What do you believe to be the most expensive treasure in the world? Something made of gold, or diamonds, or bought for a very high price. In this message, Dr. Merritt relates finding what he believes to be the most valuable treasure we can possess in all the world. "It" can’t be bought for money. It cannot be bartered by trade. If people really understood how precious and how powerful it is, if they knew the peace, the joy and the happiness that comes from finding it, no one would think twice about selling their very soul to get it. What is it? "IT" is the will of God. It is God’s desire that you find, know, and do His will. The big question is, “How?" How do you determine God’s practical will for your life?
"The first and the most basic way that God reveals His will is through His Word. Whenever you see these words in the scripture--'This is the will of God'--there is one thing you can know. You just found God’s will. If you disobey His Word you are out of His will." --Dr. Merritt
