Not for sale

Pardon is given without money and without price.  All that is required is that we should ask for it. “Ask and you shall receive.” (John 16:24)  The thief on the cross asked to be “remembered”.  He received much more.  All who come near with the same spirit receive the same grace. Why would you carry your burden any longer? Imagine hearing the Lord say, “Son, daughter, your sins are forgiven you. . .go in peace.” (Luke 7:48-50) Asking God is a great test of faith.  It requires us to believe in Him rather than “pay our own way”.  It is, however, the secret of all spiritual life.  We cannot purchase this great gift.  The only way we can have it by asking and receiving. “It is by grace we are saved, through faith, and this not of ourselves.  It is the gift of God”
