending for you that your hearts will be wrapped in the comfort of heaven and woven together into love’s fabric. This will give you access to all the riches of God as you experience the revelation of God’s great mystery—Christ. For our spiritual wealth is in him, like hidden treasure waiting to be discovered—heaven’s wisdom and endless riches of revelation knowledge.” (Col. 2:2-3 [TPT]

Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit live in me. That is all the treasure I need. And this poor person who posted what he thought was a hateful remark, is looking for fulfillment and treasure in all the wrongs places, and is missing the mark.

I’ll bet he didn’t expect this post to go out around the world! See, God really does make all things work out for good!

So get out your magic markers and put a big ol’ X on your treasure map!
