Sigmund Ivarsson's comment on 2013-10-11 02:41:45:

The treasure field is the body of the true believer. You know what a false believer looks like. They attend church, do good deeds, keep good appearances and cause no problems but they cannot believe because they have no faith. So the true believer is the field and the treasure therein in their faith. If you have faith, no matter how small it is your treasure. You will give up everything in life to protect that treasure. If you don't you will just keep up appearances like an unbeliever should. However it takes faith to see and recognize God in another human being. This is the treasure. All the body of Christ coming together that Christ might rule the kingdom of God by renewing your mind. The mind of Christ
