Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said,
“Never will I leave you;
never will I forsake you.”
So we say with confidence,
“The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid.
What can man do to me?”
(Hebrews 13:5-6 (NIV))
In today’s society, it is socially acceptable to love money. All day we are bombarded by evidence of this. Big houses, expensive cars, expensive toys. All of society is money driven. It is easy to say that we do not love money, but see how long you last without the luxuries that money brings. Even in this money crazed world, the most precious thing that we can possess is one that comes free. All we have to do is ask for it. What is this thing?
God knew from the beginning that we would be absorbed in money. The world belongs to Satan at this point, and Satan is pushing a lie. God works contrary to the way the world works. It is for this reason that Salvation is free. Even before Jesus came, God had it planned.
For this is what the LORD says:
“You were sold for nothing,
and without money you will be redeemed.”
Salvation is not something that we can buy or earn, but is something that is freely given so that all may partake if they choose.
Have you made your choice to receive what money cannot buy?
