A Busine$$ Proposition-faithwriters
Acts 8: 18-24

The blessings of My Kingdom are not to be had in exchange for filthy lucre, although many gold-diggers set themselves up as My sales representatives, and try to corner the market.

Simon the Sorcerer had just been converted and baptized, but he had not yet made a complete break with his old ways of thinking. Simon still considered himself a magician, and wanted to be able to impress people by working showy miracles. He asked the Apostle Peter to sell him the power of the Holy Ghost. Peter replied: “May your money perish with you, because you thought that the Gift of God could be bought with money.”

Only Simon’s immediate repentance saved him from death. If I was furious with a new convert who tried to purchase My favors, then how much more am I indignant against those who have known the Way to Life for years, and yet have made a fortune by pretending to sell My favors to gullible souls!

For those who seek to prosper from the gifts of God, they do so with blood on their hands....May we ever remember the cost of our gifts and that "freely YOU have received - freely give" - thank you Patricia, a solemn reminder not to "try" God in ANY way.
