What Money Can’t Buy (Isaiah 55:6 )

Money can't buy happiness, but it can make you awfully comfortable while you're being miserable we-gotta-whole-lotta-money-but-we-still-pay-rent-cause-you-can-t-buy-a-house-in-heaven-2 eternal_life040410

Money is a necessary part of living. Without it, we couldn’t secure the necessities or luxuries of life. But there are things money can’t buy. As preacher W. A. Criswell said, “Money will buy luxuries, but it will not buy spiritual power. Money will buy advancement and preferment, but it will not buy recognition of God. Money will buy … favor and accolades, but it will not buy soul respect.”

The greatest good – so great that it is in a category all by itself – cannot be bought. If the entire human race were to bankrupt its resources in an effort to buy forgiveness of sin and eternal life with Jesus, it would be infinitely insufficient. All the wealth of the whole world cannot purchase the supreme blessing of forgiveness and heaven.

We’ll never accumulate enough riches to purchase a place in the paradise of God. But there’s good news! Salvation can be ours “without money and without price,” according to Isaiah 55:1.

Have you trusted Jesus as your Savior? You need only to stretch out your empty hands in childlike faith to the Lord (John 1:12). Cry out to Him and confess your sin. “He will abundantly pardon” (Isaiah 55:7). – Vernon Grounds

I am redeemed, but not with silver;

I am bought, but not with gold;

Bought with a price – the blood of Jesus,

Precious price of love untold. – Gray

The faintest know of faith opens wide the door of forgiveness.
