You cannot buy grace. It's free and yours for the taking. The Church must be careful to not make grace the product of submission, repentance, giving, emotions, bible reading, prayer, service, or mission work. Grace is not a product to be bartered, traded, or sold. Grace is a free gift. Like air into your lungs breathe it in and when you do allow it to create space for God to dwell in the form of the Holy Spirit. And when you do...freedom, salvation, repentance, prayer, bible study, service, and transformation will naturally come and also inhabit your being.
I pray that this is the story and concept of God that will carry on another 500 years. Thank you Luther! Thank you Jesus!!
I accept your gift of grace and I look forward to the transformation taking place in me each day.
