Scripture: Ephesians 1:18
"The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints."

"Jesus said, 'Lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: for where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.' The instruction is to 'lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven.' It is for your own interest to secure heavenly riches. These alone, of all that you possess, are really yours. The treasure laid up in heaven is imperishable. No fire or flood can destroy it, no thief despoil it, no moth or rust corrupt it; for it is in the keeping of God.

"This treasure, which Christ esteems as precious above all estimate, is 'the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints' (Ephesians 1:18). The disciples of Christ are called His jewels, His precious and peculiar treasure. . . . Christ looks upon His people in their purity and perfection as the reward of all His sufferings, His humiliation, and His love, and the supplement of His glory-Christ, the great Center, from whom radiates all glory."1
