TITLE: YOU CAN’T BUY OR EARN GRACE
AUTHORED BY PASTOR CHARLES AND FAVOUR CHUKWUEMEZIE
ACTS 8:20 “But Peter said unto him, Thy money perish with thee, because thou hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money.”
There are many things we appreciate as God’s gift to us. Life is a gift of God to us. Salvation is a gift of God to us. Abilities to do supernatural things like healing the sick, prophesying, working of miracles, etc
All of the things I mentioned are all a function of grace; you can’t buy them and you don’t even earn it. God gives them to whoever He wills, and it is evil to think you can buy God’s gifts with money.
Paul didn’t find it funny with this sorcerer who offered him money so that he could buy grace.
The same way, there are people who think they can earn grace. But that’s not how things are in the Kingdom. “Some will say to me, Lord, have we not prophesied in your name and done so many wonderful things in your name” but my answer to them will be ‘I know you not, depart, you that workers of iniquity.
Everything you will receive from God, comes through grace in Christ, just as your salvation is. Never think your money or your works would buy grace. All you need is to believe and receive.
PRAYER AND DECLARATION
LORD, ALL HAVE, WILL EVER HAVE IS MADE AVAILABLE BY YOUR GRACE. FATHER, I AM GRATEFUL….AMEN
WORDS ON MARBLE
IF YOU CAN GET IT WITH MONEY AND WORKS, IT ISN’T GRACE AFTER ALL. ..CHARLES CHUKWUEMEZIE
