DIAMOND is the ultimate gemstone having many characteristics. Some are:
  1. It is the hardest material (that is very strong)
  2. Transparent
  3. Brillant
  4. Expensive and rare
  5. Pure in nature
  6. Beautiful
Who can say that diamonds are not beautiful and precious? Who can refuse a diamond gift? Who can pass by a diamond and leave it behind?No one can say the contrary because we are all aware of the value of DIAMONDS.
Henceforth, people of God, in order to please God me must actually be like these diamonds. God wants us to be valuable. Is it impossible? In fact, it is absolutely possible if we really want to it. How?
Let me explain pointwise in the order of the above characteristics.
  • Diamond is the hardest material known. It is known for its toughness and strength. The are used as metal cutters in industries. Actually to have this measureless value, we need to be strong and courageous to face anything that come to our way. Toughness works with resistance. So, by being resistant we are being strong. We need to be tough, sharp to cut off all evils from our life. Radical to everything that come to oppose our faith and wears off all struggles without being broken. Philippians 4:13  I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
  • Secondly, like diamonds, we need to be transparent. We must not show something that we are not, pretending in any way only to draw attention. We need to be sincere to ourselves and to our surroundings. This is what makes us different. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Hebrews 4:13 Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.  
  • Diamond is brillant. When something is brillant, it means it is reflecting light. The more brillant it is, the more light it is reflecting. So, for us to be brillant, we need to reflect the light of God. We must be filled with God’s presence and illuminates in this world. Psalm 97:11 Light is shed upon the righteous and joy on the upright in heart.
  • Diamonds are really very expensive and rare :so shall we be. We must be different from others. Not being conformed to this world ;in our ways, manners, character, fruits, etc. We must not be the easy- type person who accepts anything without discerning the good an the bad. We must be cautious and difficult. Not in the way to be repellant but in the way to attract others to become like us. Not to draw attention, but to make others see HIM through us. Psalm 139:14 I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well.
  • Pure in nature. Scientifically being pure means being free from any impurities and mixtures. But how can we be pure? We as spiritual beings we are divided into the three: Body, soul and spirit. So, to be pure we need to have a clean body, a clean soul and clean spirit. This means that we need to honour with our body and sanctify our flesh, we need to have clean heart free from hatred, egoism, jealousy, calomny, negative resentments,etc. We cannot be pure if we are still filled with impurities which come directly from hell. To be pure, we need to be filled with the Holy spirit. Proverbs 4:23 Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.
  • Diamonds are beautiful. Extraordinarily and mind-blowingly wonderful to the sight. So, how can be beautiful? We must keep in mind that spiritually speaking we are not talking about physical appearance here. To be beautiful in order to bear the value of a diamond,we need to be beautiful INSIDE. Internal beauty automatically reflects externally. The beautifuls are those who have a beautiful heart, those who are beautiful in their ways, attitudes, reactions towards others. A beautiful person is filled with love, joy and peace. So shall we be!! 1Peter3:3-4  Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as elaborate hairstyles and the wearing of gold jewelry or fine clothes. Rather, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight.

So, people of God, if you really want to be like a diamond and be so valuable, you must want it and search for it! Good luck!

God bless you, Thash
