Have you ever heard the saying, “Nothing is free.”  In the world this statement is true, but when it comes to the grace God gives us it is not.  1 Corinthians 2:12,Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God.”  Don’t mistake the fact that salvation was bought with the price of Jesus’s blood.  He did that for us because He loves us.  But, when we ask Christ to come into our lives the Holy Spirit resides in our hearts.  John the Baptist said, ” A man can receive nothing, except it be given him from heaven.”  All you have to do is ask Christ to come into your heart and He will.  We have to accept Christ into our hearts and the Spririt is a gift from heaven that will guide us through life.  Obedience requires death to our own wills and submitting our heart to Christ. Are you living a life full of purpose and meaning or just going through the motions?  Release your will to the Lord and receive what is freely yours!

 “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’  Matthew 25:21
