Who, when he had found
one pearl of great price,
went and sold all that he had,
and bought it.
What May be Meant by Selling All He Had
Selling all, signifies no more than parting with whatsoever his heart was inordinately set upon before he found this pearl.
I. With all his sins and horrid lusts; all that find Christ, part willingly with every evil habit, and with every evil act of sin; and by the spirit and grace of Christ, he is enabled to do this.
II. All his old company with whom he took delight, and among whom he dishonoured God.
III. All his former hopes of heaven, and the foundations he built those hopes upon.
IV. All his own external privileges.
V. All His own good works — and inherent righteousness — in point of justification he sold all.
