MORNINGTIME 4072by Benjamin Munsell on August 9, 2022
Verily I say unto thee, Thou shalt by no means come out thence, till thou hast PAID the uttermost farthing. Matthew 5:26. I tell thee, thou shalt not depart thence, till thou hast PAID the very last mite. Luke 12:59. For the WAGES of sin is death; but the GIFT of God is Eternal Life through Jesus Christ our Lord. Romans 6:23. If you really want to insult, offend and/or really tic someone off when they try to offer you some nice gift or blessing, just start giving them some really lame excuses as to why you can't receive it. Like, "Oh that's so sweet of you, but I really can't accept it", or "This is way too expensive, I know you really can't afford it", and this all-time winner, "This is very nice, but you should give it to someone more deserving than me". Someone wants to buy you a meal, or pay for a tank of gas, or buy you some bags of groceries, can you just accept their kindness? Or do YOU have to look at their gift and decide if you think their motive was right, or if YOU think they can or can't afford it, or the big one, you just don't like it because you know they're going to ask for something in return later on. Christ offers His Fully Paid For Salvation simply because He Loves You, no strings attached. It's Free, BUT HE ABSOLUTELY WILL NOT ACCEPT ANY PAYBACK, AND WILL NOT ALLOW YOU TO HELP WORK TO "EARN" YOUR GIFT. God Almighty died in your place, shed His Precious Blood to Pay in Full for your sins, and you dare think you want to do some kind of "works" to help Him pay for your sins? ALL religions and denominations are "works" based. You don't get to their "heaven" without doing their required work. All Christ asks for is Relationship. Just to Talk with you, Encourage you in a great way to Enjoy His Salvation, and to talk over your everyday problems with you It's an Offer you really don't want to pass up. It's so GOoD it comes with a Lifetime supply of Salvation Assurance, a Peace that passes understanding, and Joy unspeakable. All that to, Be Blessed.
